New pond/koi owner questions by chereena
I was so happy to find this group and read some of your past posts. Thanks for being here!

The Survivor..........lets have a minute of silence for the poor thing! by ~Mr. McDonald~
I'm sad to report that the goldfish who survived the pond poisoning and lived for weeks in pea green soup, did not survive being transferred to a clear water pond. -- Nick. Support severely wounded and disabled Veterans and their families!

Hi group by jthread
Hello: I lost 3 Koi in my pond over the winter. Two were new from Petco and a large one that was there when we bought the house last October. We've been learning how to maintain the pond mostly through error. Right now we have about 7 gold fish that seem really healthy. The filter works well...

rec.ponds.moderated by [email protected]
If you love ponds, and your sick of the nonsense in this group, try the new rec.ponds.moderated. You will find all the old people who used to use this group, and none of the insanity that has pervaded it for all too long. I had to reload my entire list of groups to make it show up, but it seems...

drainage pond, because about two or three years ago it began to be carpeted in goldfish. It is amazing that all the US hasn't done what Maine has and outlawed the common goldfish because of this. At the Demo.Pond we often get the offerings of the fish dumpers. People dump cats & dogs, so I'm...
