    We lost one koi to illness/ulcer a little while ago and I think we managed to save this guy! He had 2 small ulcers and we treated him with iodine after using formalin/malachite green. He was touch and go, but looks really happy now.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. It's hard when we lose them.

    Looks good. I really love the fly trap.

    Nice pond sorry for your loss however this guy looks healthy enough .
    I love the venus fly trap I take it they like it outside where you are , do you bring them in at all or do they overwinter well in your garden ?

    I don't think the flytrap will over winter well, but I'm going to give it a try... Even though I'm in Canada, I'm in one of the most temperate climates we have. Snow never stays on the ground and rarely does anything freeze over.

    Do those Flytrap plants actually come from Venus?
    If so, then I doubt they could survive even mild Canadian winters because it's very hot on Venus.

    I left all my venus fly traps and other pitcher plants outside all year round and the venus fly traps came back after I thought they died. Mine are in little fish bowl and it got frozen solid very often last winter.


    Beautiful pond :)
