I think some people come to sites like this to confirm their own previously developed ideas (good or bad), then get their panties in a wad when the feedback is not what they expected. The smart folks come here to tap into the vast well of experience, and then gratefully apply the acquired knowledge where applicable in their own situation. However, if you have been gathering most of your information from Facebook - which often varies from poor to downright ignorant - you will not appreciate what you can get on this forum. From my own experience, this site has been a goldmine...
Very well said!

The other problem I always see if people expecting that their pets need what we consider comfort and sustainability.
Muck for instance is hardly that to microbes and bacteria its building blocks for both as a home and a crop of food for them .
In the winter many want to bring the fish in to keep them warm . TRILLIONS UPON TRILLIONS of fish stay in the waters as temps drop and they go into a pokey state. The wife and I love to watch the fish at this time of year. There so dopey it's like watching a drunk try to eat. Some finds the cheeks and ears before it makes it to there mouths. It's what fish inverts and microbes do they don't have thermostats . The grin and bare it.

it's now official; no 'dormancy' for our pond fish, that torpor is now gonna be called the 'pokey state'!!!

Be sure and like GB's post if you agree!!!
