My dad made me a pond around twice the size of a king size bed just to be honest its really big,my dad put koi and gold fish the usual stufss.. and some mollies in it, its 3 ft deep, and i cant keep up, there is no pump, the pond has black water i dont know why (duhh dirty), it has been 2 months now since the black water has been arround, but the koi did not die, now, i didnt put plants because the koi is gonna eat it,im so pissed out, so i just leave it like that, its a bare pond so no rocks and no pump, now guys i want you to suggest on things that i need to do, i want my pond to be nice looking, i know you guys will tell met o put a pump, i already bought that but i didnt installed it yet, i need your answers, as many as possible with detailed pictures ex. water falls and stuff, and type of fishes to put and if you want plants in my pond tell me how the koi is not gona eat it, reply as many steps as posible cause im gona do it step by step. by the way the design of the pond is rectangle. i hope you will post pictures that are taken from your ponds, encouraging words would be helpfull since i know how ugly my pond is(dont remind me), thanks guys hope you will help.

1. will i change the type of fish? example throw out the koi and change it to arowana lol

2. what water falls fit best in the rectangle pond?

3. will i put gravel? or just big rocks?

4. how deep will be my pond?

hi my dad has built me a bigger pond as well and i have a very large pump to the left side of the pond what i would reccomend is maybe if you have algae then you will need plants as they will oxygenate your water and will make it cleaner and there are also some certain type of snails that you can place in your ponds which eat algae but beware they breed like crazy so keep control of the numbers.
so the main things to get are plants and install your pump and it shud clear up in no time .
