AGUILAR3 update?

How are you able to keep anything in there with 3200gph flow in a 100g container?....especially with shrimp.

annyann Looking forward to some spring updates on your pond!

CL I never change the water, I just do too offs if the water level is getting kinda low.

It actually gets pretty cold here, I think due to the fact that the container is partially buried, and because it's right next to the house it doesn't freeze completely through.

Roshan8768 How cold does it get for you during the winter? You said your shrimp have overwintered twice? Do you throw in a heater or something for them

elo500 How often do you do water change?

CL Got singapore moss? Was cleaning the pond this past weekend. Imagine my surprise when I grabbed a handful of moss when the resident frog jumped out!

Also, don't let cattails grow in your ponds. What a weed!

CL Yep. It's been running non-stop since I got it. Outdoors at that

The Italian Nazi Hey CL, is that Sunsun knock-off powerhead still running alright? Im looking into possibly getting one.

And Pics! Let's see a full pond shot please! Hahaha

CL Yeah, the pond has been going great for a couple of years now and all I've ever had in it was the powerhead.

menoseloso Hey CL checkout my post you just need an airstone that's all. All that fancy stuff they're throwing at you is useless unless you're filtering it and want it show quality. I dont filter mine water is crystal clear I threw in a crapload of guppies and a lot of plants moss too and that's it.

I don't think it is an ice plant. I have delasperma cooperi growing from seed. The flowers are completely different.

You can see a ton of those plants now growing on my pond.

CL Bloomed the other day.

I'll have to get a full picture up soon. The pond has come a long way and cherry shrimp have now taken over. They've successfully overwintered twice now.

Hey do you know what kind of plant this is? i found some at the base of a tree and transplanted it to my pond and it can look really nice when it drapes over rocks. It's very easy to transplant. All I had to do is just put a stem in the moist moss and voila roots a day or two later... The only thing though is that there is a short period of it being nice and big before it gets too hot then lanky looking but I think it's effect is worth the labor of cutting it back when it gets too big and removing it when it gets ugly during the very hot months of the summer.

Here is what that plant looks like on my pond, you can see it draping over the water:
