The place for the garden pond When making your garden pond, the option of location is important. A bit like a swimming pool, you need to choose a place that is very clear. It is not advisable to place it underneath the tree because the leaves that fall under the water, but also the root cellar that may break the pelvis. Basin shouldn’t be too bright for the well-being of plants and fish. In terms of size, know that there are no rules. However, you should bring a basin having a depth of some of the better balance of the organisms living there.

Fish Need Water that is clean

Fish will need relatively water that is clean, so you may need to consider filtering water-feature with a pond pump and biological filter. Hardier fish, for example goldfish can handle a more strenuous environment than the others, like koi or fancy goldfish.

Greater quantities of fish or larger fish have a bigger impact on your water quality, so extra filtration and/or a bigger pond may be necessary if this sounds like a concern for you.

Let Them Breathe

Fish require oxygen to breathe much like we do. If you keep small quantities of common goldfish with sufficient of space, you shouldn’t have a problem. Inside a densely stocked pond, however, it might be best to provide aeration by using a fountain or waterfall and pond pump.

If you are planning to keep koi, it is kind of a given that you should have proper filtration and aeration. Koi grow so large and convey so much waste that a good pump and filter certainly are a necessity.

Make it Deep Enough

The very least depth you can reasonably pull off and still have healthy fish could be about 16 inches. This is for hardier fish for example common goldfish and only in very temperate climates.

An average depth to aim for inside a goldfish pond would be 24 inches, deeper if you reside in areas with extreme temperatures. Deeper ponds convey more stable water temperatures and lead to less stress on pond fish during season changes.

In case your pond is very large, or you intend to have koi (which get quite large) you need to include an area in the center of water-feature that is 36-48 inches deep. This is particularly important if your water garden will be located in a large open area that’s subject to winds.

Shallows Are Important, Too

Some shallow areas will also be necessary so that your fish may have basking areas where the water is warmer in spring and summer. Planting shelves may serve this purpose. Make sure they are large enough for the size your fish intend to have.

Fish will often spend time in the areas of water-feature that are at the temperatures which are most comfortable to them at the time. Developing a variety of depths, at say 10, 18, 24, 36 as well as 48 inches, will provide all of them with the best possible environment.
