    Great job on your pond sissy and your fish do so nicely w/ all that you do to make the water so fit for them. You are so creative in all that you do. Love your koi and they are so big and beautiful :)

    I think rectangular ponds are easier to put liner in as all you need is the folds in the corners ..The one wall I could not do straight because there is a drain pipe from the gutter that i was not going to dig up .
