Threw 50 Comets into the large pond my business cares for.

Recommended Posts

this pond is about 150x50x5' and is part of a property my business maintains. I just put 50 13 cent comets in it, with permission of course.

That pond is in Grand Rapids. I live near Kalamazoo.

So pretty! Most of those will probably end up being commons though. Either way the fish are pretty for being 'feeders'

Who is going to feed them?

They don't need feeding. That pond is a gourmet all-you-can-eat buffet.

I don't think that in a pond of this size they require any food. They probably find plenty of algae, insects, larvae, plant material and whatever else they want to gobble. I'd love to know how many gallons such a huge pond holds! :D

Within 5 years you'll have giant wild goldfishes in there. Then the pond will become mysterious. :)

This pond is for these 50 goldies the LAND OF FREEDOM.

They don't need any human interaction now. They are free as their wild Carassius Carassius ancestor.

I will look into it. The building manager gave me permission to put some koi in there as well

Hey thanks for the comments everyone! There are also turtles and a ton of frogs in this pond. Hopefully they don't eat all the fish!

They just have to survive one winter and then they will proliferate, We have a lake near here where the fish eat the frogs :yikes No one fishes there cause the frogs make the fish taste funny.
