How Deep?

The question “How Deep” is often answered by your response to “fish or no fish”. One summer I trapped 15 raccoons next to my backyard pond.

I doubt I would have had any koi survive if my pond had been less than 3′ deep. If you have a predator problem your pond needs to be deep with no shelves and some hiding spots – I am a big fan of using chimney flue blocks.
