Ok so here's my plan for my outdoor set up this summer:
I'll be using small plastic tubs for spawning (like I already do) and some large (20+ gallon) tubs for growout. I have a lot of places these can go. I'll be stocking up on jars (I get for free at a local restaurant) since I'll probably get a lot of fry. My questions are...rainwater, can I use it since I live in the suburbs? Or will there be pollution? Next is humidity, I have pretty dry air here so will it harm the fry? Also what time should I start moving everything outside? I was thinking late May. Oh and snails...can I keep them outside too? I use common pond snails.
