koi pond size

ponds leach drain line, concrete ponds. Fish disease if not eaten first. Algae are a constant problem. What about of mosquitoes and West or East Nile Virus?

Ponds are high maintenance, so I can get a ball pressure bio-filter? Do I have a filter upflow or downflow filter? Or a part of the flow? How about a waterfall? Bio-falls? Pondless falls? Liner fall? Concrete fall?

There was once a pond, and could not see the fish to algae. Someone said to use algaecide, and somebody said that to get a UV person said to get plants and another person told me I had too many fish for the size of my pond. No problem … crane ate half of them last month and ate a raccoon rest.

Someone said I need a sprinkler scarecrow or a pond net. "I asked, why? I have no fish, just a lot mosquitoes. So someone else said, buy some mosquito fish, you can get them free from the Department of Fish and Game. I have the mosquito fish, and my sump pump the type of line installed in my line pond fish ate all my mosquito.

My pump was connected to mosquito larvae and mosquito fish died. Someone said I could take away the screen of the pump with a kitchen knife. That worked well, but accidentally stabbed the liner. I searched Google and leaking line found someone who calls himself The Fall Guy. I said get rid of my sump pump and line and installing a concrete pond and stick with bottom drains and high performance, low power consumption of a centrifugal pump, filter back-pressure disposable, a UV light, and an electronic automatic filling the system.

He said that, unlike shirts are not guaranteed against acts of nature, and rod concrete ponds are built and sealed properly will last for decades. Furthermore, the design and proper equipment, which will be next to maintenance.

I said, okay!

It cost me 20 percent more to do all this than what the original pond liner cost me to install.

It has been five years and a half I have a wooden deck built around my pond of 14 inches above the pond surface. The pond is 3 meters deep at the shallow end and 5 feet on deep end. Raccoons hang on the deck, lean over, and criticized the water surface. Crane standing on the edge of the pond is shallow or wishing they could lean so far that can bind a flaky snack. His eyes are pathetic. I am almost running to the kitchen to find a snack. NO!

Once a week I turn the handle on my bio-filter and back-flush the murky water, waste charged nitrogen of several 5-gallon buckets from a hose connected pool filter. Then water my trees and plants with it. Speaking of miracle grow!

After 1-2 minutes of back flushing, I pull the plunger on my brush a couple UV times to clean the property of internal crystalline quartz UV lamp. The film (pond scum) is immediately removed from the lens, giving the lamp UV 6 months of extra life.

Ultraviolet light kills the pathogens that cause disease in my fish and other bacteria that cause the pond to stink. Also kill what is known as planktonic algae that turn the green pond. Twice a year I throw a little rock salt to keep the salt level in a specific gravity of 1.0. The fish have a layer of healthy skin, my feet are happy, and string algae are almost nonexistent. My water is crystal and electronic aquafill maintains the water level so automatically.

Look before you leap and research before mourn.

Happy koi, peace and joy.
