    Well check out my two simplistic ponds. The 300 gal has butterfly koi and feeders, the koi's are a recent addition. My 80 gal on the other hand has goldfish, feeders, rosy red minnows, and mosquito fish.

    The pond is cool but the extention cord over the larger pond makes me nervous.

    Where did you get those containers and what was the cost. That big one is perfect for a hospital pond.

    Well the extension cord is for my pump in the smaller 80 gal pond. The reason I have one is that the pump I have had a very short cord. So I took a 10ft extension cord, electrical tape and put eveything together.

    Well to be honest I have no idea where the pond shells came from. The reason is that these shells were my uncle's when he used to breed koi back in the day. Um I know of a pond store that sell similar shells that has a thick hull of plastic for its shell and a steel frame. But the pond store is in san Gabriel, California.
