Daphnia from the local pond.

Just had the first rat-tailed maggot of the year from the half oak barrel 'pond' in my garden today. Almost nothing more entertaining than watching a 2cm bumblebee goby trying to eat a maggot of equal length.

Be careful i don't know much about bumblebee goby but i once had a Neon Tetra that choke to death with a blood worm :(

Hi all,

I think the Goby is probably fairly safe as Rat-tailed maggots are pretty squashy and don't have hard parts like a Blood-worms head capsule.
