Thanks Wes for the shoal of Bambusas. They arrived larger than I thought they would be but once in the outside pond, I can't find them..haha. We'll see how they turn out in the pond. They do swim as a shoal and come near the surface.
Arrived well packed and very healthy.

I'm in SoCal. My pond water currently is at 65F. Never goes below 60F. They prefer 50F - 68F. Can they tolerant the warm Summer? We'll see. My water temp doesn't change much. I'm coastal.

Excited to see how these develop, I think a pond setup might be the best option for them. What kind of current do you have in your pond

Glad to see this Ken!

After 3-4 attempts I am bambusa-less again. I am determined to try again, now that I know "each and every way" to lose them!
