Summer Tub

Not very pretty but we have bent pvc to support the fish net and tarp. Fish net so no bears and such get in we are in the Adirondacks. Tarp for warmth with the cold and hot days we have. Styrofoam holding pothos. Then some water hyacinth and water lettuce. We have some white clouds and giant longfin danios in there and a shrimp. First year summer tubbing so go easy!20210712_130913.jpg.ec6d2b29d29a68367a0eae54057b9de0.jpg

I am going to share my tub here even though it was destroyed by an animal (probably a raccoon trying to eat the fish) last Friday just as all the plants were peaking.  The tub is a Tuff Stuff 40 gal stock tank that I started in early May with a heater as my first tub.  I have always wanted a pond but live in a townhouse so this tub is perfect.  The tub’s function is to bring the water element to the backyard featuring the plants and fish.  The plants are the only filtration and there is no air to allow for a much cooler temperature at the bottom of the tub under the cover of the plants.  The plants get full sun in the morning with afternoon shade.  The fish are a breeding colony of guppies at a relatively low stocking level.
