Container pond thread

I wanted to make a thread that all of us could share our container or mini ponds on. Regular ponds pics are welcome too!

Heres my introduction:

Container ponds are one of the easiest ponds to set up In My Opinion. Very Peaceful and relaxing. Also affordable (Inexpensive). Fish and plants can go in them, but I leave that stuff alone. Maybe soon I will get some plants.

First, I got a clay pot (Glazed and Brown) without any hole (Holes would of had to of been filled up). Second, I bought a pump (130 GPH). Third, I bought a large fountain nozzle kit. Once put all together, I added some aquarium gravel that I had laying around (This is to keep the pump stable).

I will get some pics soon!

I'm not sure what you are talking about, but I'm interested to see. Sounds like your saying you have a pond inside a clay planter pot.

OK, I get it now. I was thinking it was in small pots, like maybe 10-12" planters. Do you have little ones like that as well, or you just find large containers like the one above?

Small pots are the ones most commonly used when it comes to container ponds. The one chad had looked like it was made out of a water trough.

That container pond is awesome! My M-in-L would like a pond but isn't sure because she has a small garden and two little dogs. I think something like this would be perfect for her!!!

i have 6 tubs set up currently, they are all 18-20g cheapos. Would probably look a lot better buried in the ground, but I'm lazy =[

Mainly using them for growouts.

Looks good, GG! What do you do with it in the winter?

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!
