  • Moving tropicals outside

    Anybody else do this during the summer?
    I will start moving some endlers outside by mid next month. Not sure what else is going to play outside this year.

    I have never done that. Do you put them in a pond type setting or do you set up tanks outside? My aunt had some goldfish in a small outside pond one year and a heron ate them all.

        Me too. Our back yard is wet enough and there used to be a small pond on the property directly behind ours that got filled in, but I keep getting the evil eye when I say I want one.

          I have several large cattle watering troughs, 2 in ground ponds and several 100-500 gallon kiddy pools.
          I usually only put large plecos into the in grounds, so I only have to remove one or two large fish at seasons end.

            Do you have to run filtration and everything even in the in ground ponds. My sister has a small frog pond (actually I think it's half a big barrel) and I am pretty sure she has some kind of pump running because there is a small waterfall in there.

              The ingrounds have filtration. The others are just heavily planted.

                  Whirl, gears, whirl.

                  I few things to remember:
                  make it kid safe
                  make it so animals cannot get to fish
                  somewhere I always put out small fish, they love mosquitos
                  be aware of chemicals that may be used near the fish, weed killer, fertilizer, ect

                    Could you post a pic of your setup? I'd love to see it.

                    Also, to answer your question, no. But I'd like to.

                      I've had mollies outdoors year around, and Endlers. The mollies did much better. Endlers all died off. Also have a common pleco in the 150 somewhere... Never see him though lol

                          Hese not very big, last I saw him. 4 inches maybe. I added him a few months before it started getting cold, so he really hasn't had time to grow yet.

                          And Dino, WE NEED PICTURES!

                            They are a mess. I need to get in them and do some cleaning! I will see if I can find some old pictures.
