Saturday, my "yard kid" and I went over to my sister's to help her clean out her pond. She hasn't done a full clean for at least 5 years and probably closer to 6 or 7. Her pond is about 700 gallons (mine is only 180 gallons). I took some pictures of her fish while they were in their temporary holding tin. She has shubunkins and goldfish and mosquito fish and american flag fish. Also, I had sent four chinese algae eaters over to her pond over the last 5 years. All four of them have survived in her pond - even over the winter. They don't survive the winter in my pond, probably because it is a smaller body of water. Also, her pond get more direct sun than mine does. Anyway, enjoy!

A few more pictures . . .

and a few more . . .

You can see some of the chinese algae eaters in the first two pics here. Then the last three are of her pond. It is 2 feet deep... The lilies are rooted in a layer of river rock in the bottom of the pond.

I also took some videos of them...



and another . . .


and one more . . .

In this one, you can see more of the mosquito fish (the little gray ones that are actually about 2-3 inches long). You can also see the cae's swimming around the pump.
