Fish Habitat

It is easy to think that as long as fish are in water then they are happy, but this is not the case.  Fish, just like other animals, need some form of structure to provide security.  All research that has been done on fish habitat show that fish should have at least 25% - 40% of a pond with some form of structure whether it be natural (rocks, plants, old trees/limbs) or artificial (pvc piping, vinyl slats, pallets, etc.).  Less stressful fish means better growth, improved health and better spawning.
