Am retired and have moved practically all of my plants into containers or the goldfish pond. This has worked very well for me as I like having my plants close to the house.
I also enjoy making plant containers and garden decorations with hypertufa, a light weight stone.
I’ve been ponding for over 10 years, but the new Goldfish/Koi pond is my passion now and just can’t get enough of it. It’s a crescent shaped 4500 gal pond with a 150 gal Skippy filter. Am using a Pondmaster mag drive 2400 gph in the skimmer operating various spitters/aeriators, and a Pondmaster 4000 gph Hy-Mag drive for the skippy filter/waterfall.
I have one large Koi and 11 various goldfish in this pond, currently, but have recently purchased 2 baby 3" golden butterfly koi to add to this group.
Update: Have added AV high volume air pump with 12" diffuser. All fish have grown several inches in only 2 months since adding this air.
UPDATE: Have added an AV high volume air pump and diffuser and a second skippy filter.
UPDATE: The baby butterfly koi are now over 12" long at one year old!
