Fish

Just had a walk to the Ornimental Lake at the far end of the estate and the fish are bonking their brains out. Earliest in the year I can remember.

Do they actually have babies that survive?

We were only saying today that we need to restock the 'fish pond' but the nearest place to get them is miles away.

Here's the fish pond

Dunno about pond fish but my tropical tank certainly has a self sustaining population of some fish varieties

Whenever our ponds or tropical fish tank have produced babies they seem to get eaten

Plenty of hiding places and pretty peaceful tankmates in my tropical setup, spotted a couple of platty fry tonight and seem to have 2 more neon tetra than I though now!

I would think some should Kaz. The amount of cover in your pond(?) is ideal. They do tend to stay black untill they get beyond eating size so you'd have trouble seeing them in there, especially being in the shade too.

I've got a pond full of bog standard goldfish Bodger and Kaz - you want some?
Bazzer

They'd be no use at all.
They've got a pond, not a standard bog and anyway, first flush and they'd all be gone.
