Goldfish for the rain barrel

Comets for the rainbarrel

Comets for the rainbarrel

Three Comet goldfish were purchased at the pet store today for the rain barrel. One has a black stripe on his back and a matching mustache that channels Rhett Butler (Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn) in Gone with the Wind. The other two are even brighter shades of orange, which is proving most useful in spotting them in the barrel itself.

The goal of keeping fish in the rain barrel is to protect the water from bugs (particularly mosquito larvae), and a little natural fish fertilizer can’t hurt either.

Crossing my fingers these guys enjoy their new habitat in the great blue barrel…

See the fish?
