You had a lovely tranquil environment, especially looking at the first pic.

Hi Stumble, you should know that you may not post pics of a pond without details of filtration ...

and because you have not declared where you are from, you will have to go to this thread and produce as punishment: My first pond Lol

Filtration on a pond? I never had any on my first gold fish pond. When i mailed some uk dealers about filtration for my "pond" they said....just replace all the water weekly. geek

Okay I wasnt that bad. lol. see how clear the water was.
I got fed up with the sand filter clogging, so took out the sand, and replaced with bio filter media.

so I had small pump>sand filter with no sand>uv light>pond
and .75 pump>1000lt home made bio filter>pond.
... no settlement chamber so the maintenance on these filters was huge and time consuming, but my water was always perfect and in all my years never had a sick fish. bom

oh forgot to say, one small bottom drain 50mm and it worked. tongue
