    Bro Kevin, when i 1st started my pond I had uncovered BD too. I bought 5 tosais local which cost me RM30. In 2 days, there were all missing.....I thought "someone" or "something" got em. Then i decided to flush my pond and filter and buang the "suei". Only to find them in the filter tank after almost 80% of the water had been drained out. They were living in the BD pipe connecting to the filter!!! Thereafter, its been netted.....but suppose your kois are big enuff and as such, they wont tease around the BD

    Thanks bro Smoker :)

    Bro Ssmann, yes initially 2 of my tosais ended up in the 1st chamber but they learn very quickly and don't repeat the same mistake LOL. Nowadays I buy mostly nisais so I'm lucky I no longer need to worry about them ending up in the filter chamber :)

    It will be good to cover them with wire netting cover.......like the one sold in Atarikoi....

    Bro Nivek,

    Congrats!!! You should be very proud of yourself. I think you have come a long way from your very first post in August. Like TK, you have picked up the knowledge very fast.
    Glad to see your pond looking very clear and good now. I especially like your Shiro. Well done, Bro. Hope to see some jumbo swimming in your pond soon.

    Bro Shukri, I'll reattach the cover once I've built a roof over the pond. Currently leaves can cover the bd if I have a cover over it.

    Thanks bro nocturnal and bro Danlee. Couldn't have done it without all the sharing here :)

    well we have to sacrifies something for the sake of our koi rite? :)
    but i think i saw somewhere in the internet where they create a system to get a glass effect pond...

    all the water+air were inverted inside the inlet to the pond thus creating a very calm effect. not sure the DO is enuff or not
