North Carolina!
Going to start a thread for my pond. Since it's slowly changing over the years.

Started about 3 years ago, 4ft deep, ledge width makes it about 13x13 foot, but inner sunken area is more like 10x10 foot.
Bog was added early last year, I believe. 4x8ft or so and 1ft deep.
Pump goes to 35gal bin filter, then spills into the bog, which them falls into the pond.
Several Koi and 1 Fantail and 1 Shubunkin.

Pond and Bog pics from this week.

I added the 3 little Koi last year, all survived winter! They are a black, a tricolor and a bicolor.

Two big ones moved out!

And I couldn't leave the little one alone, so found a cheap koi at the store to be his friend. No idea what kind, 3in long, big scales.

Tried a different spot to get clearer video...they didn't like that.
