I have a 125-gallon pond with Red Comets. Leaves from my neighbor's trees fall into the water and almost immediately begin giving off tannic acid, which tints the water brown. Is there any cure for this? Any advice will be appreciated.
Reply. Hello Dave. There are two ways to deal with this problem. Get a net with a long enough handle and use that net to remove the leaves each day, before they affect the water.

Another method is to build a light structure over your pond and cover that structure with lath or with netting.

The leaves can be sprayed off the structure with a high pressure stream of water from a garden hose with a nozzle.

I read your section on keeping goldfish. In it you said that your regular goldfish might not be happy at all being kept with comets or koi. The article didn't however, explain why. I have a comet in my tank of goldfish and would like to know what that comment means.
Thank you.
Reply. Hello Joy. Thank you for your question. In my mind there are three Groups of Goldfish.
Red and White Pond Comets at   Group 1
Pond Comets which have so-called comet-tails with two lobes on their tails that are arranged with one lobe above the other. We sell Pond Comets like the one shown to the left at our website. Click here for more information about the Goldfish in this Group.
Red and White Oranda taken at Group 2
Fancy Goldfish with two lobes on their tail fins that are arranged horizontally with one lobe to the left and the other to the right of the fish. This Group includes Fantails, Black Moors, and Orandas, Click here for more about these Goldfish.
Red and White Ranchu taken at Group 3
Very Fancy Goldfish, like the Red and White Ranchu shown to the left, plus Lionheads, Bubble Eyes, and Celestials have very limited swimming ability. We do not have more information about this Group on our website.
Bubble Eye Fancy Goldfish. Picture by   This is a Bubble Eye.
Goldfish, which is also a member of Group 3. The bubbles, which are under the eyes, are actually enlarged tear ducts. Bubble Eyes will usually be nipped by the Goldfish in Group 1 and Group 2.
The Goldfish in Group 1 swim faster than fish in Groups 2 and 3, eat most of the food and will usually nip on fish in Groups 2 and 3.
The fish in Group 2 swim much faster than fish in Group 3, eat most of the food and usually nip on fish in Group 3.
So Goldfish from Groups 1, 2, and 3 should each be kept separately with Goldfish in their own Group and not be mixed with Goldfish from the other two Groups.
For example, keep the various types of Goldfish in Group 2 together but do not mix them with Goldfish from Group 1 or with Goldfish from Group 3.
All of the Goldfish in these three Groups are the same fish species, Carassius auratus, and could possibly interbreed.
Koi are a different fish species, Cyprinus carpio, and will certainly grow too big, swim too fast, eat all the food, and nip on all the types of Goldfish in Groups 2 and 3. But sometimes Koi and Goldfish from Group 1 get along for a while, but not always.
