Come in, the waters fine
We had a swimming pool
but after 17 years of cleaning it and paying for the upkeep and only
using it a few dozen times in all those years, i decided to turn it
into a fish pond instead. So i let it set unattended for a year.
It got murky and dark as sediment, leaves, and such fell in and drifted
to the bottom. Algae and fungi blossomed and soon the pool had
transformed into a pond. We got some fish and put them in there,
unattended to see if they would live. We never fed them but
they thrived alone and bred as well. When i started to
notice little fishes, then we went back to the pet store and got some
more. Our fish population started out at around 25 and
the longest was only about 3" or so but now we have hundreds
and some are over 8" long. I guess the unrestricted area
and the occasional piece of bread i toss them produces growth.
One of their favorite treats is Cheerios, they love Cheerios and they
float till they are all eaten.
