    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! :;hf

    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!
