For some reason, the waterweed in my pond really attracts the goldfish – they are killing it by eating! Why this particular weed is so popular, I don’t know. I don’t even know what its name is. Here’s a picture of it, so if anyone knows, please let me know in the comment section.
Could it be elodia? I wonder if there is any way to stop the fish eating it? Fortunately, I have another small pond with no fish, so the weed can be grown there and added to the other pond as necessary.
Unfortunately, when the fish breed, there will be no cover left for the fry to take cover in, and goldfish are cannibalistic to their eggs and young. Perhaps the answer is get some thick plastic weed.
