ABC’s of Ponds—A Pond Primer: What You Need to Know for Long Term Pond Success, by Carolyn J. Weise, is exactly the book I wish I’d had in 1990, before our first pond was installed.
It has everything a ponder wanna be needs to know, from types of ponds, filters, pumps, water changes, bacteria, food, bottom drains, stocking, seasonal care, problem solving, among other topics.
Her writing style, reader friendly and clear, is engaging and supportive, and she includes examples and some wonderful photos. This is a valuable addition to our library holdings.
The book, published by Gardenside Publications in 2011 has an easy-to-follow layout, a clear and helpful table of contents, and down to earth advice about koi and ponds.
This is a book for any koi keeper, but it is especially good for someone starting out in this hobby. While she includes basic information about koi health, this is not a compendium of technical health and disease information—we have Johnson, Saint-Erne, and Roberts for that.
