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!

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...

Some folks believe anythng like JanJ by ~Windsong~[_2_]
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...
