Isaac's 400 Gallon Goldfish Pond

Isaac's 400 Gallon Goldfish Pond, DIY, low budget.


I finally got water in and fish in my pond. Some of you may remember my "test fish" forum post but I am back with an update on my pond. I ended up removing the water and liner to change up the look of the pond a bit a move around some dirt. I ended up with a shape me and my parents liked. After that, we added some fish caves and rocks and got the water in. After a day I got another 2, 30 cent feeder fish to throw in. Once again to see if they live overnight. They made it! I also ended up buying 6 Shubunkin and put them in the next day. They made it too! So I put in the mother load. Make sure to watch the videos below.
