    I was home and about 40ft from where it hit the shed. Blew some shingles off and singed it a bit. I lucked out I think as there was an aluminum extendable wand for the pressure washer where it hit. I...

    It looks nice at night, but the feedback is going to be in the details. How big is the pond in size and gallons, what kind of filtration, etc.

    I second Rich's comments. I typically make all of my purchases at a local koi show. You can a ton of koi in one place and not eat up your budget on shipping costs.
