My mom bought my sister and I each a 90 gallon garden pond. She has one in her yard that's really nice, except raccoons come by at night a steal her fish. She has a heavy net over it now, but I don't want to do that, takes away from the looks of it. I also might see about putting a small turtle in (I want a pet turtle again, but dont' want the smell indoors). Anybody have any thoughts on keeping predators away? Aside from firearms (nothing against them, just very high maintenance solution /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)?
