    Welcome!
    If you still have those plecostamus, they need to come out of the pond and be in an inside heated aquarium. They won't survive for very long at water temperatures below 60F.

    thanks mitch. i decided to keep the plecos inside and haven't put them in the pond. i had read that they wouldn't survive
    the winter, but didn't know even below 60 is dangerous. mine are common plecos i believe. they seem like a poor choice
    for most people and i imagine most meet an untimely end. mine are 11" and 9" long currently in a 30 gallon tank soon to be in
    a 50 gallon after i make a new home for the 2 bearded dragons my previous housemate also left. and then what, a 200 gallon tank
    when they are reaching 2 feet long? aargghhh!
    and why are there lizards from central australia in my home? i live in michigan.
    i would prefer to go to australia to see dragons. or westeros before it burns.
    still, they are way cool and i've become rather fond of them.

    it's a smile, there is one individual that uses the bridge far more than anyone else here.
    that would be marva, the smaller female goat. it's the only way she will cross the stream.

    finally managed to get a pond dug. instead of digging the existing shallow pond, we dug a new hole to 6 feet and connected it
    to the old pond which will now be a bog. [​IMG]

    we were lucky. we waited a month for the excavator to never show up. if he had, the 2nd pond wouldn't of happened.
    the idea came to us the day before the rented excavatort came because i called a friend and asked for his help and we
    started throwing ideas around. it worked better than imagined. funny....

    Sometimes it is best when the plans get messed up and you rethink!

    we're tickled to about it. with just a little angle away from the old pond with the new pond, a nice peninsula
    was created. it will be fun to landscape.
