So its still a work in progress, but its getting done! Let me know what you think of the pics and give me some input on what I did right/wrong or what you would do different. I didn't have a great place to put it, but wanted to build one so I can figure them out and maybe sell pond installation eventually. Its 3' 4'' at the deepest and I made natural shelves out of the large tree roots I dug it around. I had to build up the level on the sides and decided to include the wall block under water...It gives the small fish places to hide. I have a few bass in a tank inside I will move out when I'm finished working on it. I already put so gambusa fish in there so they could start multiplying for food source for the bass. Its about 425 gallons. I bought a Beckett W1150 pump from home depot yesterday and started flowing water, unfortunately I washed a whole bunch of clay in there so I'm waiting on it to settle out so the water is clear again. There's a few people on craigs list with free plants I'm going to get and I think I'll take some from the large pond at school tonight. I still need to pick up a skimmer one day this week. The pond supply place near here closes early and I work late and go to school at night. I'm collecting most of the stones for the waterfall part from a friend's creek. The smaller stones are pond stones from home depot. I was thinking of adding more height to the waterfall area and make more steep drops for the sound effect. I don't know if it would look funny if I built it up another foot or so...?? I still have a lot to do!!! Thanks for looking and any comments!
