Thank you... yes, I joined a while ago and did not really get around to posting anything until now, which is odd actually because I just love to show it off... its is not huge about under 3000 gallons..
Now now @GBBUDD ... no body shaming. haha!Chunky little fish you got there
Well you do really have something to show off as it is very nice! Looks bigger than that but then maybe it is not real deep in some area's which makes the surface area look big. I would have thought that you had too many fish in that size of pond but w/that super duper filter system you have going it looks like it is working great! Nice clear water and lots of luscious looking plants.
haha, yes they are.. they eat lots when the temperature permits... maybe a bit too plump.Chunky little fish you got there obviously doing something right
Thank you Lisak1... yes thats what I have heard too.. but they dont seem to be suffering too much. Now now @GBBUDD ... no body shaming. haha!
Beautiful pond @Leonard Carpenter . And your set up sounds like it works great for you! Many ponds here in the Chicago IL area are built at only two feet deep. Many koi keepers will tell you koi will not thrive in ponds that shallow, but they do great. And obviously yours are too!
Thank you very much... I shut down the pond at first frost and bring the fish and plants inside to the indoor pond for the winter (until middle of may) and then back outside they go.....I am in Winnipeg and really admire your commitment to your pond. Do you heat your pond all winter or do your fish have indoor quarters?
