    You know what would of been so cool if you had a 3/4 glass in the front so you can see whats going on the pond..

    hey just wondering how u got the pcv piping to go up through the bottom?

  4. lynda46 says:

    A well looked after koi soon grows, that means this pond is too small for koi. But its a great pond for goldfish.

    @jlndb. yeah that would work

  6. jlndb says:

    Oh, 1 more question. Is the pre-drill 1/4 for the 5/16 spike?

  7. Bradfisher1 says:

    @MegaPlanelover, the water is only 50 degrees… they more active in the summer months when the water is 70-75degrees

  8. Bradfisher1 says:

    @tekka84, It is actually just pea gravel, sand works but I have found that anytime you need to move a plant then it just clouds up the water for a day or so…

    @Sapphiretri, thanks if you have any questions I would be glad to help…

  10. Bradfisher1 says:

    @jlndb , The corners have held up very well, every corner of every layer of wood has a 8″ x 5/16″ spike as well as gorilla glue.

  11. jlndb says:

    I just wondering how does the corner hold up?

  12. Sapphiretri says:

    This set up is now going to be the set up I use once I move into a house. It looks so simple and best part of not having to build into the ground and risk hitting pipes you never knew about. I am glad you posted this online.

  15. tekka84 says:

  16. Bradfisher1 says:

    Hey i just wanted to let you know you created more than just a pond!
    You also made an aquaponic setup by accident!
    Add some *redworms* into the gravel, and you will never have to clean the gravel :] They will eat the fish poop and make it even better fertilizer for the plants.
    As for the plants, grow anything you’d like! Tomatoes would grow great in that XD (aslong as the water has enough oxygen, and you lower the water level in the “filter” a bit)

    @joseph19699, yes I wnt throught the liner, I got a bulkead fitting off ebay for less than 5 dollars

  23. Bradfisher1 says:

    @bobosthenewdude, I used a 4′ x 8′ 3/4″ plywood, you could go thinner since basically all it is used for was makeing the pond square…..

  24. bobosthenewdude says:

    what did you use for the lower pond’s base?

  25. Bradfisher1 says:

    @bobosthenewdude, i just ripped a peice of 3/4″ exterior plywwod.
