    I started out with a dozen. Then a dozen catfish. In November we had a strange occurance. We had lost over 400 cat and gold fish. The Forestry guy said that usually happens in the spring. It happened when we had cold weather then real hot right after and it zapped the pond of it's oxygen. I was so upset. Dan just came in and told me he saw a young goldfish jump in the pond. I must go and see if I have any pictures of my pond online!! Oh and not so good news.........I had a snake. Yuck.

    Oh heck, I'll say Yay![​IMG] I know I love my pond. We started with 3 koi, 3 fantails, and 3 Sarasas. It didn't stay that way long!

    I'm sure yours will soon have the place repopulated!

    So shall I be expecting the fried catfish in the mail? ...on second thought that probably wouldn't be a good idea would it? [​IMG]

    Quote:OOO purty fish! I had one koi but he died. I bought my goldfish at a bait barn. Then Mr. Doyle (lovely old gentleman) from down the road brought me 12 catfish fingerlings he found in a puddle and the rest is history! My husband loves to sit on the pond bank and feed the catfish.
