    The inevitable algae outbreak occurred when the weather heated up but has finally settled
    down. On the plus side it gives the tadpoles a great food source and hiding area
    Have thrown 4 UKR rainbows in there for the warmer months, see if they breed or not



    Amazing what eucalypts can do. These were freshly cut from a fallen tree in the yard and started sprouting
    about one and a half months later

    Cheers

    Starting to look very natural. Love the DW as well. Looking forward to growth in 2017.

    Yeah, very cool to have a whole tree fallen into the pond, the habitats created could be amazing. I'd imagine the species list you could house would also be impressive

    An update shot
    There are ridiculous amounts of tadpoles and cherry shrimp in there having
    a merry ole time
    Have bred up some Murray river rainbows to release in there this weekend.
    Hopefully they will graze on some of the algae that is prevailant around the base of the
    lillys especially
    The surround ground covers are filling in nicely

    Cheers

    Superb stuff indeed! So natural looking!! You need to install a live underwater cam and broadcast it in your tele at home.
