My girlfriend has a pond in her backyard... it's ~1000 gal, with a 250 gal sump holding tank. Unfortunatly, they don't have water in it, as it costs a small fortune in electricity every month to run it. I want to get her parents to run it again.... they used to have 2 dozen koi all about 2-3 ft long, plus whatever random fish and frogs found their way in there. Ill get some pics next time I get a chance, I want to say it's 5 or 6 feet at it's deepest point. Maybe it'll give you a few ideas for your pond s3kshun62

I love koi fish! I went to Thailand on vacation and they have them EVERYWHERE. So beautiful, I sat in the lobby of the hotel waiting for my gf and I didn't mind. just watched them swim around, so beautiful.

I do love Koi, and was actually planning on buying a bigger tank just to keep koi in my room before I picked up my betta Seoul. There is this place here in the town I live in called woodward park. Inside of woodward park, they have a section called the japaneese gardens. Inside of the gardens is a gigantic koi pond..... like 200,000 gal. At one point, they had like 4000 koi in the pond. Some very mean high school kids broke in late at night and threw a bunch of bottles of dishwashing soap thinking it would be funny to make bubbles.... needless to say, all the koi died except for 2. Literally only 2 koi of the 4000+ they had survived. They had fish in there that were over 50 years old. Sucks so bad. I would have loved to make a trip over there and snap some pics for everyone. I'm not sure if they have started restocking the pond yet or not. I know its been about 2 years or so, and it took them a very long time to clean the pond. Ill have to find out.

Wow, that really sucks. I hate ignorant punks who think it's fun to pull crap like that. Poor koi fish. :(
