They are a very big part of my life, so I wanted to add a special page just for them and for those that are interested.
It is a slight work in progress, as they all are. Something always needs doing.
Info on it is.
5000 gallons. 22ft long and 18ft wide. 4.8 at its deepest with a shelf around 1ft from the back wall. Gravity fed to Nexus 300, and pump fed to Backi Shower (project in the works for next spring)
Koi range from 12″ to 30″
Quarantine tank/ Baby tank.
800 gallons, raised out the ground with polly-tunnel. Pump fed to Backi shower and gravity fed to pressure filter.
Koi – Approx 30 x Home Bred Matsuawabake, Shiro and Hajiro. 10″ and coming to 18mths old. 1 x Doitsu Kohaku, 1 x Assagi and 1 x Gin rin Ochiba.
Solar panels to help with the cost of heating both ponds.
And CCTV to watch from inside the house… always a bonus when they can’t see you, they act normally.
Thanks for looking. Any koi related blogs are tagged ‘koi’ if you do a search for them.
