    Cool! I was wondering if I should post something in the thread so you could test it. :)

    JB I love the first video of the Mallard Duck. I hope it is okay to ask a question about it here - my daughter has 3 Swedish Blue Ducks and when they got into my fish pond that absolutely attacked my goldfish. They cornered them in the shallow parts and I thought they would eat them before we could get them out. Is it the species of duck?

    Some ducks are fish eaters, some are not. Mallards eat vegetation, insects, things like that.

    Absolutely beautiful photos @JBtheExplorer ! Your pictures really showcase both your pond, the creatures that enjoy it, and all the plants you've chosen so carefully - great job!

    Thank you! I'm hopeful that may photos may encourage others to use native plants in and around their ponds.


    Appreciate it jw!

    I really appreciate it! I've been meaning to update my showcase for about a year and always put it off. Finally took the time to go through and nearly start it from scratch. Took awhile but it was well worth it. I went and updated my entire garden showcase over on the Gardening Forums too.

    Very nice looking pond @JBtheExplorer . How large are your fish? They look like they are pretty big just based on your "feeding time" video.

    Thanks!
    They aren't that big. Most in the 4"-6" range, give or take.
