Re: Little Problem

Hello tilehelperdan - Sorry to hear about your heater troubles. This winter has sure been a cold one. You will want to get that other heater running as soon as possible to keep a hole in the pond to "vent" out the gases that you were able to smell. I also strongly encourage you to get an a...

Re: Decorative cover for vertical overflow pipe?

Brett - Do you have any pics of the overflow pipe that you could post on the forum or email me (jake@aquaeden.com) :?: How close is the pipe to the shoreline? Usually we like to have our overflow pipes hidden in rock work or under a natural log along the shore. Is there a way that you can re route t...

Swanberg - Your post is very interesting with some cool concepts that I have not heard of before. Your timing could not have been better either for the questions. I was just up on location at one of my customers pond in the Twin Cities area and i noticed crawfish swimming all over in the pond and in...

Re: Direct Sunlight

Hey Kent - Good advice. I too have noticed that koi will eat the roots of floating plants. One thing that has always boggled me is that the fish in my pond do NOT eat my hyacinth and lettuce. I have mostly koi with some that are around the 14 inch mark. I usually feed them well, but sometimes I get ...

Re: Direct Sunlight

Anne - Thanks for the question - Actually most aquatic plants do best in full sunlight. When yous start to look at the native habitat where most pond plants grow you notice that not many ponds and lakes have shade. As for plant recommendations it all depends on where the pond is located and if you w...

Re: Should I add salt to my Koi pond?

Kent - Good to hear from you! You still need to send me some pictures of your pond! As for Salt - Yet another ongoing debate in the watergarden world...

Re: Wintering outdoor fish

Hello - Thanks for your question. Overwintering techniques are somethign I like to study very closely. A lot of it depends on where you live.

Re: Pond placement

I received a call from a City of Owatonna Official - and at this time they do not regulate depth or size of "Garden Ponds".

Good Luck!

Re: Pond placement

Mattj - Every city has a slight difference in their backyard pond codes. Faribault has the 30" deep and 150 square foot ordinance. I have been in towns where the ordinance is as shallow as 18". Owatonna, Minnesota - From my conversations with city officials this spring (2008) they have sai...
