  1. I didn't even know my goldfish where breeding. I had a net in the tank for a filter but took it out and threw it in a bucket of water. Two weeks later today I saw a baby fry and I see eggs on the net. I'm so surprised. The water went bad so I don't know if the rest of the eggs will hatch but I took the baby out. I hope this fry grows out.

  2. Does liner thickness matters? I have a 14.5 mil thick Pond liner. Should I return this one and get a thicker one? I want to put rocks in the pond. Although there aren't any bad reviews. I feel like it's not gonna be durable. What do you guys think?

  3. I'd like to help you, but I have no idea what your pond plans are, other than it will have a liner. How big a pond do you plan (volume and dimensions)? All below ground, partially above ground, or above ground? What type of soil do you have? For example, I have pure fine sand (locally called sugar sand) in which the sides of any hole you dig will collapse. Digging a pond in peninsular FL means you must dig a hole with a much larger area then the intended pond and then build cement block walls up to (at least) ground level.

    If in-ground, are you planning a bottom drain and filter pit?

    It's gonna be 7feet by 4feet 2 feet deep. I decided just to have the liner. They seem to be gone now but hopefully they won't come back.
  4. Have you had that issue in the past?

    They borrowed under my old pond and it's made of concrete too but this time I'm doing pond liner. I googled this and people have had problems mice chewing through their ponds.
  5. I want to make a new pond. Do you think I could use concrete as a underlayer? I'm worried about mice doing damage to the liner. What do you guys do to prevent damage from mice chewing on pond liners?

  6. Welcome to Kokos! Would you introduce yourself here?

    What are the dimensions and volume of your pond? We would greatly appreciate some pond pictures.

    Since we get almost daily summer thunderstorms in FL, rainfall usually exceeds evaporation. The ponds have overflow pipes to handle the excess.

    Edit: Oops! I see you've been a member for a while. I saw your post count and assumed you were brand new.

    I don't know. My pond is ugly and unprofessional. I'll be too embarrassed to post pictures.
