Beautiful job done well. So many negative comments. Well done on the pond.

You do not need a waterproofing agent if you do it correctly.
There are many ways to do this, here is two:
--Use a ferrocement technique laying wire and use the right mixture of fine sand and cement, apply "cement milk" layer
--You can dig a hole and pour a large cement pond and paint on a "cement milk" layer there are many names for this but it is just a really wet mixture of cement that is the consistency of toothpaste. Just coat it and you will seal the pond. Make sure to work the wet edge, if you stop and come back and start again you will have a leech spot there.

there is a waterproofing paint you can use after the pond is done.

Im truly not trying to sound rude but my koi are just about as long as your pond. I feel like this pond would better suit little goldfish or an aquatic turtle.

The pump in this is enough to keep the water aerated, the key is to keep the water surface broken and the plants work as filtration. So it could very easily once cycled and established sustain a fish. If you know anything about aquascaping you'd know this... The structure itself is sound, although I personally prefer a liner. The only problem I have with it is that it's too small. But something like this could make a nice addition to a stepped or cascading waterfall.

Start an argument then delete comments. Have some ass if you're gonna argue people.

^---- and that sounds really mature. Can't find a feasible argument, so let's cuss 'em out.

I think one this size is a waste of time. You OBVIOUSLY don't pay attention. I said it was enough room for A FISH... NOT MANY FISH. Actually minimum is 4 ft deep, by at least 8 ft wide. I think if someone is going to build/dig a pond then one should go for the gold. I said, if you'll read again before turning troll mode on, that it was too small. Requirements if you want to keep koi is to keep the depths of the pool below freezing levels in your area. In my state its a good solid 2 feet. With 2-55 gallon planted tanks, a 100 gallon with just fish bc they're african cichlids and tear plants to pieces, and several nano planted tanks, yeah I think I know a thing of two about aquatic plants and fish keeping.  Now, I'm done with you little arrogant asshole, happy head hunting  dperry428....

This is a disgrace, it is going to be Koi grave pond, pathetic!!!!

This is horrible for a 'Koi Pond'. This is more likely a Koi graveyard. please do a little research before attaching a term you think is popular to your video. This is more like a large in-ground birdbath.

you can find plastic ponds that size, cheaper and much faster

this cement pond is not prettier than plastic one. and does not has water proof. Plastic is definitely better than this one.
Marilyn Higginson

Yes. But it will look like—you know—plastic. Often there's a good reason for spending a little more and doing some slow work. Unless you don't care about the aesthetics.
