self powered pump/filter by cruxaustralis
During a break from digging my pond, and basking in the warm Queensland sunshine it occured to me that I could use the hydraulic pressure of the pond to pump/siphon water into my veggie filter. So i built a model using a 20 liter drum and it's been pumping/siphoning away like a beauty for a week. I...

frog crocking by Cuk
The frogs in my pond are in fine tune February and March of each year during the breeding season. They don't make any sounds during the rest of the year which I believe is normal for the Common Frog.

Blanketweed or Stringweed by Rick
Is Blanketweed something different than Stringweed? If yes how do you know the difference? How do you control them? I know about the Koi clay ( Kitty litter) for Stringweed.

Raccoon problem by Scott M.
I have just put in a beautiful Koi/goldfish pond and I'm sure that I have lost several fish to a raccoon. Would a motion sensor that activates a couple of spotlights scare them off or at least make it too hard to see into the water because of glare or is there a better way. Thank you, Scott

tadpoles by Lady Zephyr
Your Japanese beetles are only around for TWO WEEKS??? They must have come here (TN). It's my understanding that they are now mating; the grubs will begin feeding in the yard later in August (time for milky spore), and next year they'll be back. I read that four o'clocks are tasty and lethal to JB,...

fish near waterfall by gng
Should I be concerned? I have a 2500 gallon pond with water lillies and about a dozen koi (18") and a dozen goldfish. Lately I've noticed the koi are all hanging out under the waterfall. Nothing has changed - they never used to do this. They eat fine, and otherwise no issues. Is it...
