      Go to a pet store and buy a couple of goldfish. They are a very

      hearty fish, and they will eat the larvae. I haven’t bought goldfish

      in a very long time, but I can’t see a couple of goldfish costing

      more than $5, if that much. Plus, you will want to get some goldfish

      feed for after they eat all the larvae. The fish will be sold in a

      bag, sealed with water in it, and air. Float the bag in the pond for

      about half an hour so the water will get to the same temperature,

      then just open the bag and pour out the fish.
