Re: Blagdon Affinity Feature Pools #43
Thanks for the info

Unless someone posts findings, will have a browse when I pop in Sainsburys

Can see from the article on PFK site that there is a section titled 'Ideal for Fish', but what sort ? thought it was too small for Goldies.

Re: Blagdon Affinity Feature Pools #44
Drat ! went to Sainsburys yesterday and totally forgot PFK mag grrr !

Psymongreen I know you have been on the naughty step lately but could you please give me an idea of how they rated it.

I will be going shopping again probably tomorrow, but knowing the way my brain works these days I am highly confident that I will forget it again

Re: Blagdon Affinity Feature Pools #45
Me? On the naughty step? Never



Funny you should ask - I actually have the issue on my desk at the moment

I did drop the chap from Blagdon a PM, but didn't get a response. Oh well.

PFk were happy that you could keep goldfish in this but don't mention stocking levels.

...importantly for the PFK reader, you can sensibly keep fish in them.

In their example they suggested 2 common goldfish or 2 comets to start.

The last paragraph reads:

So what's the catch? Genuinely, there isn't one. I was a bit dubious about the windows at first, yet once set up you get a view of your pond and its wildlife that you wouldn't otherwise have, so I liked that too. Happy days!


Does that redeem me??

Re: Blagdon Affinity Feature Pools #47
Thanks for that

Hmm, surprised at that as I don't think they look particularly generous width wise etc (and I see it set up every week at my lfs). Will get a copy and read full article when I remember

Glad you are off the naughty step psymon

Won't bother with a pm to the Blagdon chap !
