In any type of fish/pond keeping the only things that happen fast are bad things, PATIENCE is your friend in developing a healthy mature pond/eco system and probably the most important part of keeping aquatic life.

That is what I tell everyone to secretly cover up my true method, DNP (do nothing ponding) or LAP (lazy ass ponding)

I vote addy puts in the latter on the acronym list! She might even want to take credit for inspiring you, jhn!

Been perfecting the LAP method since I started ponds, problem I run into using this method means not taking fish out as the population grows, cause well that is not LAP like to go chasing fish around with a net.( I would fish for them with a hook and line but the ones I want to get out are too small to bite on a hook.) So then I have to make the pond bigger, which sort of goes against the LAP method, but doesn’t go against my other mantra, running heavy equipment is fun. As you can see it is a conundrum.

If she doesn’t we can just will it into existence, and still give her credit for it.
