A 1500 gallons Koi Pond <3


Hey Ppl!!

It happens that we have at our house a pond that was already made by the previous owner, but ever-since wasn't in use for 2-3 years. Now being the avid aquarist that i am, i just couldn't leave it unattended, so for the last 4-5 days i've been cleaning, and re-vamping the whole thing to make it livable again.
After 3 ful garbage bags of cr*p, finally got that thing clean, and figured out on first try how the filtration system works.We got here a input/output box of the Laguna 5000 Filtration system, with the biggest pump the hard-ware store had to offer which i bought a few days ago. Hooked it up, water began running and i fixed up the waterfall to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
There's already some aquatic plants in there, and 11 goldfish/5 beautiful kois (2 grey with big scales/2 golden with big scales/1 big red)

Here is a few pictures of my new babeeyyyyy

Very nice! Lucky you!

My Mom had a pond outside that was about half that size. She ended up having to protect it with netting due to predatory birds who saw an easy meal.

How nice. In the winter do you have to bring the fish in or they will survive the cold?

You are sooooooo lucky. A pond that size would take up half my yard! I have a 250-300 gal nature pond that'll have to do for now. :P
