Rock Bottoms and Gravel Koi PondsUploader: Akinojar 1 month ago Subscribe 5
If your intent is to raise high quality koi for show or at least to raise high end koi to their full potential, then rocks are not something you should consider. This last option will not remove all of the debris from the bottom of the pond, but will certainly remove quite a bit. The need for a bottom drain or initial water intake system at the deepest area of the pond becomes paramount. That situation results in an environment where pond detritus rots instead of being ingested and broken down. You will have to clean this rock periodically - yearly, or more often. Dissecting their copy from this angle is too banal and not productive Skimmers do a good job, but they obviously do not capture everything that lands in the pond.
