Update on the pond. The water is clear, plants are thriving and the 4 fish seem happy. Planning to get a few more fish. Check out the pics.

Thanks! I only have 4 fish at this time. A friend of mine is wanting to reduce his population, so the fish that I am getting are free. They are Koi as well. The four that I have are 6-8 inch big gold fish. Oh, they were free as well.

Let me tell you, I cannot believe how patients are such a big part of a new pond. I had to go to California for a business trip and that was the best thing that I could have done for the pond and filter to mature. So if you ever build a pond, mix in lots of patients.

Hmm.. if you want more fish don't do anything. Just let grow a thick sedge area that the big fish can't get to. Then you have a good place for fry and babies to hide. My pond has had over 50 babies in the last 4 years starting with just a half dozen fish.
