    Thanks for the comments The build starts...The build starts... my initial plan was to wait till spring to introduce fish, two weeks ago when added the temps were mid 13's and they have come from an outdoor pond too, so decided to get 3. They are around 20cm, I'm pretty sure the brown one is a chag. The other two are a possible sanke and the other an ogon.

    They seem to have settled in well although the ogon jumped abit over the first day or two, luckerly not out of the pond! And after eating they have been flashing abit, only after food though. I have tried two different types of food now and it happens with both..

    Feeding ring, made from some left over 40mm waste pipe and bends, to stop food going down the skimmer and to get the fish used to feeding from the same spot and used to me.
    The little chag wastes no time coming up to feed, with the other two following The build starts...The build starts...

    Me too, what a great idea

    I have a floating skimmer that I have to lift out during feeds as it tends to collect food before the fish finish it off

    It’s definitely a great idea to build your pond so you can see the pond window from where you sit in the house. Winter seems to last half the year so it’s awesome to be able to spend time watching your fish without actually being in the garden
