Regular maint. is mandatory on small container ponds. Mine is about 25gl. I do a 6gl water change every other week. and a monthly filter cleaning (rinse out the sponge).

My is only planet with aquarium plants planted in clay pots.

OP - I suggest to try a few other Aquarium plants other than the java fern.
I have other aquarium plants in there: rotala, ludwigia, and water wisteria. there's also a little bit of dwarf sag, and some frogbit and pennywort.
