Outdoor set up......FINALLY!!

Just set up yesterday.....currently one 4 gallon spawning tub, one 16 gallon growout tub, one 22 gallon water holding tub (for water changes) and of course the jars. I will be moving my two 30 gallons and a 20 gallon long out there too within a couple of weeks.

Good thing my mom has strep and I asked her when she was half asleep hehe.

The temps at night are down to just under 60F and about 90F during the day. My super red pair is gettin conditioned and will be my first outdoor spawn. I have to get my metallics outside too and then guppies.

It needs to rain......I'm not gonna use rain water (worried about pollution) but I want some mosquitos.

As for birds...I doubt they'll see them...they're under the leaves of my maple tree....I'm more concerned about squirrels...but I'm putting up some mesh over them to keep em out.

Oh and these guys are interesting at night...it was 53F last night and I was makin sure they were ok (4 am too...love my fish xD) and they are ACTIVE! I heard they stop moving at 60F but these guys haven't been this active for months. The males are building nests and my sick fish are getting better fast. Oh and did I mention how much EASIER it is to clean jars with a hose and a 20 gallon tub a fresh treated water? I'm gonna change their water 100% every other day.

And I just set up a spawn....easier to....no worrying about adjusting them to breeding tank water...just dump their jars into the tub, clap the lid on top and walk away. I should have eggs by tomorrow :)

And just to let you know the temps are fluctuating from over 90F down to just over 50F.
