I had a koi pond at my last house was my pride and joy. Used to love sitting at side of that after a day at work used to chill me out.

Now I only have beer and/or vino!

mine was big, 16ft x 16ft and about 4ft deep in middle. It was too big for garden really but I loved it. I will see if I can find some pics. I think I have old filter n UV n stuff if you want it rex? I will have to check in shed like, might need some new foams and brushes but cost you 30quid instead of 230.
