    November Photo of the Month

    Okay, I'll play. It was so hard to choose a picture for this contest - I have a camera set up at my dining room window for the sole purpose of taking pictures of the wild birds in the yard. We have a very natural looking small trout pond (roughly 20 x 15 feet and 5 feet is the deepest hole)...

    Need info on feeding koi and goldfish in winter, please.

    We tried one of those pond de icers many years ago, on our trout pond, and it just couldn't really keep up with all the ice and our cold winters. They are extremely expensive to run 24 hours a day for 6 months too. As I mentioned before, I think, on our big pond, we have a box that is attached...

    I'm so sorry everyone - I never received notifications of any of your posts! I was getting them before but not the most recent ones. Weird. Anyway ... I'm new to this koi/goldfish type pond type idea so there are obviously a lot of things I don't know, but what you say makes a lot of sense to...

    This will give you an idea of our pond. I just took the shots today and the shadows from the sun don't do it justice. As I mentioned before, it is about 20 x 15 feet and the large area under the bridge is 5 feet deep while the shallows to the right are a gradual slope into the deeper water...

    Our winters are quite long, Sissy. The pond will ice up sometime in November and won't ice off until mid to late April. But, even in September we get nights that are below freezing, as well as in the spring, in May and June. Our regular pond, which contains the trout, never gets depleted of...

    Need info on feeding koi and goldfish in winter, please.

    Yes, and this is why I question everything I was told about koi and goldfish these past few weeks, re winter and feeding. Every now and then you hear about koi and goldfish being released into our BC Interior lakes (you hear of more instances in the coastal regions) and how they multiply and...

    Need info on feeding koi and goldfish in winter, please.

    Yes, I know that Ruben, as I posted. I was looking for a little more information but thank you. :-) That's very interesting information, Meyer, and it makes perfect sense to me. Trout have been second nature to me for many years, but I'm on a learning curve with koi and goldfish. Thanks so...

    Need info on feeding koi and goldfish in winter, please.

    We live in Logan Lake, BC - up in the hills from Kamloops. We can get very cold winters (sometimes as cold as the minus 30's Celcius) but our rainbow trout have always fared well in our pond which is roughly 20 x 15 feet and 5 feet in depth at the deepest spot. Everyone said it couldn't be...
