    Has anyone seen any good goldfish caves out there for ponds. Winter kills many of my plants and I would to add mire caves for the fish. My pond is 2" (yes I know its too shallow but the plans to make it deeper are delayed to spring).

    I assume you meant 2'. Why do you want caves? Predator protection?

    Sorry yes 2'. Not for predator protection, just for the fish to find a hiding place other than plants. Lotsa of those already.

    Most goldfish don't have much interest in a hiding place although many enjoy exploring them. Sick or injured fish will seek these out and die out of your sight. A six inch diameter sewer pipe makes a good hiding place if you really want one.
