How big is that pond?? That sounds awesome! I can get sunnies from the lake down the street. Koi are pretty but I really wonder about putting them in ponds since they never seems big enough for the fish. I hear from my neighbors that have ponds that the birds in the area LOVE the ponds and they loose fish all the time.

im not sure how long it is but its pretty long. it isnt a rock garden or anything its a real pond. we have a bunch of springs in our backyard so we dug out a pond. :) it is only arounf 4-5 feet deep but in the summer we will make it deeper. it has 2 streams going into it and another coming out. the 2 that lead into it push a bunch of gravel and dirt into the pond so it has filled in a lot in the past years.

iam finding cichlids are awesome as well, my j.d. now nips at my hands and arms when i move something or vacuum the gravel! it feels wierd but he has a good little nip, i think he even pulled a hair or 2 out of my arm one day!

hes got quite a personality, he hides when my friends come over and knows when their backs are turned cause he'll come out and just stare at me!

i love em, but i do need a bigger tank (dont really have the money nor space in my bedroom), from what everyone tells me roughly a 55 gallon.

c4f, you probably had a prawn, a member of the shrimp family. They can get a little testy, much like a crayfish(freshwater lobster -- crawdads where I come from lol).

By the way folks, I have to say that I am in 7th Heaven reading what all of you are saying about my favorite family of fish. I have been keeping cichlids, religiously, for over 25 years, longer if you wish to include angel fish. I am glad that all of you find them as interesting as I have for all of these years. I can remember going to "all-species" shows and being looked down upon by keepers of killies and tetras. I should have had you guys as my back up. lol
