    Thnx Frederick,

    The setup is quite simple and lowbudget. I got two 4000 l pumps running. one of them works like a skimmer filtering trough the plants at the surface, the other has a outflow into the bottom of a container. This way the water is pushed up trough some lava rocks and filtration material ending up in the higher part. Verry simple but quite effective.

    The pond is about 3 by 2 meters and 80 cm deep. There are about 12 golden orfe and a bigger Shubunkin in there, and loads of guests like salamanders and frogs. Also there should be a few gudgeons hiding in there.

    Verry cool pond you got there yourself, i'll go look for it in the ponds section. emoji106.png

    I notice the field behind in the background you live in the countryside. I live in the middle of the city. I bet that brings lots of wildlife. The pond looks good and effective. I have had a pond now gtetting on for 20 years now. I like the way you have done the upper parts of pond lovely
    All the best fred

    Yeah a few weeks after filling the pond there already were lots of animals taking shelter in there. I'm still amazed how some of them got there. When i took out some rocks i even found little shrimps in there, so feeding the fish also is quite low budget:D
