Hi all! I just thought I would introduce myself and say that I love the
of starting up a pond in my backyard sometime. Seems like goldfish would
good enough fish for it and am wondering if the pond would need to be
protected with a wire fence to keep out predators like raccoons, birds,

## If we didn't net our ponds we wouldn't have one fish left. Also, even
without fish the raccoons and neighborhood dogs would quickly have the
plants trashed.

I like the idea of using a carpet or astroturf like material beneath
the liner to maximize liner life. How long do liners usually last?

## The one we have is guaranteed by Tetra for 20 years. Check and see
before you buy.

outdoors can be a very hostile place, I know that some plastics will
disintegrate in the hot sun or water conditions.

## The liners we have are UV stabilized. Since most of the liner is covered
with either water or rocks they should last a long time.

I'd love to set up a long
channel of rocks,etc. that the pumped water could flow through and get
oxygenated by. I heard that there are a lot of trolls here, if there are
then they should go away because I could really use this group for
assistance. Later all!

## There is no way to get rid of rude people and trolls. Just ignore or
killfile them. And beware, as one is IMPERSONATING legitimate posters here,
usually myself.

Make sure of which Reel McKoi you're replying to - the TROLL from
alt.religion.jehovahs-witn is using other people's names to bypass
killfiles. There are now TWO Reel McKoi's posting here.
