Hello folks,

I found the GPF after an invite from fishin4cars. Larkin lives about 5 miles from me. I turned 62 on June 17. My purpose in having ponds is tropical waterlilies. No pumps, no filters, no Koi. Koi tend to eat water lily. Built our first pond in 1991. Water lilies, live music and golf. I think most ponders understand that if it's worth doin', it's worth doin' to excess.

Thanks for allowing me to join up,

Dan McGehee

Hi Dan, Welcome. Maybe if you are in the forum long enough you might breakdown and buy a goldfish or two. They won't eat your pretty lilies!

That's right near me J.W. If he works for the walmart distribution center and like critters Global wildlife is a really cool place to check out. I check their Weather cam out here quite often and watch the Fallow deer and Stag deer come up on the hill to bed down, the giraffes come in to view once in a while, and The two Texas Long horn steers come in every now and then.. I think they have 200-300 deer, buffalo, steer, antelope, etc, etc
http://www.globalwildlife.com/ Check out the Cam! It's live, they use it on the local online weather channel here.

Thanks every one, I actually put some feeder goldfish in the ponds on Saturday. Let's see how long they last this time. I have not seen or heard bullfrogs this year.

Oh Dan, If you decide you want goldfish for a pond let me pick some out for you! Please!! I know where I can get my hands on some SUPER nice ones but I don't have the room. I hate feeders when you can have some that will stand out!

I wish I had the facility to ship, there is a breeder that I know that has some really nice goldfish, Koi not to bad but his goldfish are better quality. Some I've seen there make raingardens fish look .....well about equal for a far less cost. :)

Thanks for the link fishin and I'll check it out. Bro-in-law isn't much into critters but I sure am. His kids weren't allowed to go near any creatures and he was amazed at how interested I was in all the wildlife when we visited him. He kept saying "don't touch the turtles, they could carry a disease" and of course I had to touch the turtles :lol:

Thanks Larkin. When should I come get them or would you rather deliver them?

J.W , Wildlife & Fisheries agents pulled a 6' alligator out the drainage ditch on the side of my house last summer. A dry ditch in town. You b-i-l should be worried about the mosquitoes not the turtles.
