New Pond advice

Postby Cabes » Wed Dec 07, 2016 9:02 pm

Hi I'm Andrew new here
I inherited 3 15vinch koi and 4 big 12 inch gold fish and few baby goldys
I have recently finished my pond witch is 1.5 m deep at bottom drain shelved on 3 sides one shelf is metre square 2 foot under it. Pond is 2.4 metre wide by 4.2 long.
I have a 15000l box filter with uv I feed from a separation tank aslo, a 10000l box I use feeding waterfall.
Water still bit murky but I expect that as sent fair bit of mud in during building. It'll settle
Problay done somthing wrong or not done somthing. Anyone have advice. Is pond decent enough size??? How many more fish would be good?? . Thanks in advance regards andrew
