My pond, I'll get a better picture soon but I cropped tools and weed debris to make it more picturesque. It's roughly heart shaped, ten feet around and four deep, bisected by a foot bridge. Those are feeder goldfish purchased about a year ago and now three to four inches. The plants were a gift and I don't know what they are. I've had goldfish get up to eight inches or so until a heron takes notice and cleans them out.

I'm putting in a pondless waterfall soon. Unfortunately, my daughter and her husband are terrified that a pond, even a 2 foot deep one, will life threatening. Any recommendations you might have based on your experience would be appreciated.

Small kids or something?


Little happy fishies! Fish are our friends smile001.gif can you put a screen or chicken wire over the pond to keep the herons out?

I've been trying to get some scrap gillnet from a local fisherman, I think if it tangles in their feet they'll stay away. I think if it's completely full it's too deep to wade.


That is really beautiful, bet it's so relaxing just to watch the fish all day.

Nice pond. Bad heron.

I had a great blue heron punch a hole right through the thin pond liner I had on one of my first pond projects, I couldn't understand why I kept losing water until I was watching him early one morning, came out and checked after he flew off and sure enough there was a puncture hole where he had speared the fish. I found numerous holes when I drained the pond completely to patch the hole.

Beautiful1 At least the Heron's will prevent having to deal with this scenario ?

Nice! Mine is a lot smaller, and some of my fish are 12 years old!
