I have began work on my pond. Here is where its going to go and some of my Designs and plans. Let me know what you think.
Heres where its going to go. The water fall is going to start at where the pole is.

Here are some rocks that I have gathered to go in and around the pond.

I already have dug out the poles in the above pictures. And have started the main pond.

Here are some rough designs of what I am planning.
Aerial View.

Side view of water fall

Their will be a pond at the top of the water fall about a foot and half in diameter. Their will also be a fountain filter at the top. It will start about 2 feet up and work its way down through three pools and end in a small stream which will carry the water about two feet and drop it into the pond. And I am still looking for a good filter pump to pump the water to the top.
Heres the Foutain Filter Im looking at.
The Stocking plan is
4-6 koi
2 comets
6 crawdads
alot of snails
alot of scuds

Seems like a nice design! So are you gonna stock it with koi and lillypads?
I like the arial view design, and the waterfall idea.
Hope it turns out good! thumbs2:

What are the dimensions going to be. If its going to be out in the open, depending on where you live it need to be 3 ft deep. Kritters will scarf your live stock. Laguna pumps and filters are great for waterfall set-ups. Keep us posted.
