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...

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...

cement waterfall by Hank Pagel
You can use coatings made for concrete swimming pools. I do know that even though it looks and feels dry concrete takes a long time to cure. I am not sure what effect it would have on PH but the new concrete will leach lime into the water for some time unless sealed. If you decide to try it without...
