How to build a beautiful back yard pond and water feature cheaply

Needs differ between ponds that contain fish, which actively produce waste that is high in nitrogen, and ponds that contain only plants. A pump helps to keep water clear and full of oxygen, and it is necessary for a pond that has more than one or two goldfish, even if it has many plants. Buy the smallest pump you can for your small fish pond's needs, taking into account whether or not the pump has filtration capabilities and its likelihood of damaging fish.

Carp Lake, Trebon Picture: Small fishpond - Check out TripAdvisor members' 1337 candid photos and videos of Carp Lake. Between our garden and a rice field bond,
Father singly tried to dug a small fishpond.
Under the big trees without certain names,
Carried mud piled into a hill to play games.
Pond's water was soaked from the ditches,
Vegetables grew well without water hitches.

I have a pond 10ftx6ft with about 100 small fish in it I was away for 1day and night.
Came home to everyone of my fish gone, they have been in this pond for 8 years
Can I blame this on a heron ,or is there something more sinister in this loss of so many fish.

How to Build A Water Garden or Fish Pond - The Water Garden


Huilua Fishpond, in Kahana Bay on the Island of Oahu, illustrates the unique aquafarming practices of the Hawaiian people. Out of the estimated 97 fishponds once on the coast of Oahu, Huilua is one of only six that still exists. The Huilua Fishpond had a 500-foot rock seawall attached to the shoreline that encircled 7 acres of Kahana Bay near the mouth of Kahana Stream. The wall was 3 to 4 feet wide and stood 4 feet above high tide, with two gates that allowed smaller fish in and out of the pond, but kept bigger fish from escaping. Hawaiians were the only ancient Polynesian people to progress from tide-dependent fish trapping to controlled artificial fishponds, making their aquafarming the most advanced among the original peoples of the Pacific.By studying nature, Hawaiians understood that fish would gather in areas of current. Going with the ebb and flow of the fishpond’s water, Hawaiians were able to lure fish near the makaha. Small fish were able to enter the small slats of the makaha while larger fish were prevented from escaping. The design is ingenious!In this study we investigate the economic feasibility of a small-scale oyster farm based at a traditional Hawaiian fishpond in terms of production costs and current market prices. The breakeven price to achieve the desired return and the most limiting factor to production was determined. The profitability, sensitivity of input parameters, and the probability of different outcomes were also investigated.I want to start small with a middle sized fish pond. This was a super good read because I was just about to make a bunch of mistakes haha. Thanks for the super good comments too. I was wanting to keep tropical fish in the pond but heating it in the winter would be nearly impossible to do I guess.. sort of makes me sad but maybe I can find some cool cold water fish.
