Backyard Ponds Make Fish Keeping Fun

Koi on Jun 17, 2016
One of the greatest pleasures of installing a backyard pond is the fish. Pond fish and koi are colorful, friendly, fun to watch, and they'll eat right out of your hand! And if you live in Northern climes, they will over-winter in the pond provided it's at least 2 feet deep and you keep a hole in the ice.

    I've heard that Koi fish are very expensive; at least $1000 each. You've got a goldmine there! Did you buy them all already grown or did your fish breed?

    I've always wanted a koi pond. However , here in the NW the racoons think they're fishcicles. Eagles and Kingfishers
    will also scoop down and snag them out of the pond. The Hilton Hotel on the Bay in San Diego has a wonderful Koi pond that meanders
