    Welcome to the board.

    My 15,000 gallon swimming pool has turned into a duck pond :( Short of just dumping a 325 gallon pond, I don't see how you'll keep it clean.

    How many gallons is that aquarium and how many fish? Koi aren't aquarium fish, they are dirty fish that secrete a lot of waste and ammonia. The gravel on the bottom holds poop, food and bacteria.

    If he is like a heron, the only thing that will keep him out is netting. Larger mud ponds use fishing line criss crossed. Once they find the fish, they keep coming back.
