Baby fish and seedlings

Seedlings

Wadly says he’s got another baby fish in the tank.  I’ve laid on the floor and looked but haven’t gotten a glimpse yet.  The previous baby grew to be recognizable as a female guppy who is now nearly the same size as the adults.

Wadly stopped at Glacier yesterday and brought home five buckets of pea gravel for me.  I’m going to need more to fill my new grow bed (grout mixing pan – 7″x22″x32″), but it’s a good start.

I’m definitely going to fill the gutter with pea gravel and plant things in it.  It works too well not to.  I’m going to have to rework the overflow to keep the gravel in the gutter.  If I could find some hydroton locally I’d use that, as it’s much lighter than gravel, but I haven’t come across any yet.

I’ve got seeds showing growth in three of the five coco coir mats.  I’ve got seedlings coming up out of the gravel between the coco coir mats.  I’ve got some hollyhock seeds planted in the gravel, lovely purple ones.  I’m really looking forward to those popping up.
