If you can find a way to isolate it from the fish.
They generally don't recommend putting any plants with koi but I like both so I don't get too concerned with that. If they munch on some here and there that's the price you pay putting plants in a pond with koi. For the most part they leave them alone but do tend to eat on the roots of some of the plants. I have yet to order the L. sediodes yet but plan on trying it. I do have a few areas that I can keep most of the larger koi away from so may try placing it there.

On another note I have 6 koi less than I had last year. No bodies or signs of dead fish at all. So I would have to assume a critter has taken them from the pond. Either a neighborhood cat or raccoon. I may have to put out my live trap again and see what is roaming around in the dark. Last year I removed several possums and a raccoon.

I have been looking for some Ludwigia sediodes to put in here this summer and hopefully can find some from a member here or else I have found an online source but would rather spend my money with people here.

I know what you were saying. And I was the one using metaphors.

I was saying it tongue and cheek not taking any offense to what you said.

I don't know why they all posted like that. Few more picture of my shade garden and the bog area that collects runoff water.

I have no idea why I can't post more than one picture at a time or why it keeps flipping the pictures so that is all I will post for now.
It's the best part of the snow melt when you get to say hi to your fish! So bummed... went to start up my pump, and water started coming out of the ground next to the skimmer. Big ol hole. Got a bunch of pvc, hose clamps, and silicone. Going to be our project for today. Then in a few weeks spring cleaning time (always a fun experience haha). I always end up giving up and bringing out bleach in spray bottles for the hair algae that attacks every spring.

Do you have any issues with all the rock covering the bottom of your pond? I've always wanted to do that, but I worry about nitrate issues.
