This morning, Little Chris (son) asked for either a 125g Albino Oscar aquarium or a pond. Since I don't have room for my old 6ft tank, I am surprising him with a pond. I just hope he doesn't get too disappointed when he find out its only a 6 gallon container pond. lol
I'd like to stock it with a few minnows, Ghost/Glass shrimp and duckweed/frogbit/dwarf water lettuce(?) for cover. It holds exactly 5g with stones and gravel/pebbles
I tested the water last night/this morning before I buried it and water temp was 58 deg at 3:30 am while air was 54 deg.
Since its now 80% buried, I'm hoping it will stay in the low 60s at night
Am I destined for disaster with such a small pond? Suggestions, advice or criticism welcome.
