Simon,
Certainly your pond will be included in the circuit. Within DJ there are few ponds worth visiting.

Please include a special Indon dish in your lunch menu: "Ikan Masak Merah"!Sly

Sound really good. May be we can arrange another car pool in Dec for the Singaporean.

What about friends from UK? I guess they must be busy with Christmas right?

Cheers,

John (newgen),

I'm glad you catch the joke...not everyone does and sometime people take offensive of my joke. UnsureUnsure

The point is, it doesn't matter whether you are rich or poor, have a giant pond or a small aquarium, no one can deprive you from your favorite hobby. I have an aquarium in my Thailand service apartment and I'm keeping two med size koi. In my Singapore home, I only have a 5ft FG tank and I have 9 koi. In the process of planning to build a pond. Still working out the final details with Kevkoi who is my main consultant. SmileSmileSmile

Cheers,
Patrick

Johnson,

I will certainly post the pictures when my pond is ready. This is a forum not only for all of us to share our problems but also to share our joy about our loving koi/pond right?

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it in Aug. I'm looking forward to go in Dec though. Smile

Best Regards,
Patrick

Re: Building new pond [In reply to] Can't Post

All, finally my new pond building will start today. I have been looking for at least more than a month to look for pond builder and I can't find one to suit my budget and the filter design I need. They are either charge me too expensive or do not want to follow our filtration system. Therefore, I decided to use building contractor to build my pond. I specified of what I need and they will build for me. The only problem is... I have to take days off to instruct them on what and how to do? Again, I would like to thank to the members who has given me a lot of feedbacks and good advise regarding pond building.

I have one more question? Does anyone know where to get the MULSIFIX component to use it with my concrete pond? I was told by a koi shop owner that MULSIFIX will ensure leak prrof. Thanks.

Hi

Good luck to you!Cool How much is this contractor charging you? RM20K?

Anyway, I have not heard of Mulsifix but you can purchase any good quality pond sealant from hardware shops. G4 is one of them.

Send us pics of your completed pond, OK?

Re: [johnson lee] Building new pond [In reply to] Can't Post

Johnson,

Mulsifix is a product Made in England, I think. I was told this is a very good sealer and they will ensure no leakage and it is very expensive.

Anyone know where to get this please let me know.

I will keep posting my pond building progress. Work has began yesterday. By end of the week, I should have my pond digged.

Re: [sichang] Building new pond [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi,

I would not reccommend Mulsifix. This is used to repair concrete.

Its very rarely used in the pond industry in the UK, I would suggest using G4 as Johnson suggests. This is designed for water features and ponds.

Although, Mulsifix is very long lasting, there is no way of telling what effect it can have on your koi. Mulsifix is a resign based material which may be highly toxic.

I think this Mulsifix product need some deep investigation before using it with ponds.
