So I have a plastic tray, probably 1 and a half feet wide, 4 inches or so deep with peat at the bottom and so the water is quite tea colored. There is a big gap of room where I have nothing to put there (2 inches tall, 5 inches wide) and space in between the pots. I think an easy Aquatic Utric would do good here like U. gibba, but, can anyone help? Would that be okay? I suck at Utrics.
Could I just use one of the big holes in the backyard my dog has dug and dig it deeper and put some aquatics in it from around here and have them live here every summer? Or would the ground soil be too nutritious; if so, how can I fix it? I stink at this! If I got U. gibba for example and put it in the plastic tray to float, would it be too cold? The temps at night get down to 50F briefly, and the water is cold to the touch. Would this kill them?
