    Smile New to the Forum

    Hi Everybody,
    Living in North Wales, been keeping fish most of my adult life and a couple of years back got a few Koi and its transformed my life, really got the bug! Currently have a 3,100 gallon pond with 6 Koi and some goldfish, two new builds starting next year, a 5,000 gallon pond for the Koi and a smaller goldfish pond, I'm sure the Forum is going to help me going forward its always helpful to get different opinions and some of the old threads make great reading,
    Cheers
    Paddy

    Sure most on here are on 2nd 3dr even 4th before ironing out the issues am on number 3 and I would rip it down in a flash to rebuild a "proper pond " the forum has helped endlessly

    welcome to the forum Paddy, a lovely looking pond there and some nice fish too

    So what is the plan with the new ponds then, upgrading much kit or adding to it to manage the water increase ??

    thats a cracking set up,
    what i wouldn't give to have an indoor enclosed pond....

    inspired roof, i like it!
    not a scaffolder by trade are you?

    getting a feeling of Déjà vu like i've seen the pond somewhere on line before...
    has it been on youtube?
