So unsporting. I was once in Pakistan and a retired colonel with a massive moustache invited me to go duck shooting. I declined of course but out of politeness asked what kind of guns they used and whether you needed to be a crack shot. "Oh no..." he replied, "we just punt up to a big flock and blast away with shotguns. You can't fail!"
I wasnt killing the fish. They have all gone to a nice and bigger pond ^_^

I need a good belt, mine's a bit knackered, can you reach in and get me one?
I did not say belt, I said belt.
 
Sorting the pond out meant pulling the pump out & back several times.
In doing so I must have damaged a seal?
The first I realised was when I put my hand in the water and got a good belt.
Tried the opposite end (10 feet away) and yep, got a lesser belt.
I expected the fish to be floating but they seem oblivious.
I know nothing about electrics but wonder if its because I was earthed whereas they are suspended in the water.
They were in a safe plaice.
 
It's that cheap electricity you buy.
It has potential.
