August 2006, about 2 months after it was built.
Pond Volume: 100 gallons
Location of Pond: Griffith, Indiana, USA
Date Pond Was Built/Setup: May 2006
This pond contains goldfish and plants.
I started with 5 comet goldfish, of which 2 died a week or two later. I'm not sure why they died.
I still have the 3 and boy have they gotten big! They started out about 3'' long, very narrow and
thin. Now they are at least 6'' long and very thick. I feed them twice a day, and they snack on the
roots of the taro plant and water hyacinth. I think that's what it is. Both have really done great in
the pond; they've had beautiful blooms.
