GORGEOUS wood working skills. I love the final product. You should build them professionally on the side. You could rake in a lot of extra cash that way.

Awesome tank!!

It would be sweet to build a 4 foot wide stream and put some koi in there, then build a glass bottom boat so you can float on the water and watch your fish/ it would be a good way to clean the middle also.

This is Hockey Ref's WIFEY....

he forgot to mention that i had to give up my Jacuzzi to have room for this, but i think i made the right decision, its GEORGEOUS!!!! and so well made. he's a master craftsman and i'm lucky to be able to enjoy all the beautiful things he builds, like our custom kitchen, and roomy bathroom in a beautifully remodeled home. all I contributed was a big mosaic in the front patio that took me a YEAR to finish.

Since the MATRIX is his favorite movie, i told him we're going to call the new pond the MATRIX and name all the Koi fish after characters in the MATRIX movie. we only have 7 so far, but he said we'll have about 20. we need to decide which koi will have which of the following names:
Neo, Trinity, Morpheus, Oracle, Zion, Tank, Dozer, Agent, etc...

it'll be a nice patio experiece for summer bar b ques, nice built in BBQ, koi pond, TV, and good company.

My wife is the one who's into naming all the fish, not me. She not only names the fish but kisses the tanks that I try so hard to keep immaculate...............
