    Cool Pond newb, forum newb

    Hi Guys,

    Complete novice in the koi world and I'm here to seek some advice here and there

    I have started building a below/above ground, glass panel pond with the plan to lightly stock it with some different kinds of coarse species.

    It will be around 2500mmL x 1500mmW x 1500mmD I think that's around 6000L. don't know weather to render/fiberglass/liner the pond yet

    At the moment i have a gravity fed system in mind running through a box filter and UV and pumping the filtered water back into the pond (have no idea if this is the best way to go? or if that works)

    I'm going to make a build thread from the point of view of a complete dummy and hope that in the process i can help answer some obvious but not obvious questions along the way....

    (I'm an electrician so the electrics will be the only thing ill have any confidence in )

    Talk to you all soon!

    Hello and welcome.
    It might be worth visiting some ponds first to give you ideas.
    Joining a local koi club might help or maybe someone on here will allow to look at their setup
