It’s been a while since I posted anything regarding the home-made koi pond, so I’ve decided to take some pictures on the big fat koi fish swimming in it. It turned out that focusing fish under water isn’t exactly trivial, but I think I’ve managed to captured some decent photos anyhow.

As usual, the fatter ones are most likely female, while the more skinny and graceful kois are males. These kois are approaching 2 feet in length, and getting pretty heavy too. It’s been a little less than two years since the completion of the koi pond project and thankfully the fish are growing healthy and fat. Shouldn’t you build a pond too?

    how did u manage the filtering system? cos i see your water really clear…any tips?

  12. ec,

    You can check out my filtering system at the Koi Pond section of this blog, it’s all there. :D

    Once you set it up nicely, it doesn’t take too much effort to keep the water healthy and clear

  13. nice looking koi! my dad used to have 4 (really really big) in his man made pond. 5 yrs have past n now only left one :( Sad…

  14. Damn nice DIY thru out the whole Koi Pond section, KY. Most ppl just pay for services but DIY FTW.
