I built a backyard pond last year (2100 gal. freshwater) and to be
honest, the goldfish and koi that are normally found in
backyard/ornamental ponds don't really excite me that much. Can anyone
on this list offer some suggestions for native fishes that would do well
in a backyard pond, or any information on how I could potentially get
involved in breeding/keeping endangered species in my pond? I'm
interested in native fishes for educational and environmental reasons
primarily, but I also believe that native fishes would be more

Any comments, suggestions, or information would be very appreciated.

Thank you,
