      My Pandemic Project Pond Build

      Long time reader. First time poster. I spent a lot of time on forums and YouTube sorting out what and how I wanted to build my pond. I have to admit there were some changes along the way and I'm not 100% I would tackle this again on my own. It was A LOT of work. It does feel good to have it built now though!

      For our "pandemic project" I built a pond using what would have been our vacation funds since that was canceled. It's ~500 gallons (6'x12'x18") with a 1' waterfall and 1' mini-stream over small rocks to help oxygenate the water. It has a skimmer with OASE pump and Pressure filter good for 2K GPH. I didn't rock the walls or bottom of the pond to make it easier to clean, but it does have a rock boarder holding down the liner. I have three lights installed one of which is half in/out of the water to light up the waterfall at night. You can actually spot it in the last pick in the middle of the pond. It gets 3-4 hours of sun in the morning and we are enjoying coming up with plants that will work in the space as much as we like picking out the goldfish to swim in the pond. Albeit finding plants that do well with that little sun is a challenge. I know it doesn't look like it, but that's over 4 tons of rock!
