Couldn't find a proper location to show my other, "non" (future) planted tanks... I threw in some of my pond as well... If there's a better place for thread can mod please move it for me

My boy's 65gallon goldfish/bullfrog polywog :)
Keep it heavily filtered and lightly stocked... He's not good at maintenance,, and I refuse to clean his tank... Lol.. I have enough to do ;)

Master bedroom goldfish.... Btw these goldfish are all 6"+... Except the little calico telescope I put in there and woke up the next morning to find that one of larger fish ate his eyes... Really sad, but cool thing is, he gets along fine.. Doesn't run into stuff and eats well.. You'd never know he was blind if you didn't notice the holes where his eyes used to be :).. I love the tough little guy

6000gallons, a bead pressure filter, a shower filter, two skimmers with 10" thick worth of matala filter mat in each.. A 4" bottom drain feeding the bead filter,, a retro bottom drain feeding the shower. The two skimmers feed a 750gallon heavily planted bog filter. I have four pumps, two submersible and two direct drives, totalling 25,500 gallons of water turnover an hour through filtration (minus head pressure, of course)
I go to koi shows and have three trophies to my name .. One for best metallic koi,, one for best fish entered by a first time competitor and one for best fantail goldfish... They were hand made plates engraved on the back.

I made the fancy japanese looking wall thing to hide my filters and 300 gallon quarantine tank

Incredible pond and Koi.

John Simpson 09-16-2013 11:06 PM

nice koi I really like how you have a good mix of the types, you can always tell when someone is into the koi as opposed o just having a pond or "water feature"

Those are some beautiful koi and I admire you for putting in all the hard work to install your pond yourself, it's not easy doing all that manual labor. I followed your pond build over on koiphen and it's nice to see it progress.
