The fish have arrived… but you can’t see them because the water is so murky!
The water was also freezing when I introduced them, so I hope that they’re okay. Hopefully plants and the fish themselves will help oxygenate and clear the water. My daughter started pulling at the plants and toppling them over by the way. That’s why the water isn’t as crystal clear as I had envisioned.
After a lot of faffing about with rocks, it just about looks okay. No, honestly it does. Don’t let the photo (Temporary net) fool you!
Look out for further updates from both ponds as the year progresses.
