We know that some fish and koi can be destructive to floating plants. These wonderful floating nets will not only confine your floating plants, but act as a natural filter and provides a protective barrier from fish or koi. Whether you are using these floating devices to confine your aquatics or prevent fish from destroying them, you will be very pleased. They are made of durable black poly netting and are two feet wide.

  1. KEEPS PLANTS SAFE FROM FISH: This Fish Barrier / Floating Flora Island Plant Protector safeguards all parts of your pond plants. Its mesh net prevents the plants' submerged stems and roots from becoming food for koi and other fish. Because its top ring floats, the protector also prevents the plants' emergent leaves from being nibbled by fish at the water surface. Slip the netting over a pond planter for full protection of tender emergent stalks and roots.
  2. IDEAL SIZE AND COLOR: Measuring 24 inches in diameter at its top, this round, floating protector has room for one or more plants. It can protect water hyacinth, water lilies, lotus and other plant varieties. The plant protector's black color reduces its visibility on water. It allows the focus to remain on your beautiful plants.
  3. CAN CONFINE PLANTS TO A CERTAIN AREA: In addition to holding aquatic plants, this protector can be used to keep the plants in a specific part of the pond. Simply anchor or tie the protector to the pond bottom or bank. (Anchor and tie are not provided.)
  4. REDUCES POND CLEAN-UP: Because its net basket holds an entire plant, this fish barrier / plant protector keeps the plant's old, lost leaves from floating throughout the water garden. That feature reduces algae in the water and makes collecting the spent leaves simpler and quicker.
  5. MADE IN THE USA: This product is manufactured in the United States of America by Nycon Products. It is Nycon's model RFI-2.

Tricker's Has a Long and Interesting History
Blue Beauty Water Lily 1896 Tricker Hybrid

William Tricker (1853-1916) was an originator of commercial water lily culture in the United States. He began experimenting in the later 1800s growing and hybridizing water lilies. He improved the shape, colors and hardiness of these beautiful aquatic plants.

In the early 1890's, he hybridized magnificent water lilies gave him a reputation as a lead grower of aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company. In 1892, he introduced the first William Tricker catalog. This rare 1892 William Tricker Catalog as well as other water garden historic relics are still with the company.

Many hybrid water lilies were introduced and named by these noted individuals and are still available today. Some are unique and "first of a kind" in their respective classes and can be purchased from William Tricker, Inc.®.

You can still enjoy these spectacular Water Lily hybrids and witness the beauty observed long ago when we had time to ponder nature's miracles. Volumes of information about the accomplishments and dedication of the individuals that contributed to the success of Tricker's can be written.

Tricker's introduced many new water lily hybrids as well as developing fancy fish and ornamental fish propagation, fish remedies, water pH testing, aquatic fertilizers, fish food formulations, and the manufacture of aquariums and accessories.

Tricker's is, indeed, a company to trust to send you lovely live water lilies and aquatic animals suited for your picturesque water garden.
