    Photos of members ponds

    I'm sure this has been done at other times previously, but how about a thread for members to post recent photos of their ponds - and maybe just a few details.

    To get this started here is a photo of our rustic pond:



    Size: length 16 ft 6 in / width 9 ft 6 in / depth 7 ft 6 in
    Capacity: 4785 gallons 21492 litres

    Filtration:
    Home designed 5 chamber multi-bay (still working well after 10 years)
    55 watt Kockney Koi UV filter
    4 chamber weir system with 2 waterfalls, returning approx 50% or less to the pond
    and 1 venturi returning 50% or more of water from pump through UV to pond

    Fish: 18 koi (15 Japanese 3 English / Israeli
    approx sizes: 1 x 20 cm 1 x 30 cm 10 x 40 cm 4 x 40 cm 2 x 60 cm

    Please note: Putting your photos on this thread is the main thing. Adding any details is completely optional. Let's hope we get to see lots of different ponds!

    All the best,

    Bryan

    This was my first pond I built when I started out with just goldfish
    Then I discovered the world of koi keeping and well the rest is history
    I ended up with this all the sizes ect are below in my signature I currently have 3 ochiba ranging from about 40cm down to 16cm
    A shiro utsuri around 20cm, a doitsu benigoi around 26cm a doitsu kujaku around 40cm
    another doitsu hariwake around 34cm, 2 chagoi around 10cm, 3 small orgon koi, 3 grass carp great for blanket weed munching and a handful of goldfish from my old pond


    And a few of the mutts


    And my sanke that I will be getting when the temps go back up in the spring

    Hi bryan08
    thats ok no probs at all, lets just keep this thread to pictures of peoples ponds with no chit chat because i think its a pain when all you want to do is look at other peoples ponds and you get alot of chatting making the thread longer then needed.

    please can every body put details on there pond and filter system used.

    mark

    Lol. The old fella next door pestering me into it. We have a bit of a lines in the lawn thing going on but I think he has the trophy in this pic. Amazes me though, he's 80 and puts me to shame with the gardening shifts.
