  1. Thanks for all the suggestions guys :) Yes I think I will treat the water before adding any fish. Yes you are correct Ray, we will probably be setting this up right in the middle of summer, so will have to be careful. I was thinking about getting some wakin goldfish (since I can't have my Koi), but I might start with a couple of standard comets from the local pet store before I go buying a more expensive goldfish. I would love nothing more than to go and buy 60 fish and put them all in.... but I know I shouldn't!! The pond will get little to no shade, so I am definitely going to have
  2. I've started a new topic... hopefully I put it in the correct area!! http://ausaqua.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=12677

We have a new house on a block that came with no services. $25,000 just to get power up to the house!!
  5. Have you finished your pond? I would love to see some pictures! Just about to start a 4 metre x 2 metre about ground pond.
  6. Hi Everyone My name is Alison, and i'm from Central Victoria. I've always loved fish and have over the years had many different tanks and cold water / tropical fish. At the moment I have only one very small bowl with a Siamese fighting fish called Lafayette (colourful like the character from True Blood!)... but all this is about to change!! My husband and I are just about to embark on the huge task of landscaping our yard (we're on 5 acres), and I have decided we are going to have a very large above ground fish pond. It will measure 4 metres by 2 metres!!! The idea is that it will
