The outdoor pond is 1000gal (which is what I measured it at but it sure looks bigger to me). It is about 2.5' deep at the deepest point. There are a pile of rocks in it so maybe that is why it measures so much less than I think it should? The outdoor filter is a Fish Mate 3000 P-UV which I was planning on setting up for the basement pond if I got Koi because the Pondmaster just doesn't keep the water quality where it should be. The goldfish survive but I know for sure that the Koi will need the big filter. As they get larger, your idea of "boarding" them over winter is a great idea. I don't know if anyone in the city do that but I will check with out local pet store.
You might try the Fish Gallery, 959 Main Street or Lacoste Garden Center, 2787 Saint Mary's Road. They might board or know someone who does. Good luck!

Do you live in Winnipeg?
Oh no, great place to visit but I live in the 'lower 48!' I am retired now but used to extensively travel and write for 8 publications (aquarium, pond and scuba) and when I had time, actually taught a college class! :)

Do you have photos yet of your outdoor pond? How many gallons is your indoor pond? Sorry about your weather...I am in Hawaii for 9 weeks.

OMG. That is gorgeous! You must be chomping at the bit to get out at it again. How long have you had your pond? It looks like a mature pond. Hard to believe you just built it last year. Where do you get your plants from? You obviously have a creative bent.

It does look mature but I just built it in June. Once you add moss and drift wood ages it fast . All the moss etc from cottage in near Kenora. Thank you for your compliment.
