    Looks great Mike! You should feel good about this pond build. I think your koi will be fine for the winter. Not sure how you do things in your neck of the woods, but I'd be implementing a flow through. Being new and not mature, I'd think your koi would benefit form a constant source of clean water. Plus it'll give them better health coming out of winter. Sure looks like you'll be having some fun in 2014.

    um yes they do allow it in my experience lol. My family and I have 9 koi and about 3 gold fish that end up having around 60-80 babies and most of them are goldfish that we end up giving away or selling. In other words the gold fish eat the koi I think we have like 2 koi fry this year that survived last year... oh and about 3 koi gold fish hybrids.
