The Frady's Pond
Keeping koi since:
Introduction to koi: Visited Joe and Sherry White in Florida and fell in love with their pond and koi
Favorite Variety: Utsuri
Why: I like the color mix of the pure white with the black or the pure red or yellow with the black.
is 12.5' wide by 23' long by 5' deep
Number of koi: about 35, I lost count
Plants: some water lilies for now but they may be moving
Filtration: Run a dual system by Wm. Lim composed of 2 one-third hp pumps which are fed by 3" bottom drains. One pump feeds a pressurized bead filter and the other feeds a pressurized settlement tank, bead filter, and a UV light. Both systems return through directional sidewall jets and the waterfall. I am installing a second UV light to assist with algae growth.
Future Plans: Discussions are underway to create a second pond which will be primarily for water plants and small koi. This pond will be only two feet in depth and will utilize more natural filtration systems
