Small Pond by K30a
PS... Well, actually their noses are in their nether hind quarters so it is really their tails that are at the surface and they are not really noses but gills..... Anyway, heck of a way to process oxygen. k30a

Anyone recommend (or not) Cal pumps by Chrome!Hat
Hi, I'm thinking of ordering a Cal pump. The price seems right, but then I wonder about the quality. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about them? I'm looking for a submerged 1200+ gph pump. If anyone has suggestions that won't trash my bank account, I'd be happy to listen. Thanks in...

Shareholders Pond VF Solution by BenignVanilla
OK, so most of you know that I have had a big problem with my VF in that I didn't realize it was so far above ground when I dug it, so now I have a significant amount of liner showing on one end. I had planned to dig it down, but I have existing landscaping in place that would make that difficult...

sonic device work? by K30a
I would not use a sonic device. Even if they did work. I always worry about overkill and the possibility that some poor dog will be getting the 'effects' and not be able to get away (like the poor dog on our street sentenced to live in a tiny concrete run). k30a

Hey Judy, Thanks for the kind words. I have a submerged pump in the middle of the pond (Oasis Optimax 15000), pipe going up over the rim and then under the ground again. Picture 1 is where you should see the pipe come up, only thing is you don't ;-) (That's the hole idea right...) I had to...

Koi waving tail by David
I have a Koi that has just started waving its tail out of the water. At first we thought it was digging in a plant pot and the tail just happened to be at the surface, out of the water. However, today, we took a closer look and there isn't a pot!! Has anyone else seen this?
