Pond was created by jimbob (James O'Reilly)
Hi all! 

Please delete if this in the wrong section! I am hoping to setup a pond. I have been keeping fish for 10-15 years, mainly Platies but also goldfish, a betta or two and some snails so I have some knowledge, but this will be my first pond. I was planning on having a raised pond, i.e. one which is not dug into the ground, which will eventually be incorporated into some decking. Essentially I am looking at getting a container and using that, I am looking at water troughs and attic tanks at the moment.  I am happy to work away with 5-10 goldfish but I would really love some koi, although I know that these would need a much larger pond. I will be sure to check my parameters before stocking, get proper filtration and cycle the pond.

My questions are:
1. Does anyone see any immediate problems with my plans?
2. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I could get a large, cost effective, weatherproof container?
3. Has anyone done something similar, particularly large enough to facilitate Koi?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
