Starting a small pond. by Pip
Hi all, We are wanting to have a pond in our garden, only a small pond say 3 foot by 4 foot, if that. It is not for keeping fish in, but it would be nice to have either toad or frog spawn and to grow some plants in etc etc. There will be no running water feature - just still water. I realise...

Neighborhood Animals and an outdoor pond? by Ron G
Hi--- I am thinking of making an outdoor pond, including goldfish. But the neighborhood is loaded with free-running cats, plus racoons and possums. What do people with ponds do in that circumstance? Is a pond even possible, with goldfish and all?

Something is taking bites out of the goldfish by Rodney Pont
Something is taking bites out of the goldfish in the pond. Two have died and about half of the others have wounds. We've emptied the pond and repotted all of the plants. We removed all of the sludge when the pond was empty and sieved it to see if we could find anything. We've washed and inspected...

Wintering by Lily55320
My small garden pond is new this year. I have a few inexpensive goldfish, lots of Water Hyacinth, and a Water Lily. Would building a coldframe to cover it be enough to prevent significant loss? Or will it be neceessary to move plants and fish inside for the winter? Thanks much.

Algae by Lily55320
I used no chemicals in my new pond this year, not really knowing what I was doing (flying by the seat of my pants). It now has serious algae growth. Is this normal or should I use chemicals to curtail it? Lily Zone 6a
