A while back, another forum member suggested that i start a journal for my two ponds, so here's one of the two i have in my backyard..
[ You Can View My 500 Gallon Turtle Pond Here
: 2,500 Gallons
: Water Lillies, Umbrella Palms, Water Hyacinth
: 10 Koi (butterfly/standard fin, ranging size from 2"-6"+), Several Comet Goldfish
: AQUA Ultima II
: Surface Skimmer
We had this pond built when we moved into this house, which was about 5 years ago. We had a builder who "thought" he knew what he was doing, but he didn't. The plumbing was all messed up, which eventually led to a broken pump and filter. Thankfully we found someone else who really knew a lot about ponds, so he fixed it all up and it's been running well for the past few years.
