    Lighting - Brands/Equipment recommendations

    WELCOME to another Michigan ponder like Brokensword said! After two sets of lights went belly up (UGH is right, @ Lisak1) cause they're all cheap junk (and they don't stay attached and float up and its super easy to cut the damn wire when you're trying to cut back the stupid pennywort, etc, etc...

    What does your pond look like ... Today?

    Hey what pond camera setup do you have? How does it work? Also, seems like a ton of fish in there! How many do you have? EDIT: never mind, just saw all the posts before this one with all the info! Thanks!

    (Sorry to hijack this thread. This is my last post on Michigan, promise!) That's where we go. Our fish are from grass roots. Sometimes to the pond place on M59 in highland. Grass roots has some new stuff this year including a butterfly house etc. They had good plants last year.

    Is every part of laburnum tree poisonous?

    I never thought of that! We have a golden locust and a "marsh" maple in the vicinity of the pond and their "stuff" definitely gets in the pond especially in spring and fall. Of course, I generally try and remove as much as I can with my net as and when I see it and we have a net over the pond...

    When to start pump & waterfall

    It's about 120 or slightly more square ft surface and yeah didn't know about the koi otherwise we'd probably have done things differently. There is one larger koi and six small ones. That is why we added the pond Max last summer. Now I'm wondering if we should add one more pond Max in series...

    When to start pump & waterfall

    Yup our pond's fully up and running also. Waterfall has biofilter (bag of bio balls, bag of sponges, three filter mats/ sheets) and because of koi we even added the pondMax 3600 external filter which is behind the arborvitae.

    So....its 70s all week and my fish (Koi and gold) are like, "feed me!"

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I've not fed them anything yet and there is tons of algae for them to eat anyways. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't harming them (especially the koi) by withholding food.

    So....its 70s all week and my fish (Koi and gold) are like, "feed me!"

    I know that I'm not supposed to feed them until the water temps are higher (50F plus?) but we're going to get there this week. None of the pond plants are even peeking out yet and I don't want to feed them until the N cycle is in motion at least. So what to do? They are munching on algae but I...
