Likely to close down pond this year

Postby david_a » Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:48 am

But need to shift the Koi and Sturgeon first.

Also having a plan for what to do with the equipment will help.

There is a quarantine vat( think about 5 foot diameter and 4+ foot deep) with bottom drain and nexus pod

Cetus sieve
Big nexus (310?)
Small nexus (210?)
EA UV 55w
pumps
Various Secoh airpumps

Will be a certikin skimmer / bottom drain removed but doubt reusable

Pipes and connectors

Am in the south - hampshire/surrey Farnborough (M3Junc4)

If anyone is planning a build and would be interested that could help the decision making.

Hi there.

I am about to start a pond build - approx 7-8000 gallons total. I am just about set with filtration but the fish I may be interested in.

How much of a rush are you in to move the fish on?

Can you provide details of the fish - breeds, sizes, quantity and price?

Thanks,

Ed

Yes will sort some photos at the weekend. There is midori, chagois, kuhaku, two lovely kumonryus, an awesome shusui amongst others. Mix from Cuttle brook or koi water garden.

Hi
I have been looking for a large chargoi for my 3000 gallon pond and wondered if you could send me some pictures of.the koi and prices. I have been a koi keeper for about 8 years and really enjoy the hobby. I'm sorry that you are closing down your pond.
Tony.

Hi
I sent a text earlier but unsure weather you received it. I was wondering what price the chargoi is and what size.
Cheers Tony.

I was wondering what size and how much the chargoi will be. This is the first time on the forum but unsure weather you are getting this message as I've had no response.

OK I've managed to use a proper PC and not a phone and my photos are c**p and don't do them any justice at all.

I'll try and get some better ones asap.
