Fun summer platy pond


Recommended Posts

Started this small 12 Gal pond in may and it’s doing great! Lots of platys and lots of new fry. Also with the fun solar powered pump with a sponge filter. The water hyacinth in there has grow a lot and is making more. Hope it flowers.

Red! These are dwarf red coral platys. That I have had for about a year and been breeding them like crazy

Oooh, nice. I would imagine that they are the best color for pond viewing. They are a color I want to have one day when I don't have 6500 blue and silver ones!

Can you clarify, is the sponge filter connected to the solar powered fountain or is it being run off of a separate air pump? 

The sponge filter is being run off by a separate air pump.

It’s a lovely pond. How long is pond season where you are? 

I live in Kansas so probably August through early September.
