Sick Fish by Scott Teetsel
I bought a couple new goldfish (forgot the actual type) yesterday and noticed today that one was just floating below the surface and not really moving much. He wasn't gasping and would occasionally swim around, but for the most part, just floated. I separated him from the rest and now tonight he...

Pump Question by infoseeker
I'm a total newbie, so my suggestion may be WAY off track with your meaning; but I made an 'accidental' filter. I bought a pretty bamboo spout and attached it to the hose from the pump. The hose from the pump is bigger than the plastic hose that runs through the bamboo. At any rate, the...

Suicidal koi survives...can it grow new scales? by Phyllis and Jim Hurley
We have had plastic milk crates in our pond for years without any mishaps. Then, about ten days ago, one of our pretty fantail koi decided to push through an opening that was too small. Jim came out and saw it at the bottom, about 1/2 way through the crate, with tadpoles on it. He assumed...

Pond woman into the lion's den (umm...pond) by Phyllis and Jim Hurley
Must be an interesting feeling to semi-spam a news group and then to be mocked, lampooned, reviewed and questioned by forty or so people. Hang in there pond woman. Nice remarks and few spams can rehabilitate an image. The ng is very much into human...

Baby koi or goldfish? by Sue Alexandre
Hi. I found some fish eggs on one of my plants a few weeks ago, so I took the plant from the big koi and golfish pond and put it in the new, smaller turtle pond. I figured when the goldfish hatched, it would be good food for the turtles. Today I noticed about 10 baby fish (no more than 1/2 long)...

Please help me help my fish by Nedra
Poor Fishie! It sounds to me like it is a SHE ... and She has been chased almost to death. Think Spawning. The black sounds like wounds that are healing. She needs a Rest. If the other fish are leaving her alone I may think about leaving her in the pond. If they still want to chase her, then...

Salting the pond by Malcolm H
Hi ponders My pond is little more than a puddle when compared to some of the ones that I have seen belonging to you pond stalwarts. 6'x5'x2.5'x6 if my maths are correct = 450 gall. The pond is quite heavily planted and the water is crystal clear. The pump feeding the waterfall changes the pond...

Toads are back! by Roger Grady
"Lee Brouillet" wrote: Our Southern Toads are "good" for about 4 cycles each Spring/Summer. Their trilling is pretty nice, except when you get a whole slew of them in the pond, in which case they become deafening! The large ones are females, and the smaller ones are males....

Cheap rocks? by Wilson
I like the looks of my waterfall but I checked around for prices of small white cobblestones because I liked the looks of them....$175 for a 1/2 palette (GAK!) That's not a lot of rock. Anyone know of a cheaper alternative? I'm in central Missouri. Thanks in advance... ~Wilson~
