View Full Version : Koi Ponds and Water Gardens

I can't find any threads about this particular topic, so I figured I'd start one.

My husband and I are working on putting in an approximately 5000 gallon pond with a waterfall and fish. It's taken two years of digging, concrete block work and lining, but I think we will be done this summer and ready to fill it with water and plants. Depending on how late in the season it is when we get the water cycling, we may or may not put fish in. I am of a mind to throw in 20 or 30 feeder goldfish just to get the nitrogen and ammonia cycles going. Here's a link to how it looked last summer. It's about 4 feet deep.


Anyone out there with any experience with ponds?
