For koi owners in temperamental climates, indoor ponds offer peace of mind, especially for long winters.

Also, indoor koi pond is best for koi keepers that live in an urban area that doesn’t have enough space to build an outdoor koi pond.

indoor koi pond tends to be smaller so it is important that the water levels are correct.

Otherwise, the strong pressure could make your koi fish sick or could even be fatal.

Install a high-quality water pump and koi pond filter to help keep water levels and pressure safely.

I recommend using airlift pump it serves as a protein skimmer too.

The efficient filtration should be able to pump the entire koi pond volume of water through the filter in one hour

The smaller size of indoor koi pond also affects the water and gas exchange.

And koi fish need plenty of dissolved oxygen in the water.

So my advice is to use diy airlift pump it serves a dual purpose.

Airlift pump can lift water and aerate the water at the same time.

Koi fish don’t need to rise to the surface to breathe oxygen.

You need also to install a drain in the koi pond.

You can also buy a cheap add-on bottom drain to the place at the bottom of the indoor koi pond

You can also install incandescent lighting with UVA and UVB bulbs.

These will also help any koi pond plants to grow.

Step 1: Initial Design
Decide where you will put your pond, and how big you want it to be. I chose to make mine 4′ X 4′.

The actual frame is 16″ tall, but the water is only 8″ deep, and raised up 8″.

One thing to consider is that 1 gallon of water weighs about 8 pounds. Here is a link to a good pond calculator.

My pond holds about 70 gallons (560 pounds).

If you place your pond on an upper level of your house, you should try to place it along a load bearing wall.

A larger pond should be placed on the ground floor. Please make sure your floor will be able to hold your pond.

Nobody can be held responsible for any catastrophies but you. Do your homework.

This link is a good place to start. FYI, a waterbed holds ALOT more water than this!

Just wanted to share my indoor cichlid pond if anyone is interested.

The necessity arose when my Oscar started reaching 9″ and had
officially outgrown his 40 gallon home.

I had originally planned on setting up a 125 gallon aquarium, but
after sketching some ideas out and talking to the Mrs, she gave me the okay to go ahead with the indoor pond. 😀

The pond itself is roughly 150 gallons and about 7ft long. The water
return from the filter is in the narrow end, which creates a current that empties into what I call the pooling end.

The idea was to simulate on a micro scale a stream emptying into a lake. The natural habit of the fish in the pond varies, and this way they can all come a little closer to “home.”

The pond is inhabited by a 10″ Oscar named Ludo. With him are 2
female Jack Dempseys (both around 6-7″), a Firemouth Cichlid, a
Firemouth x Convict hybrid, a small family of Convicts, and 5 Silver Dollars.
