??Predator Quiz?? by Anne Lurie
I'd guess the culprit was a great blue heron, as I think a 13" fish might be bit tough for the smaller green heron to manage. As for not noticing a great blue heron, I assumed that Chad meant there was no one home between 6:30 am & 5:30 pm to see the GBH (birder's jargon). Anne Lurie Raleigh, NC

Stressed out Fish by LisaCS1
Your fish will not starve as there's plenty for them to eat in the pond. You were the victim of a predator, maybe a Heron, like we had several times in the spring. Your fish are afraid right now, but will come around in another day or so. We put out a scarecrow to keep the Heron away and so far...

ossprey got one of my koi by LisaCS1
We were the victim of several Heron attacks this spring and then put up a scarecrow near where we feed them. We lost four fish within a two week period, but haven't had any more visitors since the scarecrow went up. Must be doing his job.

Ultimate Lotus Garden by ~ jan JJsPond.us
How deep are your pots? Since I have permission to do another pond just for the lotus, I'd like to densely pack one and then use it as feeder for a stream down the road. Could I use shallow, but wide potts and sit them in the pond? BV. 6"-7" deep, guessing without measuring. ~ jan See my...

Thanks, BV, for the explanation -- and special thanks to bobkiely for asking the question that I, for one, had not dared to ask! I'm not only a newbie to rec.ponds, but I apparently have something set wrong on Outlook Express so I don't get all the posts in a thread -- I'd like to claim...
