NFC: Re: My Ponds

It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one to have problems from time to
time. <grin>
It reminds me of a problem I had in my classroom a few years ago.  Every
fish I had below about 3" disappeared slowly and one at a time.  Never say
the bodies, they just kept disappearing.  I suspected the larger fish, but
they were not particularly aggressive.
One day I was cleaning and when I removed the hood, a 2.5' "racer"jumped"
out and tried to take off .  The fluorescent fixture was full of snake crap.
Turns out that the biology teacher in the next room had lost the snake
months before -- but never thought to say anything about it.  Problem solved
with the snake, but I still would like to throttle my colleague.
