Threw 50 Comets into the large pond my business cares for.

I love it! I used to live on a farm and had a very large pond (not as large as the one in your photos). I always wish I would have done something like this. Strangely, we did end up with about 10 very large koi in the pond, although none of us put them in there. I am guessing someone snuck in there at some point and "rehomed" their own goldfish :laugh:

There are also turtles and a ton of frogs in this pond. Hopefully they don't eat all the fish!

The turtles and frogs wont get your goldfish. I did the same as you over 10 years ago. But with 100 feeder goldfish in a bigger pond. Your goldfish will get huge.

They just have to survive one winter and then they will proliferate, We have a lake near here where the fish eat the frogs :yikes No one fishes there cause the frogs make the fish taste funny.

:tomuch:

:yikes Heaven on earth for those little guys! And they were going to be an oscar's lunch! I can't wait to see them again (until they get bigger, you won't be seeing much of them). I'd probably sneak in a few orandas or fantails.

this pond is about 150x50x5' and is part of a property my business maintains. I just put 50 13 cent comets in it, with permission of course.

Sadly, the pond is gone. It turns out my customer owned about 1/3 of the pond and the golf course next door owned about 2/3. The golf course sold to a developer who is putting in condos, and due to the grading of the road, building, etc, the pond was drained and ceases to exist.
