Hey guys,

I have a big plastic pond of around 100+ Litres going to waste. Is their anything I can put in their?

Demi,
Yep. Rounded river stones, water, guppies, a seasoned sponge filter, and sunlight. Wait a month for a good crop of algae on the stones, and place some of the stones in the tank. The shrimp and snail will dig the algae.

Demi,
Yes, good guppies, not those sold as feeders. Don't want to add disease with your algae. The 'fancy' guppies have a wide temperature range; 60-90 degrees, Fahrenheit of course.

Cherry barbs are good fish. Same thing with mosquito fish!

Demi, maybe you could use your snail infested gravel for the pond and get new gravel for your tank! Snail problem solved!thumbs2:

LOL, the pond was never developed!

I have a baby sister who is 8months and a toddler brother - Better be safe then sorry and not have a pond when I have siblings these ages..

That is a good plan. No need to risk a life. But you could cover it, or have it fenced in, like a swimming pool. But that is a bit of a job. Just a though.thumbs2: Being in Aussy and were you are you could have a reasonable amount of tropical fish in that size pond.

Hmm, I am considering the fencing idea.. Their are some nice long pikes out the back, I can hammer into the ground and then wire around it....

Depends on what part of Australia doesn't it. Anywhere south of Gold Coast and it would be too cold in winter. Depending on the location, some areas are too cold even in summer.
