Herons by Tom Puskar
I was just outside and saw what I believe to be a heron in one of the trees overlooking my pond. I chased it away and then checked my ponds. Four fish are missing! I don't know how long this creature has been stalking my goldfish. I know yesterday there were 6 in my upper pond and now I can...

New Pond Page by rtk
I just added an itsy bitsy teeny weeny pond to my 2 ponds. Here's the url for it. http://www.personal.psu.edu/faculty/e/x/exk7/NewestPondPage/PondPage3.html In the opening paragraph I think I spoke for many of us when I said we're not so inclined to just things be. And I didn't. Ruth Kazez

The koi & GF fry by Reel McKoi
Their rate of growth is phenomenal! They're eating every few hours. I'm now feeding them flakes, crumbled GF pellets, HBH soft-moist food and crumbled tubifex worm cubes. Any live food would be what would occur in these pools naturally. Each 150 gallon pool has an airstone going briskly now,...

Red eared southern slider :-))) by Reel McKoi
When I fed the fish this evening at sundown I saw a baby red-eared slider come swimming out of a bunch of elodea and snarf up some pellets!!! I've never seen one of these in my ponds before. Somehow it got through the net. It seemed more shy and fearful than the baby mud turtles I had...

Retro fit bottom drain by Wilmdale
Anyone have any experiences (good or bad) with the Tetra or any other vacuum bottom drain? Since I am going to do some replumbing anyway, I thought I might add a bottom drain. However, putting in a true bottom drain seems a little impractical right now as I would need to drain my pond to do it...

Keyoff current flow on 97 GMC by ~Roy~
I have a 97 GMC 1500 with factory radio / CD player. Today my battery died. Prior to this for some time now I head a noise which resembles a fan or blower running under the dash panel. So after fooling with thew alternator today, I started to lok for the noise. It was pulling current and made...

Aladdin no niche skimmer by nortyler
I am thinking of installing one of these skimmers and am wondering if they work well? I thought one of you may have one in your pond already. I am going to split the intake of a 3500 gph pump between a Tetra bottom vac and the skimmer. I am wondering if anyone has any easy method for anchoring...

Lotus by gene
My lotus was just eaten by a raccoon, and I really want to replace it. I'm in Chicago, it's probably too late, but I'm willing to try, if anyone has a reliable source that is still selling at this late date. Thanks.

water feature Remodeling by Wilmdale
Well, the extra water fall and stream are gone. I think they were leaking because since I took them out, my water loss has been MUCH less. It now takes about a week to lose 1/2 has much as I was losing in 3 days. New pictures are on page 7. Now for the landscaping of all that new dirt! Happy...

Dead Pump by Wilmdale
Well, "it" finally happened. One of my pumps died. It was Little Giant (now a big piece of junk). I am going to replace it with an external pump. Any suggestions? I am leaning toward a "Power Plus Pump". Seems to have great head and flow rate and small amp draw. This will be a new experience...

Whats destroying my Water Hawthorn & new lily ? by Negger
I've recently built a new pond, and started introducing various plants. A healthy water hawthorn plant was introduced about 6 weeks ago, and started sending up new shoots quite quickly. Patches then started appearing on the floating leaves - the leaf tissue appears to be being grazed off, leaving...

New pond plans by Derek Broughton
I'm going to be building a pond on my new deck this summer. It'll (probably) be about 8' x 3' x 3' deep. It may be a little shallower, but not much, because I really think you need that deep for lilies (I know you can grow them in less - my first was a dwarf in a tub - but you should see the...
