Crispy, this pond is soooo nice. I love the waterfall, love the pond so far......heck, I love your whole yard. It only took Smaugs pond a year to fill in a ton with lots of plants and yours will really be kickin' it by this time next year. Big job but so worth it, huh?

Looks great so far, that waterfall will provide plenty of O2 saturation in the water.

Love the pond. I like white contrast on the red makes it really pop.

Thanks all! There is 4 small koi in the pond atm.

LH> yeah, it was a big job and a ton of work. Built the entire thing for only $330 (including slate/mulch/plants). My parents absolutely love it.

Still some small things to do like maximize gph by cutting the hose down a bit and hide the bucket filter a little better. But all in all, it's running beautifully!

That looks great!! Good job and I am jealous!

supposed to get a few doz rosy reds this weekend and more pond plants to come. The pump cost accounts for half the $$$ we put into it. Everyone's very pleased with it and it should only get better.

Thanks all!! :1luvu:
