This is so cute
The overall setup looks super cute, but there was one part in the directions that bothered me:
If you plan on taking the water garden outside, and then bringing it back inside later, mosquito fish are a good idea. Nobody wants mosquitoes hatching in their living room!
While the mosquito fish (Gambusia species) will keep the mosquito population under control, the water volume appears way too small to support one full time. I would suggest not putting the container outside to begin with, but if you insist on giving it a little extra sunlight during the summer 1) be careful not to let too much water evaporate, 2) do not put in direct, high-noon sunlight, for fear of scorching the leaves and 3) make sure you have an established aquarium to house your mosquito fish (or guppy, they should perform the same task) full-time, and 4) Again, don’t leave the fish in there for more than a couple of hours (depending on the volume of water). Any longer will cause undue stress and potentially allow ammonia (fish waste) to build up and harm, possibly kill, the fish.
