The Koi pond at night


Hi all again,

Just a small follow on from yesterday blog.

I decided to take a couple of pictures of the pond at night as we have lights over and in the pond.

Not brilliant, but these are the results.

Are you going to put something in the pond for the fish to shelter ? It doesn't seem natural for them to be in the open like that all the time.

It's a covered pond Hywel. The bamboo cover shades the pond from the sun and keeps the string weed at bay. It's pointless putting plants in a koi pond as they eat them. The pond is 4ft deep so they have plenty of depth and the pond is netted as well so they are well looked after.

What about a floating planter with some shallow surface spreading plants :)

I see ... thanks for explaining. I didn't understand that.
