    You can use the tadpoles during summer months and small fish(cheap R5 guppies if you can/want) for the winter. Those dragonfly nymphs are mean little critters.

    Just a few more pointers. If you plan on stacking rocks on top of each other, it would be a good idea to glue them together. I'm not sure about diseases on the damsels and dragonflies, but keep an eye out and also for dead bugs floating around.

    I hope your project is a success and keep us up to date on anything new happening. If you have more questions, just send me a PM. Good luck

    AHHEEMM, threading a live stonefly or mayfly nymph on a hook is NOT considered flyfishing old chap.

    There again who gives a sh!t.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.
