We just planted 3 water lillies two days ago.  I found a dozen stems 
neatly snipped off and floating in the water this afternoon.   We have 
gold fish in the pound and a turtle set up housekeeping about a month 
ago.  It was my understanding that gold fish do not harm water lillies.  
Could the turtle be the culprit.  (We pulled the water lillies out of 
the pound and they are now in buckets until we can determine who/what is 
doing them in.)  Thanks.
