Talking Container pond- submerged plants

Was curious if anyone else is doing anything like this. I built a 250g-ish container pond out of cinder blocks, ended up halving two ibc totes and placing them around it. 30g barrel filter in the center, 18w UV, 1350gph pump, and pressurized co2.

It's still a work in progress. I managed to get one of the containers planted out, and I'll be working on the others as time goes by.
Here's a pic of when I was still setting it up. I put some downspouts on the overflows as well as some short pieces of tubing to minimize surface disturbance.

Here's a video.

Sweet, wish I could get growth like that. I have some rotala in my pond, but it's hardly doing a thing. Maybe I need more fish...hehehe

At the moment all I have in this system is a half dozen jewel cichlids. Planning on putting some longear sunfish, bluespotted, and dollars in the different containers. Possibly some warmouth and crappie if I can find some while I'm out.
