Re: Pond guidance needed #1
ADD on the previous post...

I have now read through the "Building your first pond" post and i found it very useful. Especially when i should add the fish and plants after filling the pond!
Some information i did not get though is whether my pump will be powerful enough to clean the pond, located here: http://www.for-sale.co.uk/pond-filter I'm not sure how to measure the amount of water the pond will hold though? i know how much water there is in a meter cube.....

Re: Pond guidance needed #4
When cleaning the filter to relieve it of material, this makes sense! And thanks for the pond water tip to clean the filter because i would have just used tap water..

Re: Pond guidance needed #6
When one realizes that he has posted about a pond on a fish tank forum ... genuinely sorry guys....

On the plus side i did own a salt water fish tank before the hold eels, Triggers, Lion fish, Clown fish, Tans, shrimp. Obviously i wen't through a learning curve when i started to add different fish to the tank, some times there where mass brawls. I ended up being really busy with work and had to give the tank away being that they need attention at least a couple times a week.

Pond guidance needed #7
Hello everyone,

I just want to start off by saying it is great to be here and that i am looking forward to speaking with you all. I have not long finished renovating my house and it is time to move onto the garden and make it as beautiful as possible. I am planning on adding a small pond with a small waterfall, but i'm not sure about a few things. After the pond is placed what is the kind of maintenance you have to keep up? I understand you have to clean the filter but how often? weekly, monthly, by-monthly? and living in the UK what species of fish would be best to start off with?. Some more details below.

Pond: 2m x 2m x 3ft
Pond plants: I think my wife will happily sort that
Pump: Fishmate Pressurized UV Bio Pond Filter

If there is any other information that you need just say and i will add it on...

Thanks guys

This is a picture of kinda what i am going for just a little bigger
