    You mentioned netting. I can't see it. If it is there in this pic it is so good, what did you use? I don't have a problem, yet, but I want to be ready if I need to.

    In the summer I use 3/8" mesh netting. From a distance you really can't see it. Here is a picture that shows the net.

    What happened to your 6yr old Matsuba?

    Thanks @Gemma . Don't really know why that fish died. Didn't lose any other fish, and he looked fine.

    I have one that is 11 years old and two that are 8. I think it is just genetics. My koi also aren't very large. Two of them are about 12"-13", the other is maybe 8".

    Thank goodness for the pond breather. My pond has been totally iced over for 2+ weeks, but there is still a trickle of water going through the pond breather. I am hoping in 5 days when it is suppose to warm up to above freezing that the hole in the ice kept open by the aerator reappears.

    This is what the pond looked like December 13 (and what it usually looks like most of the winter):

    This is what it looks like now (and has been for over 2 weeks):

    Yes, thank heavens for the Pondbreather ! I plugged mine in right before this cold snap, in addition to the aerator.

    Beautiful pond @cas! All your amazing in ground ponds are making me want to dig up my backyard and put one in, but it would take up SO much space. Maybe one day I'll have a nice big yard so I can have a huge pond with koi.
