Here is my container pond. It is the first one I have tried. Let me know what you think.
Before planting and filling.
The pots with holes drilled in the bottom to let the roots go into the pond.
The pots are first filled with this large gravel.
Then they are capped with schultz.
Here are the water plants. It is mostly Rotola with a few stems of ludwigia and star grass. All the plants were taken from my 55G tank during trim time this weekend.
Next came the bog plant, a Cala Lilly. From what I have read, they can be grown this way. I hope that is correct.
Here is the container filled. Along with a closer look a the aquatic plants.
