Koi Pond with Aquatic Plants (and One Rabbit)
Hi, We built our pond 4 years ago. My husband
started digging it by hand with the help of our rabbit Leo.
is 25 feet by 17 feet. Roughly 5,000 gallons. It is currently
stocked with 38 koi, the largest being about 28 inches long!
have really enjoyed our pond building experience. In fact, so
much so, that we have just added our 4th pond to our yard this
Our pond is also home to a large bullfrog named Bob.
Bob has been with us from the beginning. He got stuck in our 1
hp pump one day, and we buried him thinking him dead. The next
day, he was alive and well (somewhat beat up) back in the pond!!
A couple of years later, and he is still doing well.
If we were
to do it all over again, we would probably make our pond larger.
We have caught a bit of "koi fever" and find it very hard to
pass up buying new koi!!
