    I'm an American living in the southern Englsh countryside in a small village. We happily inherited a small pond (10x5) when we bought the cottage last year. I've always wanted a pond and am an absolute beginner in pond keeping! Have been studying. Had the pond cleaned and installed a new pump and filter.

    Hello and welcome
    In pond keeping can be a lot of work, but also the most enjoyable.
