Hi Everyone,

I've been researching the site for many a month now and became a member in January 2012. I haven't posted anything up to now so thought it is about time I make my acquaintance What a Face

I started my pond way back in 2010. A pig (if you afrikaans)pick, shovel and a case of beer... the day ended up with a big hole in our back garden and a verrryy enthusiastic koi keeper to be pirat . I was busy revamping our "fix me upper" so I had time to get my plans for the pond together. The wife used this to her advantage of course... so I was the "laugh at the braai" for quite some time albino Nevertheless, I took to this site and began with R&D.

So I was ready, two years later and two years smarter, yea right geek I decided to start off small, around 6000L but soon realize I made a big mistake! 25000L+ was the way to go. Unfortunately I was limited with space and since I was "gatvol" of all the remarks like " so jou visse swem dat die stof so staan" I decided to stick to 6000L for a start. I can always build a bigger dam later on once I understand the basics of fish keeping. Nevertheless, my pond was finished December 2012. My fish, plants and water are all in excellent condition and this was my first attemp cheers I have around 20 koi and still a couple of testers left - goldfish and comets. I also have one common carp and two bass just for the fun.Oh, my ponds size is more around 9000L than the 6000L I planned.

Thank you all for the brilliant advise and knowledge you posted on this site. It helped me to build an excellent koi pond right the first time!

Cheers.

Fini

Hi Fini, welcome to the forum.

How about some photos of your pond and fish. Always nice to see other ponds and setup.
