Things I have found in my pond.

I've been cleaning my container pond today. Stinkies were minimal, plants were well beyond abundant, and mollies have returned home safe, minimal casualties, and a few babies.

However, I found a plecostomus.

I'm pretty sure I never put a plecostomus in there. Where you come from plecostomus. Have you ever torn a tank down and found a scaly beast staring at you all GOAWAY. PUT THE WATER BACK. >O

But... I didn't put it there?


Once a found a dead fish. Dunno what it was, but it wasn't anything I had in there. I found a bunch of LED lights today. Last time I found broken CD parts. I also found some strange red pebbles.

What have you guys found?

Yes a bunch of times. Mostly cellar dwellers though like khoolie laches, an upside down catfish and a bumblebee catfish. Thought they been dead for a year but when I moved found they were very much alive.

Maybe a neighbor just dumped him in? Decided he was too big for the tank.

Ooh! Free pleco! What kind is it?

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

Don't have a pond, but I found a 6" sunfish in one of the birdbaths at my parent's house. The nearest body of water is about 2 miles away.

Funny things happen.

This is right up there with those "Raining Frogs" scenes out of the Magnolia movie.....

Probably you've got a neighbor tossing stuff in your pond!

We built a pond in an apartment complex so as expected things have happened. A few of the more recent ones are a 5" Goldfish that someone just put in there one day. Before that I found a random floater (a feeder goldfish). and just before that, just as with Rich, someone put a 5" sunfish in the pond.
