Default questions, questions, questions...

I have several questions.
1. I have heard mention that I can "google up" past posts. How would I do
this?

2. I have tree roots coming thru my liner. The pond doesn't seem to be losing
water. Is it safe to wait for fall cleanup to repair this, or should I go
ahead and drain and fix? The area in question is on the bottom of the pond, so
I would have to completely drain. When I do this, I plan to lay old carpet
under the liner for added protection.

3. I am going to look at some koi (supposed to be about 2 lbs. ea.) in a few
hours. I have never owned koi and don't know much about them. Any suggestions
on what to look for, what questions to ask? Should I quarantine them before
adding to my pond? Will they eat my 3-7" goldfish? Will they eat the babies?
Any good sites for learning?

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...

easiest way is to go to www.dejanews.com

choose "rec.ponds"(or not,, this will search ALL groups) & type in search
for the words you want.

It sounds like you have too many things going on at once.
Suggest you decide on one course of action and follow thru
until it is completed... i.e. fixing the tree roots problem.
Then I would suggest you do some research on Koi and
their needs before you decide on taking on this demanding
hobby.

How big is your pond? How many gallons of water?
We have some rules of thumb .. which are just that...
Suggest you have 1,000 gallons of water for the 1st Koi
and a 100 gallons for subsequent koi...

These answers will determine how many koi your pond will
support.

Good Luck!

to google type in www.google.com
click on groups
click on rec
go to second page and click on rec.ponds
then follow the search options such as
search only in rec.ponds

I agree with Nedra. You don't want a pond with koi in it and then, all of a
sudden, the tree root problem goes south and you've got an empty pond with fish
out of water.

click on search only in rec.ponds and then type in subject or author.

wait for fall cleanup and if you got roots I would use some aluminum flashing under
the liner... then some carpet padding (I dont like old carpets, they rot).
yes. here are links what to look for in healthy GF (koi are much the same), and the
quarantine procedures.
