Five Little Indians - I mean fishes!

This is a half gallon whiskey barrel with a plastic liner. I've been meaning to get some fish all summer. Didn't want to move fish from my big pond so Wallyworld (Walmart) here we come.

I got 5 fish and they were 38 cents each. They're little bitty things - about an inch long. They're still alive and swimming around.

I don't know if they'll overwinter - the fish in the big pond do and I never have any freeze to death. The pond has frozen solid but that was many years ago - our winters have not been freezing cold in many years.
