How deep should a koi pond be?
There is no maximum depth for a Koi pond, but the minimum depth for the optimal environment for the fish is from about 18 inches to about 30 inches
statues of birds will usually deter an egret. also, your pond should be deep enough for the koi to stay out of range, at least 36 inches deep. i have rock ledges in my pond for the fish to hide under. if your pond has a ledge, fill it with plants so there is nowhere for the bird to stand.
it should be dudu:)
Koi is a type of fish. Just don't put koi in the pond and it will not be a koi pond.
Yes you can swim in it and they won't hurt you.
6 metres squered at least
Nothing you can do except transferring them to a large tub with a bubbler for oxygen.
start event say i want koi pond
i may be able to help if you tell me what a koi pond is, i know wat a pond is but wats the koi? They will go back everytime they are going to release their tadpoles into the water. The koi pond is not a good choice since the koi will eat the tadpoles.
There are many reasons why might have a Koi pond. One might have a Koi pond for religious reasons, spiritual reasons, or simply for decoration purposes.
No it should not be a problem. Just clean the pond.
You can, but the koi may eat them.
how many koi carp can you have in a 700 gallons pond
Koi Pond - The Office - was created on 2009-10-29.
Will koi eat baby ducklings. We have a mallard duck nesting next to our koi pond. When the ducklings hatch will the koi eat them if they swim in the pond?
yes they will
My koi pond is black, with stone sides. . .to me this makes the fish very visible I would google image "koi pond" to get a better idea. At koi shows they are displayed in blue tubs. Web sites that have koi for sale show all their koi on blue backgrounds. Some koi have black in them and some are completely black. With a black background the black fish disappears.

a koi carp can grow as big as a pond
The best kind of pond pump for a two hundred gallon koi pond is an alpine pond pump. This would work best for this size pond because of it's size and power.
you can its just like this it wont stop growing
Unfortunatly, they don't have the koi pond anymore... it may, if you're lucky come back though. Good Luck!
Koi and pond fish who live in a pond
Koi Carp and Goldfish can cohabit OK. They should however be kept in a pond. Koi grow to over 24 inches and were bred to be viewed from above. Hence the colourfull, broad backs.
Provided the light is strong enough and is on for long enough Duckweed should grow well in artificial light. I do hope you are not calling a small tank a 'Pond'. A Koi Carp grows to over 24 inches long and so it should really be in a real outdoors pond type situation. That is what they were bred and developed for.
As shocking as this may sound, you would need a pond that holds at least 1200 gallons of water
In the elf Island, there is a pond in the *middle* of the Island, fish there and you will get mostly Koi, Bass and sea (pond more like) urchins. ;D
Assuming by pond fish you mean "koi", they are omnivorous.
It is difficult to describe how to build a koi pond in words as the step by step process is quite long, but I have a few pictures of the completed Koi pond in My garden to show the result .please visit http://www.abellandscapes.co.uk/about-us/show-gardens/show-garden
It could be popeye disease.
Koi that live in a pond can get some food from plant matter, and in the winter can survive in the cold temperatures for a couple of months - they should be fed regularly otherwise
put koi in a pond
from a small business that specialises in ponds or someone who has a pond and koi fry.
It depends on where the fish pond will be. It can technically be as deep as you want or as shallow as you want. I would suggest you make it at least 1/2 foot deep. If the fish in this pond are to survive the ice and snow of winter, the pond should be much deeper so the fish don't die of the cold/get frozen in the ice. The circumstances will effect how deep you… Read More
Koi are essentially a pond fish. They grow to around 24 inches long and were developed by the Japanese to have quite broad backs in proportion to the size of their body and be of specific colouring and pattern on the back for viewing from above in a pond situation. They should be fed Goldfish or Koi flakes and/or pellets plus an occasional feed of earthworms.
you kill the algae
My mum has Hornwort in her Kio pond and it has grown very well and the koi have not eaten it at all
in short yes sturgeon can be kept in the same pond as kopi but need different care sturgeon require your pond to be well oxygenated, they also need different food to the koi (sinking pellets) and will have to be removed when administering ertain treatments that are safe for koi but not them (sometimes need removing for upto 2 weeks)
The size of the koi will depend on many factors such as what type of koi it is, how much and what you feed it and the size of the aquarium or pond you keep it in.

Koi can live with goldfish, but may eventually outgrow the pond.
A koi filter is a system used in ponds. It is a method of removing waste from the pond. Bacteria can be used as a method of removing the waste to keep the pond healthy for other life forms.
Koi are a large growing fish (I've seen them at over 50cm long) and so they require a pond not an aquarium. They are also quite expensive. Koi are not for the beginner.
they are dometimes round, can vary in sizes
Koi carp are essentially pond fish (they were bred to be broad backed and colourful from above for pond viewing). They are omnivorous and like most other fish will eat any fish small enough to fit in their mouths if they are hungry. Match sizes and all should be OK. Remember Koi grow to over 24 inches long.
It isn't really recommended because it is a tropical fish but can live with koi if it doesn't get too cold.
Turtles are scavengers and will readily take a bite out of a slow moving Koi trapped in a pond or other confinement.
If the pond is at least 3 feet deep, you may be able to put a few Koi, but they can grow very large (up to 2 feet in size!) and can outlive their owners. This is also going to depend on the climate where you live, if you have many plants, moving water to add oxygen etc. Standard Koi ponds are typically a minimum of 1000 gallons.
Yes pond comets and other pond goldfish get along with koi, however koi can get over 24 inches long when a comet typically doesn't grow more than 12 inches- that's quite a considerable difference in size (which is why its often best to keep koi with other koi and goldfish with other goldfish).
My koi are very skittish and hide during feeding I would like to train them to eat out of my hand They are in a 3' deep 3000 gal pond with lilies that they hide under whenever there is movement?
I have Koi, too. They are more trainable when they get older. If they are six or seven inches long they shouldn't be skittish and should stay near you when it's time to eat. You just have to sit with them and be very patient.
