sissy submitted a new Showcase Item:

sissys pond

My pond is 11 years old and still the original fish and only have added a second filter and rebuilt the other filter bigger .I use lava rock in my filters and use plants in them to soak up all the good stuff the fish put out .I knew nothing about ponds when I started but figured I would learn ast time went by .

I think rectangular ponds are easier to put liner in as all you need is the folds in the corners ..The one wall I could not do straight because there is a drain pipe from the gutter that i was not going to dig up .
