    If the one has worked for you, why change?

    BTW, have you thought of going bigger with the new pond?

    In most cases, a 25 Watt UV should be sufficient for a 1,000 gallon pond. A 9 Watt may be a bit too small, especially during the peak of summer. As Mike already mentioned, however, you may wish to consider making your pond a bit larger, however, especially if you intend to keep more than a few Koi...

    i thought about it and asked my landlord to let me build it and i will pay for everything and leave everything when i move but he is a hard head so. i decided to build one of wood it is going to 7x7x3 but average depth of 2 1/2 but that is going to be a inch off my garage and leave me 2 1/2 feet betwwen ponds. i plan on building a 10x10x3 or 4 at my grandmas soon after this one i wish i could have a huge pond but socal limits your space.
