New Fish

This is first because I went back in the house to get my camera and when I came back this is what I see. She was hunting for frogs when I left; for just a second or two.

I had to get new fish because I lost my Koi. A couple of weeks ago my pump for the frog spitter needed cleaning so I just unplugged it and said that would be a "tomorrow" job. Well the next morning I looked in the pond I saw the gold fish up at the surface and he just stayed there. Wondering what was going on, then I saw my Koi floating. The pump that filters through the plants had gone out. Only the gold fish made it.



He is a stout thing. When all my other fish died last year, he was the only one that made it. He survived again.
So I go shopping again. I got two little bitty Orandas. They are the little white ones with the red dot on their back. The one on the right is the male that I named Zhen Bo (which means shock wave) and the one on the left is my little female Ming Su. Don't ask how I know which is male and which is female; this is the way I assigned them. The fish below Ming Su is a Shubunkin that I haven't named.





This is another shubunkin. I have four shurbunkins and one calico fantail and two orandas and of course my great big gold fish. Although, I could only finld three of the shubunkings tonight.

Outside the fenced in area of my pond, Skylar waiting on me to come throw the Frisbee.




Chili has picked up Oscars habit of thinking they are going to catch the fish. Although, Oscar liked the big ones and Chili is just now noticing the little ones. She is probably thinking these are small and I can catch them.

Yes, a back yard pond is great for the doggies and the kiddies. :) We found a concrete goldfish pond in the back yard when we moved in 31 years ago and have kept it up and running ever since.

Great pics!
