Trail_Mix Are you planning on getting this going again this summer? The design looks super cool! If you go with the smaller pond up top, you could put some smaller fish that you'd like to breed as they will go crazy over the summer! And what type of vegetation are/were you planning on using for the filtration and just in general?

Any updates to this?
Unfortunately its the rainy season actually and it's quite difficult to continue with the project. I was also occupied doing a planted tank with MTS. Will post a thread about it.

Pri Unfortunately this projet stopped since visitors at home and don't have enough time to keep it going. Will be working on it by end January : not much work left : need to finish the small waterfall and do some painting and rock scaping in the river...then switch on the pump and have cocktail on my terrace with the sound of flowing and falling water...

SleepyOwl It looks lovely. I like how you have it on the upper level, and the waterfall down to the lower level. The plants are lovely.

River with many rocks lying around - tring to sort them to build a cool waterfall. I would prefer to have more flat rocks, but can't find enough of those.
