I ad the water tested Monday and the Hp was a tad hight so got advised to do a 25% water change leave it a couple of days and have it tested. So then I toke a sample back Wednesday morning and alls good so I was at dronfield yesterday and picked up some nice grade A koi as well as some top advice on koi what and not what to do I would highly recommend them to anyone who are after koi. There was some nice 20 to 25" koi good quality fish but the price wow £1500 I will just get the 4/5" koi please mate hahaha

Don't be tempted to stock up the fish too fast.you have to allow filters to mature with good bacteria if you stock too fast ammonia will go through the roof resulting in dead fish.Good luck with everything pond looks very nice.also you could hang planter baskets over the side if you wanted more weeds.
