  • Bakki showered ponds around the world

    To those of you who are interested I have been collecting appraisals of bakki showered ponds all over the world and finally have been able to update them. There are now ponds from malaysia, indonesia and US. Soon our own tewa koi pond will be added. Here is the link

    http://www.tewakoi.com/BakkiShowersCountryIndex.htm

    If anyone would like to have their bakki showered pond added please email me at [email protected]

    please send a description of the pond such as
    depth
    volume
    turnover rate
    amount of bacteria house used
    indoor or outdoor
    whether you have low or high tds water
    number of kois in the pond

    and photos of the pond and showers.
    There is no such thing as a zero maintenance pond but the closer you get the more time to enjoy your koi. Soft low TDS water is the perfect pond water.

                  Hello again Craig

                  This will in metric units mean turnover 1.2 and pumps handling ~27 300 l/h. No particle left un-grinded for more than ~48 minutes and the same goes for oxygenation and degassing. You dilute the system with 6% daily. How often are you planning to take the system down and refilling it?
                  The speed is presumably high enough to keep dust from settling in your system.

                  You feed 0.57 kg pr day off what protein level and to who many inches off Nishikigoi? With this data I could toy with some calculation up here in the cold north.

                  All your “bad” readings are 0.00 and pH is?

                  Thanks again for giving us something to play around with in the cold time to come.

                      Appears this indoors? So, no leaves, debris to contend with?

                          Thanks
                          Think you covered it all, which is for my brain to mess around with.

                          Correction – rewritten

                          When I ask about full scrub down and total water change I’m not asking for the filter system but for the pond system as a hole.
                          We noticed that Momotaro for example has one each year on his 1500 tons pond. Not at all or never seems for us to bee really a big factor for pond density (didn’t think Momotaro stocked that heavy either).
