The finished pond.
Some plants and a few goldfish finish of the project.
Water Hyacinth flowers are very beautiful but short-lived.
Half a whiskey barrel for less than $20 and a section of EPDM pond
liner from online wholesaler.
Liner is Forced in place by the weight of the water before its secured.
Thin oak strips and some brass screws hold everything in place.
Home-made undergravel filter and posts to hold up a plant shelf.
The first fall we bought a 20 gallon tank to bring the goldfish inside
The second year our 20 gallon tank was being used with our brackish fish
so we opted for a 35 gallon tote. Works great and was less than $15.
Here's all the goldfish in the plastic tote the first day. There kind of
scared of the new tank so they are all hanging together.
There are a total of 3 Shubunkins (1 not in picture) and 4 comet goldfish
(that were actually individually picked from the feeder goldfish tank for
12 cents each).
