    Hi Barb. Welcome. There are a lot of very nice people here. I think you will enjoy it. I just went the other way. After 10 years of just goldfish I recently bought two Butterfly Kois for my pond. It was a very nice thing you did by donating your fish.

    Welcome to the group. I have personally enjoyed my time here. Ponding to me should be fun and enjoyable including the forums I visit.

    Thanks again for the kind welcomes. Every month or so I go visit "my" koi at the hospital pond. They all come over to see me, but I know they are just looking for food from anyone who stands at a certain spot. But I pretend they recognize me and are saying Hi. There are several other Koi in there along with goldfish. The pond has lots of fine lines strung all over to prevent herons, which we have many of here, from snacking on valuable and beautiful fish. BTW, I raised those Koi from 3" fry I got about 17 yrs ago at a local pet store for $4 ea.

    I'm so glad you still get to see your "babies"! We do get attached, don't we?

    Be sure to take lots of pictures of your new pond build - the only thing we love more than ponds is to watch other people working! ;)
