yea done well.

when the light burns out look at putting the lights on the wall closest to you . Shine accross the pond . This way you don't have the light in your eyes.

I ordered them from playitkoi as they were already out of season in Virginia. Apparently you have to get them in very early spring. Thanks for the heads up about the group.

Haven’t posted in awhile, but figured I’d post a small update with an Evening feeding. Pond and fish are doing well and now that we are beginning to head into fall I’m beginning to start thinking about steps to winterize the pond. I plan to leave the pump running 24/7 and have already got two nets to cover both the pond and bog from falling leaves. Hope everyone is doing well.

Really been enjoying fall fires at the pond. On a side note I finally found out what was taking my koi earlier in the year. Finally caught the culprit in the act on video, but thankfully the pond is netted so there was nothing for him to get.

Was that an owl? Uh oh looks like you will need a net! I have one over my pond otherwise all my fish would be gone. I put mine up high hooked on metal fence posts so I can get under it easy if need be. Have it hanging down on side too hooked to a short wire garden fence otherwise things come in through the side, like Mr or Mrs sneaky heron, raccoons etc. Easy to unhook and area and lift up the net and attach it to the top rope I have weaved around the net edge of the whole thing. Not as pretty w/the net but I'm not willing to lose my fish!
