    1st Pond

    Hi folks here are some pics of my 1st pond build.
    I took a long time looking at various koi sites to get ideas before starting the build.
    The pond is 12 x 8 x 6.5deep
    Two filter systems.
    I have four small koi in at present but will buy two more as soon as ther cold snap goes.

    hope you like it

    Try microsoft Picture-It. Go to "My Computer" and select a picture. Then go "Change Page" in the "Project Options" list lower left. Just fill in the size you want and save it under "save as"

    I think if I were you I'd just get into the world wide web and check out the BKKS

    to find out which chapter was closest and the contact person.



    Good on you,,,,for keeping your numbers low. Great growth, less problems,Smart!

    When you get that picture posting down, you'll have to see we get some koi

    shots. I'm hopeful to find a Asagi or shusui among the photos

    Well done,did you put the cover on the pergola in with the intention of covering it in the winter?

    Just one trick question... did you hide the dirt from the pond under the raised dek?

    Talking

    Hi B Scott glad you liked it..


    I put the roof on to try to cut down on the sun hitting the water and to stop some of the snow in the winter.
    And hide it from the herons i hope
    The filters are under the decking and the kids IF they play up !!!

    Bedskoi, you have a nice manageable pond...You have pics of your filter setup?
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
