My first container pond, I think it's about 25 gallons or so. I have parrots feather, water wisteria, rotalla, and some java fern. I also put pond reeds in there too and some frogbit and duckweed. Yesterday I added three Platies, and a couple of Plecos. . I use a powerhead as a pump to circulate the water fall, and I do decent sized water changes every day.
