Fig- 01- Little pond with small waterfall


One of our neighbors designs their yard with a nice small pond for Koi fish. Lovely place to sit around, especially during hot seasons (days).


I believe the pond characteristics are following:

- size 12 feet x 16 feet x 6 feet (3.7 meter x 4.9 meter x 1.8 meter), twelve feet by sixteen feet with six feet deep.

- at least 2000 gallon of water.

- there are more than 10 koi fish in the pond.


Water fall makes the pond not only beautiful, but also good for water circulation which has “trickle down” effect on:

- more oxygen creation to keep more fish

- healthy plants in the pond

- chemical and thermal stratification will be prevented


Fig- 02- Koi fish swimming in the pond


There are many types of Koi fish available, based on their size, at least there are 3 kinds:


1) Domestic Koi fish

- sizes between 12 to 15 inches (30.5 cm to 38 cm) long


2) Japanese Koi

- fish may grow from 22 inches to 26 inches (56 cm to 66 cm) long


3) Jumbo Koi fish

- sizes between 34 to 36 inches (86 cm to 91 m) long


Fig- 03- One corner of backyard


In general, Koi fish could reach their maximum size in 3 years, but Jumbo koi may reach its maximum size in 2 years only.


In nature of Koi fish, everything might be available in their environment, include:

- bugs

- insects

- algae

- plants.


Interestingly, this critter may consume human daily foods as well, such as:

- cereals

- rice

- peas

- watermelon

- lettuce


Have you ever have Koi fish as a pet? What is length size?

  13. Another benefit of the flowing water is the peacefulness of those who listen to it.
