I can't call this a pond *LOL* I don't have room in my little garden for a pond but did find room for this little water garden. It isn't finished yet but getting there. We started out we were just gonna set it on the ground but started digging a little & it ended almost all the way down.
I'm not crazy about the color but was all the store had. My garden does have bright colored flowers so guess it fits in there. I put the black edging around it to keep the rocks from falling in but may remove it, not sure. We put 4 feeder fish in it.. left for 1 1/2 hours & then there was 3 with no signs of it. There is quite a few cats around but we have a short fence around the garden & I have never seen one in it, there's always a 1st time. We got a little water grass in it today so that should help. How warm can the water get & still be safe? The water was about 90° today but the fish looked happy. The air was 100°..VERY hot. We still need to bury the cord & put more larger rocks. We have a small pond to put in the front but sure DH will wait for it to cool a little before he starts digging. He is already talking about also putting in a larger pond but may change his mind after digging for the small one.
If anyone has ideas to improve it let us know as we are just learning :)
The water is low in the picture as we had water running down the water can spout but I think we have that problem solved (hope so) and it is now filled back up.
