If it was my pond I would just love all the wild life, keep only cheap fish in it and just enjoy the nature show.

Hello everyone, sorry I was MIA. I had to go out of state for work. Anyway I'm down to two ducks, two red tail hawks (no longer eating fish but ground squirrels now) one black heron (now named Dick) see pic. When he can't eat my fish, he brakes things around my house. In the pic he destroyed Jhony's canopy. I've lost 10 fish, over 2 feet long to him. However I have worked out that an rc speed boat works really well to drive everything except the fish and turtles off. I did try the fake heron, dick killed it within a day. He took the head off.

Did the heron eat some of the ducks too? :p
No, the ducks started to mate and they are not nice to one another. So the two that are left fight off the ones the boat did not scare away.

I'm going to have to do that sadly. I was trying to keep my late father in law's fish alive. However, I'm also not going to kill the wildlife just for living.
