I like watching them build ornamental ponds on the DIY channel. It always looks like a fun project with a real sense of accomplishment at the end. That's really cool that you and your wife did this yourself.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

When we bought our house it came with a koi pond. We put the heater in during the winter to keep a hole in the ice, put algicide in once in a while but the snails usually take care of the algae pretty well; other than feeding the fish that's pretty much it. It helps that we have a good-size waterfall (recirculating) that goes into the pond. Another thing that helps keep the water clear is a little bale of barley straw.
