Hi all. I'm an Aussie pond owner, having inherited one a couple of years ago. Keeping goldies (comets, shubunkins) and koi.

Looking forward to learning more from people with all the experience here! Unfortunately been having some difficulty with the pond this year and could sure learn a thing or two.

Btw, have you ever TRIED ham and pineapple on pizza? Serious ask. I grew up with pepperoni and cheese, so was a bit of a surprise to me too (that I actually liked it).

You know, I do love pizza. All pizza.
I know it's divisive but my partner is a big fan of pineapple on pizza, so I have learned to appreciate it all! :D
I've started a thread with some details about the pond too.

Edit: pineapple with ham on pizza is quite divisive in Aus also. For some reason, it's called "Hawaiin pizza" here. It has its strong advocates. That being said, I once worked in a restaurant and the owner outright refused to even have pineapple on hand to make the stuff...
:)

welcome and remeber learn from our success and failures also . I know I learned from my mistakes . like never leave water pump up and spitting out water with 5 foot long koi in the pond to knock it side ways and almost during the pond and sudden snow storm that was not supposed to hit here . Be prepared My son came up with a great idea he put all my pond outlets on switch's in my master bedroom closet so I can turn on or turn off things in my pond . He did not think of it when he put my first outlets in for the pond but he changed that also . He reminded me I am not getting any younger LOL geeze news to me
