The build breaks down into two sections. There's the polytunnel area for the filtered ponds, and then the fry pond area.
|Flat and compacted, this patch of ground is ready for the polytunnel|
|An emerging fry pond. It will end up 12m wide and around 25m long.|
My koi are residing in a temporary pond, and the warmer weather over the last few days has started the spring cycle - water temps are rising, the koi are becoming more active and toxic ammonia is on the up. The biological filtration is yet to catch up and here's the result:

The weather is taking a turn for the worse which will knock back the polytunnel build. With the koi likely to stay in their temporary home a week or two longer than I expected, I've started 10% daily water changes, and I'll beef up the filtration this weekend with some additional mature biological media. And that should do it.
Happy koi keeping
