    Pond pics, Lots and large...you've been warned

    Even though my carnivorous plant collection is nothing spectacular to post pics of I figured others must have ponds too. As a result I could at least post some pictures of my pond and the fish and plants in it.

    I LOVE your pond! I have a pond too but it's not nearly as nice as yours! How big is your pond and how many fish do you have in there? Are those Koi? I have two very large goldfish. They're the size of a large Koi. I really like your pond and I'm jealous, lol. Thanks for sharing!
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Beware of the yellow snow!

    I only have goldfish, no Koi. Those guys are so pricey for the ones in the color patterns I like and get so big, and apparently like to trash plants so I figured goldfish are good enough for my first pond.

    I went back and labeled the pics a bit and there are now Ids as to the types of goldfish I have. I originally started with only 7 but those guys went a bit spawn crazy last spring and now I have no idea how many youngsters there are in addition to the originals. These original guys I bought are now approx 6 inches long, not counting their fin length. Yours must be huge...

    The pond is sorta an irregular dumbbell shape. The pics are only of one rounded end of it. The pond is approx 6 feet long and the widest approx 3.5 feet. It has shelves that step down approx 12-18 inches per level and the deepest point is 3-3.5 feet deep...I think. I dug this a few years ago but that sounds about right to me without jumping in with a ruler.

    Thanks for the complements..

    Very nice pond! I hope to have something like that one day. I've tried the smaller plastic ones the fit in the ground. That lasted until a hurricane came through and caused it to flood then float. I remember having to chase my little goldfish down in puddles. Any rough guesstimates on now many gallons of water it holds?

    Beautiful fish as well. We have the same taste in color choices .

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
