What I have learned from the forum so far is that GBBUDD loves instagram, Addy1 thinks every pond should have a bottom drain, Lisak1 the more fish the better especially koi, combatwombat would never, ever use a bigger pipe than the outlet size, bagsmom loves working in clay, and everyone loves exactly the same size stones around a perfectly round pond, so I think I am in good shape for my project;)

You're a quick study!

I spotted my first two baby goldfish today! They are probably about 3/4" long. One is white and orange and the other one is -- strange. I am guessing that someone actually raising fish would cull this guy. When he swims, he kind of goes in a spiral upwards and then sinks down. I did a water test and everything is good. All the other fish are good. My guess is some kind of birth defect, maybe? He was in the intake bay and I tried to catch him but had no luck. It is amazing how difficult it is to catch a fish, especially in a decent sized pond.

Those DANGED DEER!
I can't wait to get the trail cam up and running to see how these deer are getting in to cause trouble. The fishing line "deterrent" seems completely undisturbed. The rocks all look undisturbed as well. I don't see signs that they are jumping in.
Lilies have been munched to nothing again.
I think these deer have wings.
