Koi and Pond Orientation and Top Ten Koi and Pond Facts
The reason I did this section is because, oddly enough, I just dropped a Garden in my yard.
And I am blundering along making notes for next year. There were so many things I DID NOT KNOW and I wish I had.
And in this season I have killed and lost a lot of plants, which represents investments in my time, and money that I’ll never get back. I wish I knew perhaps the “Top Ten Facts To Make You A Success In Your Garden” and for example, “If you grow Tomatoes, you NEED Calcium” which I learned the hard way. “You NEED to water per the following interval” and “Here are the five main pests you’ll need to intercept”

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
