    Raised Pond

    I got tired of the indoor tank setup and go out of the limb and started this raised pond for the Top View Ranchu goldfish.
    These goldies are the Oishi strain born on 06/2015. They are actually the BBR just turned CBR.

    Still waiting for the lotus to shoot up out of the water. They were grown from seeds so might take a few more months.








    Edit:

    Here is the video of the goldies.

    They were given to me as part of the trimmings from a friend. The parrot feathers, water lettuce, duck weed, frog bits are growing very fast. It doesn't take much for them to overtake my pond. You can find a lot of pond plants at the local nursery if you ask them. Even my local HomeDepot can do special order. I also found Green Thumb Nursery in Lake Forest have quite a selection.

    I will make it brief but let me know if you have questions on anything specific.

    The pond is a 120gallon fiber glass trough 9'L and 1' high. I specifically wanted this shallow depth for the Top View Ranchu goldfish and I do not have any plan for keeping Koi. The taller box you see is my bog filter setup and the water is being fed by a 900gph pump. This simple raised pond setup has been great so far because it only get partial sun about 2 hours in a day. I'm not a pond expert but was just trying to share my little setup to get this pond section some life. I will try to take/post more pictures later this week.

    Cool pond. I built a small raised patio pond also. Still working on the plants though.
