I recommend planning better than I did. It'll make life easy long term. I did some things right along the way, but there are plenty I won't do again.

My pond build thread

Still no koi. Apparently I missed a couple goldies and they've multiplied again so I've got 4 big ones and a couple dozen babies from last summer. They're all terrified and stay in the 5ft section...

My pond build thread

Pond got really cloudy this winter. Didn't net it and had to clean out a TON of leaves off the bottom. Raked the string algae down to acceptable levels. Cleaned the filter and water cleared up again....

My pond build thread

Really happy with my water clarity. The larger fish in this picture were hanging out down around 4 feet and the sticks are at 5. Hard to see with the glare though.

My pond build thread

I don't know. I might take them to petco. The babies aren't any larger than a 15 cent feeder so time will tell. Some are changing though. In order to get them out I'll have to get a minnow trap or...

Another thing about the front yard. Be mindful of your local laws. Many places don't allow ponds in the front yard over certain depth because they're a hazard for small children.

Yeah there's at least 3 dozen babies. I think what happened was the cold rain caused all of the particles in the water column to settle. I hope I'm wrong and the filter is responsible.

Haven't decided yet. Might try putting babies in a small dish and letting the chickens have some sushi. I've lots and lots of black ones.

I originally had 4 sheets but I piecemealed two more layers and wedged them between the whole circles. Flow seems steady and about the same. Next step is hydra crystal and a fine filter cloth to...

Feels great to finally have decent mechanical filtration on the pond. I have plenty of bio balls in the barrel but up to this point practically no sponges. I now have 6 layers (9 inches!) of matala...

Well I've finally purchased proper filter media after a couple years now. Haha. I got 4 half sheets of matala off Amazon.

In addition to the other sentiments - give it time. Goldfish can live up to 10 years. But probably just genetics though. Quantity over quality is the name of the game at Walmart.

Once I get the water clear I'll remove them before adding koi. When I run the electric out to the pond I'll probably invest in a UV light.

New 8x11 Pond.

At only 2 feet, be sure to add something like a piece of 10" pipe as a hiding spot. Herons are capable of hunting that depth and if they find your pond they will clean it out even with the hiding...

Probably just traditional, although I may get a butterfly or two.

I only have room for a maximum of 5 fish, and that's pushing it at adulthood if you ask me.
