Well a good freind of ours (family) just got a new 165gall pond with a 15-20gall smaller "waterfall" area. I went to their house yesterday and gave them a bunch of tips, then we went and got some new plants.
it went from this
their are the 4 hostas around the pond, then in the pond is an iris, lizard tail (not crazy about it, but the husband wouldnt put it down
) a water lilly, some water sprite, and some hornwort. they also put about 4 goldies in there (it has cycled). I cant wait to see this "kick off"
