The person that built that pond would be referred to as 'Koi Kichi'. Such a person will, without regard to expense, put in the most complicated system for maintaining 'pristine?' water conditions for a fish that is at its happiest rooting around in the mud at the outflow of a sewage treatment facility.

Here's one that looks more like a variation of a Celtic Knot.

Yea. The guys over on the Irrigation Forum in the "Hacks and Pikers" thread just think that they have a monopoly on 'Creative Plumbing".

the pond building

That pond building brings a new definition to the phrase. I suppose it is the physical plant for the building. Or perhaps this is a monument to man's fantasy of beating the #@&@#&@# out of nature.
