I hope your holidays were good as well. It sounds like your mermaids have struck a chord with us ladies. Maybe we need to get a thread dedicated to mermaids?

thank you Jasmine.
I had some beautiful little goldfish babies(as in my goldies had babies) in the lily pond one year. it was so fun watching them grow and change! I think the water snakes I continually battle got them as they eventually disappeared!

Sooo jealous!
Your fancies look so healthy and vibrant!
And your ponds!
I live in chilly New York and envy such koi ponds...I'd have one already if I lived in a warmer climate! Thanks for the pictures!

Let me know if you ever open an etsy store, I'd buy one of your mermaids for my tank!

Jasmine don't be too jealous! it is cold here now and the ponds don't look like that, those are summer time pictures!!
and the goldies are gone ... dern snake!!!
I LOVE my koi!!!!! they are so cool. But I cant enjoy them much in the winter and these guys are filling the void nicely. the geophagus is such an engaging fish! and the bachir is getting more personality as it grows. the Rainbows I am really enjoying as well, they come in so many colors and fun to collect. I didn't know any of these existed until I decided to bring my outside garden/pond hobby inside!

Wow!!! Impressive pond. It's more like a swimming pool

If you make a goldfish mermaid - please post pics. I want to see.

Dogfish, the big tank sprung a leak and was replaced. the new one is 4 inches shorter, I had mixed emotions on that but in the end the shorter tank was lower than the window sill and we knew that would look better, the loss of water volume still bums me.

thanks about the ponds, they are my true passion
