Based on her well-traveled pond web site, which according to one fan, "blows away any other site I have been to about ponds," this book answers all those pond-keeping questions not answered by traditional books. Almost every conceivable pond topic is covered. It covers hundreds of species of plants and animals in depth. Robyn provides details on goldfish, koi, orfe, rosy red minnows, frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, snails, shrimp, aquatic insects, and dozens of other animals. She provides help for problems relating to algae, aquatic plant care, mosquitoes, herons, and much more. Each topic includes scientific information as well as personal stories on Robyn’s experiences. This book is part short stories, part journal, part reference, and part fun. Readers can learn where to obtain multiple free catalogs; where to purchase various supplies, animals, and plants; where to search for pond information; and how to deal with everything from a leaking liner to a fish-eating raccoon. The book concentrates on natural, organic methods of establishing a crystal-clear pond full of colorful plants and healthy fish, frogs, and other animals.
