Hi All,
Firstly a little background about myself. The names John, I live in Wallan Victoria Australia (about 40 - 50 minutes north of Melbourne CBD). I'm 28yrs old, I work as an Inventory Control Manager and have been with the same company going on 6 years. I'm Married with no kids. Moved into a newly contructed home about 6 months ago so i have a blank slate to work with. Oh and I'm a complete newbie when it comes to ponds and Koi, but i like to read and learn.

Anyways thats enough about me now to ask questions and learn.

Cheers
John

Hi John! Welcome. Sorry about the bad weather your country is having now. If you are thinking about under 1000 gallons then I would recommend goldfish. They won't bio over load your pond as fast as koi and generally are hardier and can withstand greater varieties of PH.

Thanks,
1000 gal = 3785.41 liters, the pond I'm looking at building is approx 9000 liters = 2377.55 gal or there abouts.
