    Default What I left in California 12 years ago!

    This WAS my water garden in California before I move to Hawaii in 2004.

    Actually, this was part of my Koi Pond filter (12' x 10' x 4') and I had two of these. In addition I had a smaller one 8' x 6' x 5' ... and a mechanical filter!

    I would have left it to move to Kauai if I had the chance and resources.

    Wow very nice. I have often thought of putting one in but have never done it. I agree with Harvey, I would also leave it to move to Hawaii
