    Hi Steve,
    It will be the extra length of the pond in its place.That area will be the shallow end of the pond,5.5ft depth.2 sets of Bakki shower will flow down at the end of the pond.The pond will be running on Bakki showers only after completion.

    Sounds nice. It will be interesting to see how happy you are with the new Bakki set up.

    It looks great Dave, you have done a lot in a short period of time. it must be the Koi-Kichi in your blood that is driving you.

    Thanks Russ,
    Have been a koikichi for 10 years now.When I read your post, I was trying to remember what its like the past 10 years keeping kois...Lots of ups and downs but its still my No:1 hobby and interest!
    Have plastered all the interior walls and pipeworks are done since the last 3 days.The shape of the pond can be seen now.

    Now That's a Fence!

    By Golly Koimann, that's a nice change to your pond.

    What varmints is that fence made to keep out though? Looks like 10 feet of height. Tigers? Bears? Dope fiends?
