    I wander thru there at least 3 times a week just to look at the fishies. They see me and I can just hear them, holy smokes, here he is again.
    They are the ones having the 30% off everything in the store. I'm only able to venture in because my daily commute is from Lake Stevens to Redmond to Renton and then back.

    I think pond stores and nurseries put those fish in there to draw us in and it works. Some supply food for you to purchase to feed them. What a way to not have to pay for fish food for them! I love to watch them at the nursery over at the Plant Farm in Smokey Point.
    Enjoy your trip over there and hope you find some good deals. It's quite a long trip over there from here but one of these days I'll get over there even if it's just to look the place over.

    Never heard of Falling Water Gardens. Is it over by you? The Plant Farm is just a a plant nursery that just happens to have a fish pond w/ koi and goldfish in it. They don't sell any ponding supplies or fish. I just love looking at them. We have a pond supply place up by us near Mt Vernon. I bought some tubing and other things from them. It's not a huge place or anything tho. Nice pond set up out there to view. They do a lot of installation of water features. http://www.waterfallpondsupply.com/

    Falling water gardens is in Monroe. Ah ha, I had them bookmarked as Flow Ranger. That's where I got my liner. A bit of a drive but the best price I could find.

    I'm looking right now to see if there is anything I will order today before the free shipping ends at midnight. Leaning towards the Iguana for sure! Maybe the Parrot in the ring and the segmented floating gator. Gosh there are a lot of neat ones!
