October’s Pond of the Month is a wonderful execution of an above ground pond, complete with aeration system, water plants, and UV bio filtration – not to mention wonderful koi and African Cichlids.
“It’s really cool because when you stand at the edge and look into the water, it is actually deeper than you would suspect because the floor of the pond is about a foot below the level where you stand.” The pond is gunite structure, tiled in coquina tiles with a small ribbon of glass tiles near the top edge.
– 7 Koi
– 3 Plecostomus
– Tropical Water Lily
– Dwarf Papyrus

ELECTRIC BLUE – African Cichlids
The color and beauty of African Lake Cichlids such as the “Electric Blue” are known for their spectacular coloring. They are perfect for large and small ponds as their vibrant and iridescent color adds a subtle touch of color or a burst depending on your desired effect. The males are bright electric blue and the females are a deep gray. The Electric Blue have a symbiotic relationship with Koi by ridding the pond of macroparasites (fish lice and anchor worms). These parasites are extremely harmful to Koi.

THE RIGHT FOODS – Fish Health
Feeding your fish the best foods helps them to properly digest and assimilate the appropriate nutrients rather than just passing the food product through their system. Hikari foods are a great diet to eliminate nutrition-related scoliosis. In addition, other fish foods with ingredients which are not properly used by your Koi will cause problems with algae production and filtration requirements.
