I keep guppies in a pond year round. They've been there now for a year and are happy parents with over a hundred children. I live in San Diego/CA though so it doesn't get as hot. On hot days try floating containers with ice or cold water in them. That'll help. My advise is just to put them in with maybe a few ghost shrimp and/or some snails. Add rocks on the bottom and lots of floating plants fer hiding spots. The fish are hardy and will do well.

Right Oscars and most other Larger Cichlids do produce a lot of waste, but how do we deal with this problem in a tank? We get a go filtration system. In all my ponds I currently use a bucket Gravity Filter with a UV light (to keep algae at bay), simple but it works. Smile

So what type of fish are you planning on having Question

I've decided to setup a guppy pond, not totally tropical but still interesting.
The pond is an old wine barrel with a jug which water passes through. I think I might have too much flow, but I'll only be sure when I get fry.
