Description

A koi pond must be properly designed in order for the fish tothrive. Most professionals recommend that a pond intended for koimeet a certain set of requirements in order to provide the besthabitat for the fish. Generally, koi ponds are larger than fishlessponds.Koi pond size requirements:3+ feet deep25 sq. ft. of pond perkoiNo less than 1,000 gallons of waterIt's important to realizethat fish need shade. If your pond location is in direct sunlightconsider growing floating plants like water lilies. Half of theponds surface should be shaded to provide koi with a comfortableplace where they can escape the sunlight. Another benefit offloating plants is that they provide a place for the fish to hidefrom predators.Water plants are an essential element of a koi pond.Aquatic plants help balance the ecosystem, creating a more naturalhome for the fish. Some plants are oxygenators, meaning they willrelease oxygen into the water, which the fish can then breathe.Additionally, koi eat many types of water plants. According to EricTriplett of The Pond Digger, "Fish do not have to be fed providedyou do not overstock your pond. They will live off of algae,insects and other miscellaneous food that the environmentprovides." Certain water plants can be included in this source offood.FiltrationA good pond filter will help keep your pond clearand clean. Koi produce a significant amount of waste, making afilter a necessity. There are two types of filtration: mechanicaland biological.Mechanical filtration traps debris and fish waste.Pump baskets, bottom drains and skimmers are all good formechanical filtration. Biological filtration utilizes beneficialbacteria to convert toxins into harmless substances.AerationFishneed oxygen to survive. Depending on the size of your pond, theamount of plants growing and the number of fish you may need toconsider aeration. Aeration is a process in which oxygen iscirculated through pond water.Waterfalls and fountains are twopleasing ways to aerate a pond. The motion of the water will allowoxygen to circulate naturally. However, you may also want toconsider installing equipment that will help aerate your pond.Aeration pumps or jets are especially beneficial if you live in ahot climate or have large fish.Water QualityThe quality of yourpond water will have an impact on the health of your fish. You'llwant to keep a close eye on water temperatures and pH levels. Idealwater temperature for koi is 39° to 68° F. The deeper your pond isthe easier it will be to regulate the temperature. The best pHlevel for a koi pond is between 7.0 and 7.8.Be aware that chlorineis harmful to koi, it will burn your fishes gills and possibly leadto death. For this reason you must wait at least a week afterfilling your pond for the chlorine to dissipate before stocking itwith fish. If you don't want to wait you may purchase adechlorinator from a local pet store.

Consider wallsize, personal preferences and existing furnishings before youselect art and decor items to balance your walls.VisualWeightBalance pertains to the visual weight of an object, not theobject's physical weight. Some framed pictures and wall decorappear heavier than others. This is primarily due to the size,color and mass of the picture.

The metal sculpture has open areas, while the framedprint has a tightly compacted mass.SymmetricalSymmetrical walldecor is the same on both sides. For example, hang pictures similarin size, framing and subject matter on either side of a chair tocreate symmetrical balance. Provide symmetry with groups of four,six or more similar pictures by hanging half on one side of thechair and half on the other side. Position each picture arrangementin a square or rectangle with about 4 to 6 inches between thepictures in a single group.AsymetricalAsymmetry uses differentpieces of wall decor to create balance through equal visual weight.For example, hang a large framed print on the wall above the leftside of a sofa. Balance out the right side with a smaller picturesuspended over a wall shelf that's topped with a decorative vaseand plant.
