Garden Pond

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

My mom used to have a huge pond. At first she bought Koi (not Cheap) After loosing them all to racoons and birds, she went to the goldfish. Less costly to replace.
Pit Bulls know they are THE face of extinction. All that remains is where they make their final stand. Say NO to BSL!

Koi are also not as hardy as goldfish are.

The Bullfrogs may eat your fish as well :(

I Bullfrogs can poison a dog if eaten, is that true?!

I am pretty sure Purple has eaten frogs, I know she tortures them to death when given the chance. A bull frog, though, I really don't know!

I used to have a good sized (10' x 20') pond with koi... never had a problem with coons, but once the blue heron discovered it...

he was beautiful... but once you see him eating koi and goldfish over a foot long you have grown and had breed for years... I could think of alot of names for him.

Now I will only keep pretty goldfish, at least they are cheaper and breed easier. I have also found that with hatching several lots of goldfish eggs and growing the babies inside (to increase survivability) that waters oxygen content and temperature (colder) can greatly increase growth rate.

My new pond is only about 8'x12'. Its not done yet. I really originally put my ponds in for the dogs... the fish are on their own. But since the dogs never got the fish, the heron was a bit much... especially when the fish are 6 and 8 years old.

That'd be a tough one for me because I love the Koi, but Blue Heron are wicked cool.
