This has eluded me for a long time. Yesterday I finally managed to capture them on camera. I had cleaned [siphoned] the bottom debris on the liner so that I can view a clear background. There was some sunlight also in the morning to that corner of my small pond. I had put in some fish food. So they all came - there are about 9 in number. They are quick. They catch food and disappear beneath the lily leaves. I also found this link and got some information. This has been in my pond since 3 years and enjoying their stay and lives! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_barb
P.S. I also discovered now, that I can attach more than one picture per post!!! This is nice!
Never read a blog before but I read yours.
All I can say is you did an amazing job on both house and gardens and pond. What you had to go through to get it I'm sure wasn't easy but also sure you are happy to own it now and your ancestors would be very proud of you.
Hi Dinu! Long time no see --- or I am looking in all the wrong places. lol. I will have to go see how your house and yard are coming. I bet it will be a surprise as it has been some time since I last looked.
Hi Dinu-it's been a long time. Nice Tiger Barbs. I had those as a kid. Yours are three inches long???? Wow, I guess it's true what they say about the fish home. Mine were about 3/4 of an inch full grown in a 20 gallon tank . . .
Get a snorkle, underwater camera, weights. Then sit on the bottom and wait. ROTFL...only way it would work with my fish. Oh, and a pina colada toside with ---- oh that wouldn't work with the snorkle. ah well.
