    So what were you doing 10 years ago?

    Building our first real koi pond. What about you?

    Have a great 4th!!!!


    PS: It was 8x16x4 with 2 BDs feeding a prefilter (stock tank with springflo) and then an Aquadyne 2.2 bead filter. Don't ask why I did not have a skimmer on it.

    Always good to look back and reflect, to see where you have been and remember the journey. For me, 10 years ago I introduced my wife to koi and she still finds time to love me! & me her.

    Enjoy your celebrations

    Ten years ago, I was living in an apartment in Boston, never had a yard, never had a pond, in fact, I knew nothing at all about koi, and had never even seen one, except maybe at a Japanese garden.

    Howdy Mac,

    We hope all is well with you!!!



    The first picture was the beginning of our second pond in Plano. It was my first attempt at a proper koi pond. The first pond was put in by a "pond professional" after my wife asked for a koi pond. I paid around $2000 to have it put it. Later the engineer in me kicked in and realized it was rubbish.

    Here is a picture of the first pond during the annual day of winter in Dallas.

    Annual day of winter.... We could have sent you a few days of winter this year. There are still four ski resorts open for this weekend with a lot of snow to ski on.

    A bit more than 10 years ago I made my first trip to Japan. That changed amost everything about koi for me. Over then last decade I have made four trips and each one helped me to learn more about koi. Hope to make many more trips to Japan over the next decade.
