Feeding Fish

When water temps are at their warmest, the fish are constantly feeding.

Bog Benefits

Mosquitoes need calm flat water to lay their eggs. The combination of moving water and fish to consume the mosquito larvae means this pond is not a home to mosquitoes. Mosquito predators like dragonfly, however, thrive in the bog area.

Aquaponic Grow Beds
