Here’s Episode 3 of the “Saving Minami Killifish from Extinction” Project.
This time the lesson was about how to prepare the living environment for the killifish.
After a month-long dry, we started filling up the pond again.
These are found in rivers and swamps all over the world, and there were some in Okinawa too. The name came from the leaves in shape of a horn.
These can be found in rivers, lakes, swamps all over Japan. They usually sink underwater, but sometimes, can be found on the surface.
They are mostly found in swamps, and rice fields, towards western Japan. These species are also one of the vulnerable species near extinction.
Then, the soil.
Thanks to Mr. Tokutake, he brought us a few bags of soil for the pond.
This will be a good layer on the bottom of the pond, and it will help the water plants grow.
