Fish / Plant Stock

It's our first pond so we just picked up a few small fish from Petco. If we can keep them alive for a year, then maybe we'll get some bigger fish.

Currently we have:
4 submerged plants: anacharis, kabomba, hornwort, and a water lily.
2 bog plants: fiber optics, and lizard's tail.
