    Hi-

    I've been browsing since this spring, finally posted on a thread, figured I'd better get a note here before I get yelled at. ;-)

    I'm in Central MA. . . put in a "gifted" hardshell that I'm guessing at 500-600 gallons. Replaced the gifted pressure filter with a skippy style upflow filter in a cut down (for visibility) 55 gal plastic drum. Using AC filter and strapping. Waterfall and short stream. .. pictures up in a few weeks when I get back from vacation!

    The rock edge you have looks great, having the rocks come out away from the pond helps in the natural look. And the multiple sizes, it takes a lot of little rocks with a few big to look natural.
