    Small "turtle" pond.
    Its only 5 feet at its widest, 15 feet long and 3 feet deep. It's got an Ultima II filter and a Performance Pro pump.

    These were taken just after i turned it on for the first time, so the plants hadn't had time to grow in. The water fall is kind of a funky pic.. use your imagination.

    Nice! I like it!

    My only question is; why did you chose that huge out-of-ground pond pump? A small little giant wgp95 pump (http://www.koiscapes.com/subcat217.html) would have more than sufficed and would have always stayed totally hidden. Also, less noisy.

    1.they wanted easy maintenance.
    2. didnt want to have to worry about cleaning a messy filter.
    3. wanted to really stock the pond with turtles and fish.

    That brand pump that i used makes hardly any noise, and its totally energy efficient, not alike a pool pump. I hate using little submersible pumps. They seem to always get clogged with algae and other debris.

    thanks for the complements,..,
