Found it:

Harlequin Rasbora
Pentazona Barb
Tiger Barb
Cardinal Tetra...maybe
Banded Gourami

This is just the beginning of the list. More research is needed before we make a decision.

Wow... 6000 square feet! That's a lot of veggies! I've never bothered to drag our water out to the garden (compost pile is waaayy closer!) When I had bettas I would use their water on the house plants and they loved it. I don't have any FW critters anymore. We went to a 75 gallon saltwater reef and are beginning our upgrade to our 125. Using that water is out, so I lost my free indoor fertilizer. Lol! I have been a novice gardener for years, mainly flowers with a few herbs. My husband however has expanded our gardens to include a set of 12x24 foot raised beds for produce and I have to admit, while not as pretty as my roses, they do taste much better. Enjoy your tanks!

My wife has a number of roses. I grow many of our flowers, and all of our vegetables, from seed. I refuse to buy any edible from a greenhouse. I also grow herbs from seed (except rosemary...just can't do it in my climate). I applaud your husbands efforts on the raised beds. I grow asparagus, strawberries and garlic in raised beds. The strawberries are just a dozen or so everbearing, so a small bed. The June bearing are in a 400 sf bed of their own (not a raised bed).

I don't think I could trust dumping tank water into my compost pile until I can send it off to be tested by my favorite lab. I have no knowledge as to whether it is good, bad or indifferent, but with a garden the size of mine, I can't take the chance.

If you ever want any gardening advice, please feel free to ask.

Thanks! I will do that. I'm excited that spring has finally arrived here in Ohio. We actually just turned and sifted compost this week to get ready. We have been discussing drainage in the back yard. I'm casually throwing out some ideas for a pond and major landscaping. Been wanting to try some tiered beds and drainage is always a good place to start. Lol... Hope my husband doesn't check the app or I'll be outed!

HAHAHA!!! Hope everything goes well for you! Drainage is always important, but the soil is critical. Think of it this way, you wouldn't put fish in improper water, why make plants suffer in improper soil?
