Welcome to the Forum, Lotust1. Nice job! Looks nice. What kind of Bio filter do you have?

Just got my pond filtered finally. I went with a tetra 1500 bio and a 9w tetra UV

Very nice indeed! Some nice pond plants around it to make it even more natural looking will really make it stand out. Bamboo, Papyrus, Taro and a few others are what I use around mine.

Thats a good idea. I think I will add some bamboo in some pots around the pond. I like the Taro idea too thanks. :)

Keep in mind that some bamboo are "runners", be careful to get "clumpers". Taro is a runner, but much easier to control. I have a lot of it and it has become my biggest seller next to water lettuce.
