First outdoor pond in Ohio


Recommended Posts

I feel so bad. I got guppy babies for free with a purchase of some cherry shrimp the other day (there were so many in the tank they couldn't separate them from the shrimp). I was planning on starting my first outdoor pond, and I thought, hey, I could throw these guys in there instead of keeping them with the shrimp (because I'm trying like heck to get my shrimp to feel comfy enough to make some babies here eventually).

But I live in Ohio. And of course it's freezing cold this weekend at the end of freakin May, (rainy in the 40s and 50s--it WAS in the high 80s!!) and those poor guppies are out there and may have died already due to how cold the water temps are. 

I just feel really bad. 😕

Yeah... lost a few here in Western MD too. If any survive they’ll be really something come end of summer. Don’t feel too bad anyhow. Got to learn whilst living...
