I have had the same kind of pond for a long time. They hold up well, mines about 7-8 years old. In the summer I grow labrynth fish(no pump, stagnant water). These are also good for any kind of pond plants since theyre already acclimated to stagnant water. Good work on the danios! Im having so much fun with these that I bought 3 of them . Most of the time they look like yours.

A few weeks ago I put this wood in the pond to start it soaking so it may sink when I have time to use it in a couple of years

It's sticking out of the water like fingertips ATM. I'll have to get a picture for you guys. I think it looks a lot better with the wood.

Hey do you know what kind of plant this is? i found some at the base of a tree and transplanted it to my pond and it can look really nice when it drapes over rocks. It's very easy to transplant. All I had to do is just put a stem in the moist moss and voila roots a day or two later... The only thing though is that there is a short period of it being nice and big before it gets too hot then lanky looking but I think it's effect is worth the labor of cutting it back when it gets too big and removing it when it gets ugly during the very hot months of the summer.


Here is what that plant looks like on my pond, you can see it draping over the water:

I'm not sure what it is called, but it sure is a great plant.

Bloomed the other day.

I'll have to get a full picture up soon. The pond has come a long way and cherry shrimp have now taken over. They've successfully overwintered twice now.

I don't think it is an ice plant. I have delasperma cooperi growing from seed. The flowers are completely different.

You can see a ton of those plants now growing on my pond.

Hey CL checkout my post you just need an airstone that's all. All that fancy stuff they're throwing at you is useless unless you're filtering it and want it show quality. I dont filter mine water is crystal clear I threw in a crapload of guppies and a lot of plants moss too and that's it.

Yeah, the pond has been going great for a couple of years now and all I've ever had in it was the powerhead.

Got singapore moss? Was cleaning the pond this past weekend. Imagine my surprise when I grabbed a handful of moss when the resident frog jumped out!



Also, don't let cattails grow in your ponds. What a weed!

How cold does it get for you during the winter? You said your shrimp have overwintered twice? Do you throw in a heater or something for them
