Is there any members in the udon area with an interest in the above subject, or with knowledge of where pond supplies can be purchased.

There is a pond supply shop which sell pumps, fish , fish food, etc not far from the complex,on wattana nuwong road near Karin Hotel, i have purchased lots of fish from here, the shop seems ok. Not sure wether they sell top grade koi though. But the fish i purchased where all beauties , and a cheap price.!!

Leprechaun,

First, welcome here.

Well I waited, I would very much like this information too, being an avid Koi keeper in the UK, and I would love to do the same in Thailand, but nobody is forthcoming so here is the little I know

- The pond is easy....you do not need the 5 foot or so in the cold climates
- if you want an example of what is possible, go to the 4 Seasons hotel in BKK and gasp in awe at their Koi pond, it is superb!!!!
- Think Pool pumps, easily available, and home built filters, labour is cheap
- Excellent fish are available at cheap prices if you do not want show quality, Thailand is an exporter now to Japan or elsewhere, Show fish are expensive. beautiful pond fish are cheap
- as Beer Monkey says, food and essentials are available easily, or feed them ground worms, the locals do and they get 24 inch very healthy and impressive "pets"

You "koi heads" must also pay a visit to Safari World's Koi pond.Amazing fish,many around three feet long with all the charts to show the prized patterns.

love koi but know little about keeping them, but was just trying out posting a pic from what you was telling bang saen girl earlier about add image click here, i also never spotted that before, but probably never looked.!
anyway had to re=size a few times and this was the only place to post a picture of a pond, with no koi, i don't think they would live long with the out-laws looking after them anyway, stick with ghost koi instead less baht. :wink:

Size down to 80* 80 pixels as I remember. Still nice Pond bm. Whatever the fish its only false snobbery......just enjoy seeing huh?, Ghost koi are beautiful fish. It's only a hobby, but Ray's advice to occupy your mind is very wise IMHO
