Aquaphiles

There are enough truisms about ducks and water, but the thing is they are all true.

Our Cayugas can’t get enough of it. When their pond was given a refill these two were at their ablutions as soon as there was an inch of water

  1. Is Rob the Bob a Plecostomus? They can get really big. A friend of mine had one that grew to about a foot long. It was a lovely fish. Great bottom feeders and cleaners in general.

  2. Yes he is. We had one before which lived quite a while but they really should have a heated tank so this time we have moved from not heating to maintaining 22 degrees. We are relying on him to clean up the glass which has got a bit murky since his predecessor died.
