Thanks. I'm hoping to get more plants in there and some more driftwood. Most of what is in there is going into my 55 gallon when the other stuff that is in there finally sinks. Right now it's hard to find plants still.

Bathtub pond is doing pretty well. I dumped excess water wisteria in there and it seems to be doing well. The snails were keeping the duckweed down, but now that summer has happened it seems to be winning the battle. All in all things are doing well. The guppies are reproducing really well. There is probably 10 or more adult ones and a bunch of little babies. The strangest thing is I have also seen some shrimp swimming around in there. I never added them. Some little ones must have been hanging onto the duckweed when I dumped it in there. Also, the apple snails have laid eggs on one side of one of the terra cotta pots. Do I do anything or just let them be? Thanks.

That looks incredible.

You can make a floating circle with some airline tubing so you can enjoy your fish while feeding them at the same time.

That's cool. I have actually never fed the fish in this pond. They just eat whatever falls in the pond I guess.

The pond is doing very well. Here is some video of it where you can actually see some fish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs7ika8uiEA

So far the temps have been holding very well. It hasn't yet gotten above 95 but the temp rarely gets over 75 in the pond so I think it will be alright.

Love everything about this pond. Especially now that you posted a vid. BTW, that shrimp photo bomb was epic. Its like he knew the camera was rolling.
