I know, I can't wait to get fish and plants in..... need new hose to fits better on the filter as it's leaking right. I want flex pvc as it fits best for leak free connections. I plan to start cutting back the liner as the pond has been sitting full now for 3 days.

Pond filled 1900 gph pump and box pre-filter is in, pressurized filter is in, liner is mostly cut back and starting to place stones to cover the liner. Will take me awhile to finish off the landscaping, will post some pics tomorrow on progress. Planning on adding fish, and plants in about 3 weeks.

Some progress. Pond filled, pump and box per-filter installed. Trimmed liner and placed some rocks to see how it looks. Lots more work and rocks and landscaping to finish the edges but thought I would post some progress.

Ordered some silk plants to help cover the liner while I wait for aquatic plants to grow.

I will add fish end of the month. Likely some shubikns and small KOI

marginals are in now, 3 water lilys are at the bottom about 3.5' down so they will take awhile to reach the surface.

added another 2 inch Koi that the GF picked out. Tomorrow hope to work on the stream.
