    I'm a newbie today. I got a nice invitation from CliffandJoann.

    We currently only have container watergardens, but actually have materials and plans to build a larger watergarden with a plant filter tub at the head of the waterfall. We also plan a deck at the bottom end with a trap door to service the pump (submersible) pit. Goldfish only, it won't be big enough to support koi.

    My husband and I live near Fort Worth, TX and are empty nesters. We have two children and five grandchildren ranging in age from 18 months to 10 years! We share our home with two big sturdy dogs and two cats, very spoiled. We also keep some (just a few) aquarium fish.

    I am an IT professional and hubby is a handyman.

    Hello and welcome, from a (sort of ) neighbor, also an empty-nester.
