Our Backyard Pond: Starting Over AGAIN

After building a much deeper pond so the marauding racoons wouldn't be able to catch our koi very easily, all three of them died of an unknown cause. Yep, two of them were floating, dead in the water, last Thursday night, and this surviving koi lasted an extra day but was also stiff by Friday night! After draining, cleaning, and refilling the pond as best as possible and adding water conditioner with electrolytes, I moved healthy plants from the other pools, bought a new, deep-water plant, and introduced three new fish to our water garden. Of, course, more landscaping and replanting happened - I don't think that ever stops!(Don't forget you can click on these pictures to make them bigger.)New Fish One and New Fish Two
