    I love my Koi pond, no garden should be without one. When I lived in UK I had a bad time with herons eating my fish and I think netting is essential there. My pond in California hasn't had any problems yet!

    If you have a problem with cats, herons or even are worried about small children falling in, you can get an almost invisible mesh or grille to put just under the water. Most cats won't even take any notice of the pond - I know mine doesn't :)
