So... I am well aware that my 3 Butterfly Koi will eventually outgrow my pond, but I am going to donate them to a lovely local Japanese garden that has a several-acre lake with Koi already in it.
That aside, my 100g pond has 3 Butterfly Koi, 2 Shubunkin Goldfish, Lily pads, and Dwarf Cat tails. The cat tails are just now coming out of the root ball, and some of the Lilys are rotting (we bought the plant live from a pond store, it has lots of new growth but they are not at the surface yet.) The dark green lily pad with the white flower is fake, LOL. We are going to re-arrange the rocks to cover the plastic edges, and going to get a bigger capacity pump for the waterfall. (It has a 700 gph now, planning a 1400-1500 gph) The plants in the garden around it are different varieties of Hosta, ornamental grasses, and a Japanese Maple in the back corner for another focal point. We have done tons of work to this pond but like everything else its still a work in progress.
