These fish are beautiful and would be perfect in either a dry stream bed or a pond. However, if you live in a climate prone to hail, be sure that they are place in a sheltered location to prevent hail damage. ~EBM
Dry stream beds are a practical solution to drainage problems. In winter, this meandering, rock-lined channel handles and directs water flow while preventing erosion. When dry in summer it serves as a handsome garden feature.
You can turn drainage solutions into features that enhance your landscape—and protect natural waterways. Ditches can be landscaped as swales that look like creek beds or small meadows. Gutter water can flow into rain gardens that provide a habitat for butterflies and birds.
