That's a superb plant in your pond, don't think mine is big enough for it though being a 500 litre pond. sadly my fish are not faring too well, 3 died due to fin rot and the other 4 hovering in the same spot. Think I may turn it into a wildlife pond instead.

So sorry to here about your fish, i lost 3 this year, 2 i had for 8yrs but that was magpie that took them if i had not seen it myself woould not have believed it and the other died after a big thunderstorm, but have 4 fish at moment but only babies at moment, but have a little pond i keep as just wildlife, but not much wildlife go in it. :(

Hello Carol, I 'threw' one in the pond a couple of weeks ago and its kind of attached itself to a lily pad, lol. I can't reach it to move it so we'll see what happens. Your's looks lovely.
