Heron eating pond fish

Hello all my neighbor has a very nice pond and waterfall with some very nice coi in there. He is having difficulty with the herons eating his fish. He has tried netting, duct tape and imitation crocodiles in the water. Any other suggestions out there?

hi there
i'm surprised the netting is not sufficient,perhaps if he puts the netting up higher
for a time,(not the most nice looking) but this is what i have done,
and it seems to have worked for now.
is he sure it's a heron,and not someone stealing them ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

then i would perhaps buy a water gun(kids ones)
and squirt it with water,perhaps this will help

I had some issues a year or so back... a wind operated pin wheel was enough to scare them away... they never returned...now if I could only keep the neighborhood kids from frog hunting

Wise men speak when they have something to say...fools speak because they have to say something.
