    And I think this is it! I just left one that was mean and degrading too often, this looks like a friendly one. Glad to be part of it now. I am a long time Koi pond and indoor tropical fish keeper. We moved recently and I had to leave behind my Koi pond and fish. But now I am digging a new smaller pond that will have Shubunkins. See you all at the forum!

    Welcome, as long as you don't use algaecide we should all be able to get along :D:po_O
    Edit:
    @BarbO , I was being silly, hope it didn't come across the wrong way.

    Thank you all for the kind welcomes! No algaecides for me either. Recently I saw a local house with a new and beautiful pond in their front yard. But the water was a terrible shade of green/blue from the chems. they used. I look forward to a lot of good reading here at the friendly forum. Thanks again

    Welcome to the forums! Safe to say this is the friendliest forum I've been on, not just pond related.

    Gee, this IS indeed a friendly forum! Thanks for all the kind welcomes. When we sold old house and my pond, I gave my 6 full grown Koi to a local hospital's 150,000 gal. pond that patients receiving Chemo. look out on while getting their treatments. It is a beautiful pond with several waterfalls and fountains.
