I'd get them a big Rubbermaid tote or go to a farm store and get a watering trough of some sort.

I might be moving this summer to my mom's house where I grew up, she's moving to a new house and giving me her house, so I want to build a pond. Nothing big, 500g or so. I'd like it deep enough to be able to leave the fish in though. I need to do lots of research first because I have no idea about ponds other than they are awesome when done right.

hydrophyte That is fun. I like the formal rectangular shape.

It's a liner, with plastic in/out flows.

FIT BMX Almost all lilies( even the biggest of hardy lilies) will grow very nicely in just 6" of water. A lutes will grow with just 1 or 2" of water above the crown of the plant, or some even with the crown just above the water like in a bog.
Good luck, and keep a close watch on the kids when they are around the pond!!!

The landscaping company is in charge of that, and I don't think they are going to do anything. So, I'll just have to do what I can!

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!

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!
