We have a little 30-40g pond in the backyard and the reed we have has taken over half of it. Since I've been taking care of it I asked my mom if we could go by the nursery and buy a few aquatic plants for it.
So after deciding we are going to plant the reed in a pot(without a hole so it holds water) we left for the nursery. We bought a water iris with a unknown hitch hiking plant, a water lily, water hyacinth, and a grassy plant with small white puffballs. I'll take photos of them tomorrow :)
Before filling the pond back up I removed the pond from the wooden decorative container and my mom and I killed 2 black widows hiding in it O.O. Now it's all nice and spider safe(for now).
Oh, I also had a fish in there! I couldn't believe it! a little comet goldfish. I felt so bad for the poor thing because I left when the water was being siphoned out and when I returned he was in 1" of extremely mucky water, I tried to scoop him out but there wasn't enough water so I ran upstairs and took some conditioned water from my aquarium and put him in there. I was so sure the racoons had eaten this guy like his other 3 buddy's who disappeared about 2 months ago.
