In the future I plan to have a pond just for small fish only. With a max size fish of about 8 inch long.
Species I know of which I think I could keep are gudgeon, stone loach, rainbow dace, common minnows, rosy minnows, white cloud mountain minnows, red bellied dace and bitterling. These should all get along without conflict. However I don't know how I would go about population control. Perhaps adding a population of bullheads(miller's thumb) would keep some numbers down. However these would probably only predate on fish near the bottom and in the rocks such as small loaches.
Does anybody else know of any possible cold water fish smaller than 8 inch that I could keep in an outdoor pond all year round. Could you please tell me if they are prefdatorial or not aswell.
Thanks in advance.
