Setting up a goldfish or Koi pond can attract many forms of nature to your backyard. The primary thing to remember when setting up your pond is to take your time and plan the pond out so it doesn't become more of a headache than an enjoyable experience for you. Think about what you want to keep in your pond, such as koi, goldfish, plants, snails, etc. If you want to keep plants then keeping Koi will most often prove to make this more difficult as Koi like to dig in dirt and often eat plants. Goldfish, however, seldom bother plants.
