Above-ground Koi Pond

Picture of an above-ground koi pond with a viewing window for the fish.

Hi Folks,
After some research I think I have found the secret to building this awesome above-ground pond. At first I was concerned about the difficulty of building the brick wall with the viewing window and having it actually hold water with no leaking.

Then I found these fiberglass tanks from Aquatic Ecosystems.

These come in several sizes and have the viewing window built in. You could easily put the brick wall around the tank to dress it up like the picture.

I now have one planned for my back patio.

Thanks for sharing, I know we will be ordering one to house our KOI in for the winter as I will build it up for inside the house.

Hi there, This is a pretty neat pond. I would like to build this one too. I also like that viewing window.

This picture was submitted by a reader when I solicited examples of different ponds.

I have sent your request along with the picture to my pond building expert to see if we can get some direction on how to build this one. I think this might be the next pond I build.

Thanks for your comment. I am glad you liked the picture.
