Natural water should make fry stronger. Care full of parasites though - filters often can't keep them out.

Good luck.

Breeding in pond water like that worked very well for me my major problem was dragon fly larva eating my fry. I left daddy in and he ate most of them but one larva can do a spawn a lot of harm.

Cool

Nothing wrong using brackish water, but I would check the chemistry for high nitrates. No sense starting at the wrong end of the scale. I create my own aged brackish water in a 50 gallon plastic trash can with Indian almond leaves and conditioner.

Survival of the fittest, I guess.

I would NOT be able to put my babies into pond water... I'm too much of a germ freak. "HE'S GOING TO BE EATEN ALIVE BY THE PLAGUE GERMS THAT I JUST KNOW ARE IN THAT WATER!" ... Though, it actually sounds like it's much better for them then being raised in unnatural water. :P Your fry probably won't get sick as often as adults.
