    Good morning,
    I am new to the forum. Been ponding for several years now. Started with just a little puddle and one carnival gold fish. When he survived the first winter my daughter dubbed him "Miracle Fish" and we were hooked. My LAST expansion I made the mistake of doing it while my husband had his backhoe nearby. Now my liner is about 20' by 18' and about 32" deep. We now have 22 fairly large gold fish and every year we have about 20 babies that we have found new homes. I'm looking forward to learning SO much for all these experienced posters.

    I would love to do that - just not sure how. I saved a few to media - but now I don't know what to do with them.

    Welcome and yep once you start a pond it just takes over you .I had a big fountain concrete pond at my house in NJ and son and his friends won fish at the carnival and yep they survived even through blizzards

    There is a button at the bottom of your dialog box that says 'upload a file' - you can then select a picture and post it in the thread.
