I'm not sure why we haven't had a pond and water feature group before now Leigh.

I do hope we can keep the group moving and help members share the critical info that is needed for good construction and maintenance.

There's such a diversity of info and methods...

Great idea, as a pond keeper of 25 years plus i have ammassed a great deal of knowledge of not only getting things right but also the failings of which there where many. I now have a superb understanding of the build and workings of ponds and keeping what is now a very extensive collection of very large Japanes Koi Carp all from one location imported from the Ogata fish farm in Japan.

My largest and most supeb fish a Chagoi now weighs in at 25lbs and nearly 2feet long and enjoys eating fist fulls of Asda smart price prawns, i look forward to the threadsand discussions on here.

Good idea, makes sense that we have a group like this. I do a lot of aquatic work, large wildlife ponds are a thing of mine, i have installed quite a few over the last few years and watched them develop into beautiful things, but i am often in need of help and advice no matter how many i do.

Leigh let me be first to put what goes into the Ponds (FISH) the members will build here. This is one of my favourites and also the greediest Chagoi.

Thats My Lemon Ogon this is my Chagoi which takes two of us to handle net big enough!! Important when building ponds you take these things into account..mainteneance, cleaning, handling of your stock, water qaulity etc etc.

Plants Slowly maturing and getting fish stocking levels up.
