Pond construction today is most certainly easier that it used to be with the advancement of building materials now readily available to us all.We choose to build our pond walls using either concrete blocks or bricks, which are usually available from good builders merchants, but you can also use a liner which we also have experience in constructing with. Brick ponds can then be fibre glassed or rendered and finally painted which will provide you with a reliable pond likely to last for years.
Not only do we help assist with the construction of the pond itself, but we also can assist with the layout and input of the filtration system, for example how to incorporate it into your garden without being uncomplimentary. The filtration system is one of the most important components of a pond and so should not be treated lightly as correcting mistakes may cost a fortune.
Also you should consider the equipment which you will need to run your pond; pumps, air pumps, UV’s, pipework, filter materials, skimmers etc. All of which we stock and are able to help install and advise during the construction of your pond.

Fish Health Service
There is nothing more worrying than when any of your fish become unwell. Health problems can range from bacterial infections to open wounds, all of which we have had experience in treating. We offer a call out service which allows us the oppurtunity to diagnose the problem and offer the correct treatment.
Of course it sometimes is difficult to know whether there is a problem, therefore there are many signs to look out for in order to catch a health issue sooner rather than later. One of the most clear signs is a change in behaviour, such as sitting on the bottom , lethargy, unsettledness, and unsociability. But there can also be physical signs such as lumps and bumps, spine curvature, raised scales, red ‘veining’ and skin blemishes.
In order to treat your koi and prevent any infections spreading (should this be the case) we thoroughly investigate the cause of the problem through a number of procedures. We conduct water tests to check that the water quality is not affecting the fish. We examine the particular koi in question, which may involve taking a scrape to observe whether any bacteria is causing illness, and we also take into account the surrounding environment such as plants and materials. Of course, each koi is individual, as can be the problem, therefore we make every effort to identify the cause and do all we can to treat your koi, which is why our call out service is so important and successful. If you are having any fish related health problems, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
