What part of KY?

Check out my pond build photos. I've been planning this pond since 2004. I have been saving money and acquiring equipment and knowledge since that time. All the work and planning is finally coming together.

I prefer koI but I do have some goldfish. The koI get larger and make really interesting pets. The goldfish multiply to fast for my tastes.

I have lots of family in Louisville. I grew up near there but now live in Paducah.

I'd get a koi! I agree with ldbrown, they do make interesting pets. I'm sure it'll be an interesting pond Best of luck!

I'd say it depends on the size of the pond you are building. koI get way bigger then goldfish and thus require more space

A pond is a long way off in my future, but I am already looking forward to it. Congrats on your impending pond!
