I keep a few spotted and red ears in a pond out side, all this rain ive had to pump off water a few times. Had to do the same for the koi pond also. Got soaked to the bone doing it. Anyone else have that fun today?

I love ponds and aquascaping (if that word can be used for ponds). I dug and made a sweet little pond for mothers day a few years back. Her koi or goldfish are breeding, turtles seem to have stumbled upon it and man, the frog population is crazy... and it's right outside of their bedroom window, heheh.

LOL @ Nick. I like little ponds... my grandparents in Florida have a few in their yard. a small one in the front with koi and then a bigger one in the back with koi and other weird fish and frogs and turtles... it's pretty cool. They also have chickens & roosters and a crap load of cats and birds and other weird stuff and one dog.. the neighbors have pigs and cows. lol.

Ohhh no the crawfish are long gone by now... heck it's more than likely all overgrown by now this was 7-9 years ago.. it was well maintained for about 4 years after it was done but after that everyone's been so busy ( Grandma's still working smfh LoL ) She's a busy and important person in her company heck she's always had and held important postions in any job she's had...

Yea it was sweet of me... so was the fact she was paying me LoL worked for both of us... she needed work done and I needed summer funds...
