Dragonflies = problems?
I have a small goldfish pond in my backyard. It's planted in a natural style and so has been attracting all kinds of neat wildlife (well, as wild as you can get in the midst of a city). However, today I noticed a BIG dragonfly hovering around the lilypads and rushes. Eventually it landed and began depositing eggs (I think). Should I be concerned about any future larvae causing problems for the goldfish. I'm sure the goldfish are large enough (3-4 inches) not to be eaten by the "baby dragons", but is there any risk to fragile gills/eyes/fins/etc.? I have seen larval dragonflies before, so I know they are capable of capturing and killing small aquatic animals including tadpoles and tiny fish fry. I've just never had to deal with them in a small "closed" system like a backyard pond. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks. <-Steve->
