>Should you plant the tank? Yes, they like to hide out. As to sand, whatever you like they'll like.

Thanks for your local knowledge (and everybody else's comment also!)

What should I plant it with? Today there was only algae at the pond and lot of red stemmed plants with no leaves. If I recall, last summer there was a lot of red leafed plants, presumably these stems would grow into plants! :-) I didn't see any fish at all from the shore and there were 3 kids fishing, no bites, but their dad did say he has taken sunfish from there before.

Saw 3 HUGE, must have been foot and a half carp/koi/goldfish under the foot bridge near Alewife Station.
