Hi, I have 2 questions. First I have a brook in the woods bhhind my house and there are many plants in it and My parents decided on maybe installing a koi pond in my backyard. Is it possible to use the plants in the brook in the pond. The next question is can i use those plants in an aquarium.

HAVE THEM STOP BY, WE HAVE ALL THAT EQUIPMENT AND INSTALLATION SERVICE IF THEY WANT.

Is it possible to use the plants in the brook in the pond.
PROBABLY,
I'M GOING TO TRY EXPERIMENTING WITH SOME NATIVES THIS SUMMER.

The next question is can i use those plants in an aquarium.
BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT BOTH AQUARIUMS AND SOME GARDEN PONDS GET TOO WARM FOR NEW ENGLAND LAKE SPECIES.
BUT I'M GOING TO TRY A FEW.

We thought we'd start it in the summer ( when schools out) and Ive had the plant type i waned to use in a water bottle since saturday so the roots dig in and im going to test it in a ten gallon . it looks like a clover type of weed but it grows in very large amounts. the brook also contains garder snakes, frogs and grass pickerels and used to have common minnows but i think the pickerel ate them.
