Tucked in the fish for the winter
I cut back the plants around the pond and made sure I got as much of the leaf litter out as I could.
I have the winter pre-filter set up and turned off the skippy filter and stream; just the tube sticking up from the pump now.
It always looks so sad in fall!!! I will put the bubbler in next weekend and do the final clean out. Then say "bye-bye" for the winter.
My one orange comet died this year so I am left with just 4 black fish, which I can't see unless the sun is shining on them. I will get something more colorful in the spring.
