    I know Northallerton at least where it is.
    To be honest Karlos if I was you I would join the Yorkshire koi society,its a very active large club and you could get to know their members and visit ponds local to you to get ideas.

    You dont have to leave here as we dont want to loose you but it may help to see members ponds.

    Think you would have more than enough with two on the nexus Karlos.

    I have 1 x 55 watt on 3000 gals which is never on as I dont have green water.

    Hi guys,

    Little update on the start of the build and a great weekend to start.

    All dug out to 3ft 8inch ready for the drains mid week in between work ready for the concrete next weekend, pictures don't do it justice how deep it is.

    Thanks Karlos

    Sounds good Karlos, can I say how I did mine.

    Cemented first layer of hollow blocks dead level,then drill down through one hollow into the base.
    Hammered in some rebar long enough to go through 3 courses of block,then dry stacked all the way up.
    Poured mortar into the hollows then rebar all the way down to the base job done.

    I had my walls dry stacked in a day on my own,the pouring of the mortar is slow,I used an old bucket with a large hole in it as a funnel.

    Just use a pipe cleaner Karlos and loads of glue,when doing 4ins easier with two as you only get 1 shot at it.

    You can also use acetone as well to clean/prime the pipe ends and fittings.
