I recently moved from the house to an apartment and decided to continue water gardening on our patio. Haven't yet added goldfish but hopefully soon I can run to the pet store and get some.

Get the fan tails. They stay small will fit well in your pond. I picked up some calico, white with red heads etc. For our hot tub pond.

That's larger than I thought! How man goldfish are you thinking about adding? I could see a few wiggly butt fantails in there for sure! Where are you located in North Texas??

Added some duckweed and fairy moss to the pond. Visited Creative Water Gardens in Garland, TX today and they helped me out.

That's where I've purchased my pond plants the last couple of years, the only other place I've found is Keller Farms in Haltom CIty but they're both a bit of a drive from the Denton area.

I used to buy my plants from Water Gardens Galore in Dallas before they shut down their retail store. That was a sad day when I learned they were closing down although I'm not surprised due to the type of area it was in. They sold the Neptunia Aquatica Sensitive Plants which were my favorite. Creative Water Gardens doesn't even have them or at least they didn't when I visited today.
