    Greetings! I randomly stumbled upon this forum this morning. Seems like a cool place and I'm sure I'll have some questions sooner or later. I'll be looking into dye as I would like to have emerald colored water like in my avatar. I'm in Mirabel (North shore of Montreal). I just reinstalled my pump last weekend after winter storage. I've had this waterfall pond setup for a few years now.

    Welcome welcome! Your pond is beautiful! I know you didn't ask... but don't dye your pond! It's so pretty the way it is... nice and natural!

    Enchanté Miss Colleen. It is indeed. I enjoy taking power naps in my gazebo to the sound of the water. You look quite young for someone who has been ponding since 1991!

    I haven't put any fish yet as my pond is only 2 and a half feet deep(local regulations). I was told they need at least 3 feet to survive the winter? Is that true?

    Thanks! Thanks for your advice. You do bring up a good point about it being more natural without dye.

    Hi and welcome. Your yard looks very nice. If you dye your pond you won't be able to see your fish if you decide to add some. I have seen fish in ponds survive the winter in a little as 2 ft of water, but recommended is at least 4 ft.

    I like all the rock. What kind of tree is that you planted next to the pond?

    Thanks! Good point about the dye and the fish. Good to know for the 4 feet. In my province there's a regulation that any pond 3 feet or+ deep needs to have a fence around it!

    I'm not even sure lol. It's a free tree the city gave when I bought the house. I don't remember the name. I'll post a pic when the leaves are out and maybe someone can identify it.
