Aww! That would have been awesome! The pond owners have a bunch of little kids that love looking at the fish. I just feel back because they are always hiding and there are only 4!

What are the pump and filter size? It looks like it's a good pump the waterfall is really going.

Hey thanks FIT BMX! I would love to add some lilies, but unfortunately, since the pond is only a little over one foot deep, I don't think that they would fair well. I am probably going to give them a try anyway though.

As far as filteration and such, I am not sure about the filter size. I am pretty sure it is made by EasyPro though. Media wise, there the waterfall container is filled with bagged lava rock and some misc. mechanical media.

I do not any more pictures at the moment... but if all goes as planed, I should have plenty later today!
