GOLDFISH IN THE POND

Last weekend, decided to buy some goldfishes…

Went to the local DIY and bought three Ko-aka goldfish… literally ‘Little Red’ goldfish…

Size… about 4 centimeters from head to tail…

Had planned to get the fast swimming, elegant Comet or the pretty but hardy Shubunkin

But chose the Ko-aka because they were the cheapest (ahahaahaaa… Lrong the el-cheapo!)…

The water in the pond was rather cool, so I took time to orientate them to the temperature before releasing them into the water…

They seemed so thrilled… darting and swimming around the pond…

Wooh… another aspect of joy to look forward to each day…

Meanwhile, the water in the unlined pond is getting clearer…

Initially the color of milk tea, we now have what looks a bit like ‘lemonade’…

In other words, the pond is becoming more translucent and pretty (?)

The tadpoles are becoming fatter…

I feed them nothing, so they must be consuming some minute organisms that found their way into the pond…

I had added in a patch of water plants and the baby kermits seem to enjoy chewing on the moss that gathers around the plant leaves…

Yeeeee…
