    I also have a pond with comets only.I have kept this pond for the last 5 years, and it stays open in winter.

    To answer your questions, it would help to know the size of your pond, équipement, and so on.

    Add fish slowly, not a ton at a time. Keep bioload low. Feed moderately.

    I think additives for comet ponds are a waste of money. Make sure your pond is shaded or you may battle with green water and extreme temperatures…….at least here in Montreal.

    Soory I do not have pics.

    My pond is about 40 feet long, but most of it is like a creek about 12-18 inches wide. The main pond in itself is about 6 feet long and 3-4 feet wide.

    just having some probs with my camera program...i'll have some pics up monday

    as for plants, any i should get or stay away from?

    as for details... its about 400 gallons, no filter or uv light (however this is my next purchase) just a sprinkler head.

    im planing to add a homemade filter box and uv-light next spring. i used a rubber liner and placed some larger rock in the pond and lined it with pea-stone
