Let me start with my pond. It is not a large pond, just a small garden pond with a waterfall, lots of decorative rocks, some lily pads, of course too much algae and seven beautiful fish. Well, make that three beautiful fish!!! Actually, now-- three bigger, older fish and three new small additions. I'm sure you can goes the scenario. But this is a very difficult situation for a biologist, naturalist, nature lover and garden pond aficionado.

Yesterday I bought three new fish. One small koi. Two small, cheap, feeder goldfish. They have brought the population in the pond to 5 fish and lots of frogs. Not MY frogs, just frogs. Not MY fish, just fish.
I did not name the new fish!
