    Year Round Guppy Pond Possible?

Id like to form it with cement blocks and put flagstone on the outside to...

    30 Gallon Tank Help! Why Are My Guppies Dying?

    I know the post is a month old but my suggestion for the future is to get a clean food grade 55 gallon barrel or trash can. Fill it with water and let it sit 3 days before a water change to be certain. Keep it next to the pond and leave the lid off but cover it with a shady material or cloth to...
