I bought a house that had a koi swamp. Ok, just a swamp.... \n[ATTACH=full]90145[/ATTACH]\n\nWe cleaned it out and got it running...\n[ATTACH=full]90146[/ATTACH]\n\n[ATTACH=full]90147[/ATTACH]\n\n[ATTACH=full]90151[/ATTACH]\n\n\nI wound up purchasing a bunch of koi and a filter system from someone who was closing down the pond. We had that running for a bit, then one day, I saw a heron poaching my fish. The pond was only 2.5' deep at its deepest point. I tried fake heron's, a motion sprinkler, but the bird kept coming back, so I chose to make the pond bigger and deeper...\n[ATTACH=full]90159[/ATTACH]\n\n[ATTACH=full]90152[/ATTACH]\n\nA lot deeper. :-)\n\n[ATTACH=full]90153[/ATTACH]\n\nFilled it up...\n\n[ATTACH=full]90156[/ATTACH]\n\nRedid the plumbing and added UV.\nOrdered some rocks...\n[ATTACH=full]90157[/ATTACH]\n\nThat's how it sits now. Just waiting for this stupid weather to stabilize a bit. The plan is to build a couple waterfall features on the ledge that we discovered while digging it out. The coping edge will get smaller rock and plants to soften it up.\n\nC'MON SPRING!!!!
