Re: NANFA-- Outdoor Systems vs Indoor Systems

I have a 125 gallon pond outside and another one inside. Both identical size
and shape, made by cutting a 250 gallon plastic storage tank in half. I see
very good results in both of them, although different, because they have
different fish in them. The outdoor pool right now has three pumpkinseeds (from Mark)
and three Fundulus diaphanus (local fish). The indoor pool has a dozen or so
shiners and chubs caught locally. Both have water lilies. I have posted a
picture of the outside pool taken last year on the AKA members gallery web pages

My personal opinion is that volume of water and food play a big part. I
do not feed the outside fish but I feed the inside fish a variety of live and
frozen foods as well as a good staple flake food.
