As you can see, its a nice
sunny day in Scotland.
The pond is 8' x 6' and 18" deep, not exactly a Koi
pond but this is Mark1, that's what I said when I built it 20
years ago (1988)!.
It houses at the moment a motley crew of 6 assorted goldfish
which includes a Sarasa Comet and a Shubunkin.
I usually get some fry that survive every year, they sometimes
go back into the pond the following summer or end up in somebody
else's tank or pond.
I have had in the past problems with cats who don't eat the fish
but just leave them on the ground as a calling card, but since
one neighbours cat has recently died from old age the problem
has diminished. (so that was the culprit!)
Accessories include a plastic duck (male
I think) which floats about the surface, a stone cat, you might
be able to see in the top picture (its supposed to scare the real
cats away!), and a garden gnome which was gifted to me by a friend
( I can't get rid of it in case he visits!)
So there you are, exciting isn't it!.
