My 30+ Year Pond Experience

Growing up, I had this thing for fish. I remember back in the late 1980s', getting my hands dirty with my parents' pond filters. That pond, with its cool rockery stones around the sides, was the real deal. Over time, I was always the one running to feed the fish, wrestling with the blanket weed, and trying to outsmart that pesky duck weed...I was hooked.

It wasn't just me, though. I'd see my Dad knee-deep in the pond, scrubbing his pond liner and cleaning his filter sponges, while my Mam had this special thing where she'd teach her favorite Koi to eat right from her hands. Those were the days.

All those lessons from back then? I still use them, especially with my new above-ground sleeper pond.

Fish care and keeping the water just right might seem tricky, but honestly, once you get the hang of it, it's like riding a bike.
