Lookin' good! I'm jealous as the Mrs. won't allow a pond in "her" garden.

Hey Matt- Where did you find that fountain? I've been looking for a small tiki fountain head. Is that just a converted tiki? or did it come with the plumbing?

BTW... they have concrete Moai at English Gardens for about $130, just incase you want to add more.

Here fishy fishy...

I bought a small Tiki on eBay and plumbed the little guy myself. I'd be glad to give you a hand with one if you'd like!


There are several frogs in the pond...mating!!! I'm gonna have a frog leg dinner here soon I think!(just kidding)

Mattfink,
Nice pond. I really enjoy Koi fish. They are very peaceful to watch except when there are thousands of them in a single pond and they start swarming for food and sticking their heads out of the water and opening and closing their mouths in famished desperation. That kind of freaks me out. We have three Koi and a goldfish in our pond, plus a frog that took up residence inside a Japanese lantern next to the water.

KG,

I don't actually have any Koi as they got eaten by a Heron last year. I could't afford to continue feeding the bird, so I've bought some Shebunkins, Fantails, Comets and some nice big Goldfish. Surprisingly, the bird hasn't eaten any of the cheap fish!!

Actually, we have hawks and herons and even a Bald Eagle that fly around our neighborhood, but they have not gobbled up our fish yet. Our pond is completely fenced and within eight feet of the roof of the house so maybe the enclosed space is keeping them out. Either that or the garden tikis are scaring them away.

Very nice pond and it's looking very tiki. I would love to have a pond one day to add to our existing tiki theme backyard and you have given me some really good ideas. Thanks for sharing.

I like the 2 level approach. Is the netting to keep out the herons?

I haven't had a problem with big birds yet, but my pond is nestled under some large evergreens, and has three large dogs gaurding the perimeter.
