Are they hardy? I don't know, I just think platies survive through anything lol.

They do. Whiteclouds are hardier than platies. And they can survive well below freezing temps.
Still on the fence about this..
I will see..

That is beautiful! But bettas are warm water fish, needing temps 74 and above. You mentioned temps stay between 60-75, and long-term with those lower temps wouldn't be good for a betta. You'd be better off with white clouds, there are some pretty long-finned varieties.

Well the betta would we here only during summer. When the water is more than warm enough for a betta...
Were just having extremely unseasonably cold weather right now, so I'm holding off putting anything in.
In normal weather the water should be in the 80's from June to October. Sometimes as early as May and as late as November.

In fact it gets so hot and still during those summer months that I worry if whiteclouds will make it.

I think our cold weather is finally over. Today it was 97 out.

I think it was one of those years where we get a cold spring and early summer followed by an insanely hot late summer and fall..

Crazy summer here too. I was using a larger canvas patio umbrella to shade my tomatoes at Mid-day when we had two weeks of 95-100+ temps.

I just leave mine in the heat.... I've noticed that if i leave them alone and give them a big trim right before fall I can get them to last for years.

Lol.... Just visiting old friends... My old friend Laura just opened her own cheese shop/house so I came to visit and vacation and what not...
Actually I'm on my 3DS right now lol.... I'm in the middle of a rather diabolical puzzle game and decided to check in...


I did get it! I put one in this tub pond and one in my pond...

Oh! Other update! Captain Harlock's Chest of Eden has been destroyed.
In its place is a brand new 250 gallon pond... which is more than enough for me.
I completed construction on it the day before I left lol.
All I have done is build the walls, add the pond liner, and fill it up.
When I get back I plan on getting the pump for the waterfall, and the filter. Hopefully I will also get the actual waterfall done as well.

My grandfather got swayed into impulse buying this particular kind of brick (what a surprise), so my plans for the whole thing got skewed.

What happened... hmm...
Well... winter hit... life got crazy.

A lot of the plants died from winter but I expected that.

The mini lily I got has started throwing out leaves again after winter dormancy and I hope to get it blooming this summer.

I'll do a more complete update with pictures tomorrow.

The carnivorous plants on the side are out of dormancy and growing.
The pitcher plant seedling survived and has gotten much taller with a more defined shape to it. The seedlings pitcher has been open a week and its already full of bugs.
The fly trap is flowering. Which I'm excited about.

And the mini roses around the sides are growing, one bloomed.
