Trees near pond by Mothership
Need to know if there are any trees that can be planted in close proximity (6ft. to 12ft.) to my pond that will not drop anything (leaves, fruit, etc.) that will wipe out my fish (golds, comets, shabumkins). Would prefer trees that will reach approx. 20ft with decent foliage to mask view of small...

Pump is working by Reel McKoi[_9_]

Winterizing Your Pump by JB
I have an OASE Nautilus 1600 gph pump that I hook up to a pre-filter every spring to help clear/filter the water in my 3,000 gallon pond until my biofalls filter kicks in. Then, I disconnect it and usually it sits on the bottom of the pond until I pull it up and store it. I'm curious as to the...

Observing Western Chorus Frogs in Colorado? by Jean-Pierre Abello
I read that the western chorus frog lives in most of Colorado. I would like to observe one, but so far I have had no luck. Would anyone know of any specific lakes or ponds in Colorado where one such frog has been spotted lately? Thanks

I'm building a new pond / stream on a slope-to-level surface. The rise is about 3 feet. All of this will sit behind a newly constructed retaining wall.
