A raccoon paid a visit to my barrel pond last year and wiped out all my poor fishes. It came back every day to check out if there were any new treats until I installed the electric wire. It got zapped soon after then it never came back again. All the fishes are happy ever after.:proud:

How is the plant mounted in the barrel? Floating? in a pot on the bottom?

When you look at the second picture, you can see there is a frame in the barrel. I made a PVC ring frame as big as the inner diameter of the barrel and jammed in there. I then tied up a few more straight PVC tubes to make a frame just to hold the plant pot and the fountain. Hope this helps.
