    cheers. i used Antel A1 pond paint to seal it in the end; 2 coats and had enough to do the outside too. First coat was grey, second one black so I could gauge coverage. I also used MS290 on all the joints after it had cured.

    You can't quite see it in the pic but there's an adjustable height overflow pipe in the front section, far right side, so I can by pass the blade. This works really well and I generally run the filter through this unless I'm going to be out in the garden or we have guests at which point I'll run through the blade. The overflow is quite noisy though... anyone got any hints to cure the gurgling?! I have some experience with twin standpipes, herbies etc from reef-keeping but a little rusty and just being lazy looking for a simpler solution if one exists.

    The koi are all from Ogata I am told... I'd love to add a couple more... definitely a doitsu chagoi. Currently feeding them twice a day using a P7000 autofeeder, and chucking in treats when I can... honey cheerios, silkworm... they seem to love ants too. I need to change my UV tube really as it's into year 2 and loosing some potency I think. I should have made it easier to extract the tube!

    ust a couple of update pics folks. All going well.... koi have grown quite a bit since I added them in April..ish. I've added the bog filter and it's running fine. Still need to finish the coping and fit a nicer splashback. One issue I had was cabbage white caterpillars destroyed my water cress. I ripped it all out and fed them to the koi in revenge! I've been putting the polycarb cover on the pond every night (or leaving it on unless it's really hot)... need to make a net cover early next year. I've recently laid decking over the patio too. I had my Jecod PA45 die on me so using the PA90 now, which is a bit overpowered. I need to repair the 45 but not sure what I'm doing.

    That looks fantastic! Love the incorporation of the seating / bar area with the pond. I don't think I'd ever go back in the house!

    ah cheers folks! I'm aiming to stain the decking to blend it in a bit but yes, pretty happy with it now. I'd like to change the pathway to large stepping stones in slate grey too, but needing to make my own 900x600mm pavers for that as I can't find any I like. That's the next project!

    The pond seems to be functioning well... I've got some string algae in there but it's easy just to pull the odd bit out. Probably there because those damn caterpillars ate my bog filter!
