Today we cleaned the upper pond by draining it down and washing the liner. We also dead-head lilies and fertilized them. I would see him/her from time but only glimpses because it would dart back into the lilies.
I took this photo of a Chinese hi-fin banded shark that I put in my pond back in March. He/she was 7 inches then and today measured 10-1/2 inches. They are only supposed to grow 1 to 2 inches a year.
Tomorrow we will be doing the middle pond and I know the "shark" there is even bigger. I am anxious to see how much he/she grew since March
