    Stepthen: This method you used; would this method seam feasable for ponds in the size range of 20,000 to 30,000 gallon ponds or is the cost much more then standard gunite concrete and polyurea coated ponds?

    You need to be extra careful with that camera of your.

    We sure dont need anything happening to it.

    Great pics.... What happened to the SATAN?


    The first step towards getting somewhere, is to decide you are not going to stay where you are.

    Hi Bob. Sorry I missed your post. No, I do not think it would be feasable for a pond of that size.

    I wanted to bump your thread back up Stephen. Hope you don't mind. I bought two Cetus sieves from another member today and mentioned your pond. they hadn't seen the thread before so i started wondering how many others hadn't seen it as well. The varsity pond is one pond worth bringing back up from time to time to allow the new members to enjoy. heck i enjoy it everytime I see it!

    Wow that's one heck of beautiful herd of kois you own and that's only B team LOL. You have one hell of beautiful kois B team benefit from clay pond outside of Japan. Why don't you set up some web cams and stream them for us jealous folks can appreciate them in action.
    Thank you for those amazing pics.
