New Life in the Pond
The first residents of my pond community moved in yesterday. I bought 5 goldfish from Petsmart. These aren't fancy goldfish, or even koi. They are feeder goldfish that costs 29 cents each. My plan was to buy a few fish to make sure that the water was safe before spending a lot of money on nice fish. Since these goldfish's only purpose in life was to be fed to larger fish, I figured it wouldn't be a great loss if I found them belly up this morning. To my surprise, all of the fish survived and a few of them even surfaced when I went out to feed them tonight. If these continue to survive (and possibly thrive!), I'll go ahead and invest in some larger fish soon.
I received notice today that the tadpoles I won on EBay are enroute and should arrive tomorrow! I wonder what stage they will be in? The ad didn't say. I'm really excited about the tadpoles coming- it's so cool to watch them turn from fish to frog. Hmmm... I just thought about it-- what do tadpoles eat? I wonder if they'll eat goldfish flakes? I'd better do a little research on the net before they arrive.
