re: leeches

For what it's worth, Derek, I have had leeches in my koi pond for a 
while now.  They also came in on plants, but I am pretty sure that 
mine were housed in the soil of a potted plant, not just hanging onto 
the leaves.

I worried about them for a while, but even after spending hours 
standing in the pond while cleaning it, I have never had one attach to 
me.  Mostly, I find them in the filter, where I assume they are eating 
the "goodies" that collect there.

I don't know if yours are the same type as mine, but I no longer worry 
about them attacking me.
