|Miles||How's the pond looking now?|

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.

|Zefrik||How is this pond made? I really like it is there a liner or is it concrete and sealed?|

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!!!

Nice Jake! That's cool that you're going to be taking care of a friend's pond.
Keep the pictures coming.

|mistergreen||Too bad it's not a deep pond so you can leave the golds there over the winter. I hear the Wisconsin Winters are pretty nasty.|

|bigboij||looks good, i think terrestrial scaping around it would bring it out the best. with some assorted riparium style plants in the water to soften up the edges a bit|

I have all the planting materials and baskets ready as well.
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!

Lilies and lotuses would look great in this pond, given it's shape and size. The pond looks about 12" deep. do you have more photos?
What are the pump and filter size? It looks like it's a good pump the waterfall is really going.

|Capsaicin_MFK||Looks like a fun project. Planning on using some riparium plants? Too bad we northern state people can't enjoy year-round outdoor ponds... :/|
