    WATER BUBBLES for my dragon

    yes, I've been looking at these; just wasn't sure about size. Using 3 outlets and getting a reasonable flow is something to consider, but as I only want some bubbles it might work.

    Koi Pool Close Down

    Looks lovely. Seeing this thread had given me the final push to re-home our Koi and fill in the pond. I inherited it from the previous owner but just do not have the time or money to do it justice!

    Goldfish in a nature pond

    Welcome to GC, a nature or wildlife pond should never have fish in it, they will eat spawn, tadpoles and newt eggs. You need to remove all of them if you can.
