What do I need? #1
Since my bro and sis-in-law are too busy having a baby, they are leaving the planning of their pond up to me because I'm an 'expert' apparently
My bro has given me some very vague measurements and I've estimated his pond to be about 400-450 gall.
Question is, what stuff do I need to get?
I know I need a pump and a filter but I'm kind of stumped He wants a waterfall thing by the way. I'm so going to kill him for this

Re: What do I need? #9
Well some of the hard work has been done, I think my bro has dug down about 6-12 inches
He's going to have a pond digging party which he has generously invited me and Scott to (just remembered he didn't help us dig our pond, that's why it's so small )
So I'll take the camera along and see if he won't mind his pond being used in a blog (actually, I'll force him to do it )
