    This is 1.2 mtrs long
    60 cm wide and 30cm deep.
    The bottom measures 1 mtr long I know I wont ever have a koi that big but I wonder is it too big.

    First good point it doesn’t have added Koi tax. In an emergency doubles up as an isolation tank or to add treatment to a small number of koi?

    I have one similar sized but much deeper, but then one of my biggest is around 70 cm, we used this sized trough to rescue move a few fish inside separate plastic bags

    Looks ideal John, where did it come from? The plastic super fish ones that measure up to 65cm are around £40

    Spot on Dave, from Toolstation £33.35 and free delivery though I picked mine up as I wanted to see it first.

    Plasterers bath made from polypropylene ie same as an ibc tough as old boots.
    Thought about returning it but better to keep I think and buy an adhesive measuring tape.
    Be better in blue I know but you cant beat the price.

    for measuring purposes looks spot on John, shame its not a bit deeper but for the money is good value, if it was blue you can double that
