    ZNA SoCal visits Ballou pond video

    Sunday, October 17th, 2010, the ZNA SoCal chapter visited Bert Ballou's and Mark Whalen's ponds.

    YouTube - ZNA SoCal visits Ballou + Whalen ponds October 17, 2010

    Since I have always missed the opportunity to see these ponds I decided to drive the 100 miles South to the South Coast area of Los Angeles, the heart of Southern California Koi, to attend this meeting.
    It was worth the drive!

    Very nice ponds and fish. Great video! I especially like when filtration is also shown when filming a pond.

    I found it interesting that the filtration for the ponds was basically "old school" and the only change mentioned was that Mark was planning on changing from 2/4 with Japanese mat to 4/4 Japanese mat some day.

    The cork splash damper on Ballou's pond reminded me of my Asahi Koi visits. I use to have one on my pond.
