I have been looking for a good fertilizer tablet and have seen many different formulations. Does anyone have any recommendation or preferences? I also saw one that claimed to last for the whole growing season. I wondered if any one here has tried one like that. I am in zone 6 and have lotus,...

Hi all- I have a few questions about babies. All of my fish, cept two were small when I got them (this season), including tiny feeders. So I was surprised when earlier this summer I started seeing babies. I have about 15 of various sizes. The 'two' were some chunky Shubunkins that were 5-6...

pond lifted due to rain by Tak Sze
I just recently built a 2000 gallon pond with concrete over liner. The pond has not been filled with water yet. However, the whole pond is lifted a few inches due to recent rain. Actually I am not sure if the pond is lifted or the soil on the side collapsed. If it is lifted by the water, I don't...

Distressed Goldfish by Bill Oertell
Early this morning one of our fantail goldfish was entangled in some string algae. When I fished him out of the pond, I thought he was dead until he twitched a little in the net. I put him back in the pond and tried to push him around a little to get water to flow through his gills, but he wasn't...

Tetra PF3 Question by bk
We use a Tetra PF3 cannister type filter with a 1100gph pump. The water inside the cannister is stays very high. The local fish store tells me that the water in the cannister shouldn't be so high. Anyone else use this filter?

Bubbler Socks? by Bill Stock
I noticed that my bubbler is struggling to bubble as it gets colder. I imagine it will fail, when the real cold gets here. I've seen a few of you talk about keeping your bubbler inside, but then the condensation builds up in the long airline. My bubbler only has about 16" of airline attached to it....

New pond - Fountain pipe by
Hopefully will be pouring the conc floor next w/e. But I had a brainwave yesterday, that I'm not sure about. I've plumbed in a main drain so I can empty. But I was thinking I could run a 2nd line with a socket on the end before I lay the floor conc.. Idea is to screw a vertical pipe into the...

Heron Problem by Bill Kerrell
We live within easy flight distance from the bay here in Pensacola. So we had our visits from a Great Blue Heron. We were able to scare him away several times. I covered the pond with screen. It looked terrible. So one day I am at WalMart and in the garden dept found this 12" replica of a Barn Owl....

What to do with frog by Ka30P
Ann wrote I was out this morning to look at the pond. It had a thin cover of ice on top. As I was looking down I noticed a frog on the bottom. Ann, where abouts are you in the country? Can you expect to get much ice? We usually recommend keeping a hole open in the ice as our ponds have so...

Cold Fish (Update?) by Bill Stock
Scott are you there? Just wondering how your pond faired last night with the colder temps? We had our coldest night so far (23F), which is not bad for this time of year. I'm sure it must be colder in the Ottawa valley than it is here (Mississauga). The pond bottom never got below 39F last night...

Ugh, I am a backlogged idiot by Benign Vanilla
Hey all, my apologies. I just responded like 12 times to that insanely long thread on top posting. Then I realized it was a month old. Have I been out of touch that long? Anyway, sorry to resurrect an old dead thread. BV.
