      Hi Addy1. Do you have a list of plants that should not be placed in the pond or waterfall? I'm new to the forum and searched for one but may just not know yet what I'm doing. Thank you for your help.

      Hi Addy. Where do you get your pond supplies in Frederick? I have been going to the local guy in Gettysburg, but the past 3 times I've been there he's been a jerk to me. I try to support the local guy, but not if he's going to treat me poorly. I need a new liner and I'm looking for someplace to go since shipping would be ridiculously expensive.

      Hey, Addy, I did a stupid thing couple of days ago. I added about 10 bags of pea gravel to the new part of the bog, and didn't take the time to rinse it. Just dumped it in. I knew the water would be cloudy, but assumed after a day, it would be back to where it was before. Well, it's not. :-( It had gotten where I could see the fish at the bottom, although still not "clear", but now I can only see down maybe 2', and then it's cloudy. Not dusty cloudy like the brown dirt, but dark cloudy. Any idea or do I just need to be more patient? I've never vacuumed the bottom yet, do you think that would help? Maybe the koi are keeping the bottom stirred up? Thanks!

      hello addy, i have posted a new youtube video of my waterfall as it comes along, and I mention you in my video, as I have used your design I think, using small pea rocks, just slightly bigger in my water sorta of like a bog for my waterfall, and I was wondering if you could give feed back, thanks.

      you've gotta excuse the choppyness, and the darkness, I was recording at night after a big day of hard work, as I feel tormarrow I will be too weak to do anything to it.

      Hi there
      I was reading about some of what you are doing and am very curious...
      I am in the midst of designing a fish pond and would like to make it so that it is self sustaining with local wetland plants etc. But I am not finding any information about what fish could be good for that. I read that Koi are not that great - do you have any suggestions for me, where to find that info?
      Thanks,
      Ora

      hello, I need help, and advice, on my pond I am putting a much smaller kinda of stream, but it will be straight, and I need advice of what size rocks to use, and how to assemble it correctly, like what size rocks to hold it down orginally, and how to go about getting rid of folds

      Hi Addy1, I saw your comment about a max of 5 images per post - you should be able to upload more (max of 20), but you need to do it in batches. If it comes up with an error if you try to upload more than 5, just let me know and I'll see what the problem is :).

      The ones that made the winter are the Sarracenia variety, no clue of which one, but they are reddish.
