I had no idea that there were fish in that water by the Castle!!! In fact, I am almost positive I have looked down, hoping to see something other than the occasional duck (it is habit for me - whenever I see any body of water - a pond, stream, creek, whatever - I always look to see if there is any life swimming around in it) and I have never seen any fish!! Have they been there all along? That water is so murky that I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people have missed it. People toss their coins in and pieces of junk and the poor fish probably try to eat it. At The Grove, which is right up the street from me, my favorite thing about it was when they first opened, they had koi fish in a little creek/pond thingy that led to a little waterfall. And you could sit right at the edge of the creek and get a close up look at the fish. And over by where they have a jumping fountain, they used to have little turtles in there, milling about. But people (especially young kids) can't control themselves and they tried to grab the fish or toss coins in with the turtles and so, of course, The Grove took out the fish and the turtles completely. Same thing happened over here at LACMA and the Tar Pits (also right down the street from me). There was a little stream and waterfall in the grassy park area between LACMA and the Tar Pits, and it was filled with crawdads. One day I noticed one of them perring from behind a rock, and then over the next few weeks, they were everywhere. Baby crawdads, big granddaddy ones - all sizes. I loved going to stand there and just watch this little bit of nature in the middle of metropolitan L.A. And then these @#$%&*^ kids would come along and start grabbing at the crawdads and kill them. I watched one little particularly obnoxious boy in front of me who was determined to catch this one crawdad and he finally killed it. I swear I wanted to push him into the stream so badly so he would get all muddy and goopy!! I kept telling him that the museum had put those crawdads there just for us to enjoy - the crawdads are not a natural part of that property, so if people kill them all they will not come back, etc. This brat didn't care. He was on a mission to massacre them. And so, of course, the surviving crawdads were removed and so was the stream/waterfall.
