Well I certainly have a Pond with a mini pond in the works as we speak..

I am still working on the water fall and stuff..Just waiting on the filture box and Pump to complete the whole project..
The big pond is 30 feet circonference. ten feet Deep.

The Mini pond is about ten feet away which is about 15 feet round and three feet deep, which is where the water fall will flwo down into the main Pond.
We just finish putting up the Victorian House which is where we will be holding the Filture Box, uv lite and other Pond equipment..

Onces I get all the Hoses and Pipes Laid out then i will be bringing in some more rocks, to cover lines and finish off the Pond..

Right now we have about 15 Koi in the Main Pond.. I did add about 40 in Late Spring But they seems to either be hiding or the Cat is feasting on them..

I will be looking into building a Solar Panel in the future as well but not just right Now..
I also added the Superior Wind Mill which is use to Aireate the water..So far it seems to be working quite well..
I will try and add a couple pictures of what has been done so far..

HAppy Water Gardening..:bowdown:

Good Day Dr. Dave,

Here is the Link for Superior Windmills.


Aeriating the Pond helps keep the water more clear and rid of Gas that sits in the bottom of the pond..

It also keeps your pond from freezing in the winter time..

The windmills come in difference Heights as well..
Being I am in a low Valley Acerages I wanted to make sure I got plenty of wind when needed so I ordered the 20 foot Tower.

So far I am pretty happy with it. Onces I get the Filture box and Pumps all hooks up then I will have a Pretty nice Pond...
I will follow up with some more Pictures onces it is all complete...

Thanks Lyle..

I currently have a 500gallon pond in the basement. I had a 500gallon backyard pond which is now in the process of being upgraded to alittle over 1000 gals,with a more natural rock and boulder border instead of the wall block that surrounded it previously. which i moved around the burm towards the back of yard. i have around 35 fish including koi, goldies, shumbunkins,fathead minnows,and picosymus'(did i spell that right?)

Yes

we have an old neglected pond that we wish to revamp. No fish at present but will add them once the frogspawn has gone and we have made our changes.

We would like to build a natural looking waterfull/rhyl that leads from the other side of the garden into the pond.

It is great to see the photos posted and just how good your ponds look altough I think in the US you tend to have larger gardens than us in the UK so we may be more limited :)

I have plans in mind to build a pond. Right now I'm clearing out and area where the pond will go. I love sites where I can learn more and more about Koi ponds.



Peace-

I have a modest 5000 gallon pond that's deep enough to jump into on hot summer days in Arizona. I recently built a smaller partially raised 1500 gallon pond that feeds into the old pond via a creek.

If I had to do it over again, I would have made the four foot deep section of the first pond even deeper. I would also have made the plant shelves and bog garden even wider.
