    • Miyagis are beautiful but above ground pools are cheaper and more efficient
    • If you can dig a hole go as deep as is practical
    • Use either local fish or fish that are endemic to a climate like your own
    • Do not adjust PH, etc. find fish that live in your natural water source
    • If you are not on a well you really and I mean really need to harness rain catch
    • Don’t hesitate to use commercial feed
  • This is something you really will not learn and understand until you do it
