shoddy cuttings,if ever i saw,however they look to have taken,

Yeah, 3 butterfly Kois (I know they will eventually outgrow my pond, going to donate them to a lovely Japanese garden with an enormous lake when they do) and 2 Shubunkin goldfish. I can take pics but we are going to redo the rocks around it (to hide the plastic edge) and the cattails are barely coming out of the root ball so far.

I LOVE the white one you have!! My pond doesn't have near the footprint yours has but mine is 3 1/2 ft deep.

Ok, so even though we are not done (LOL!) I went ahead and took some pics of the pond. Don't want to hijack your thread so here is the link: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/vivarium-pond-pictures-videos/pics-my-pond-waterfall-71586/#post686925

going to go back outside after dark and take pics with the landscape lights on

It looks awesome!!! :D and I need to find a way to hide my liner too :) the White one is probably the most confident o them and will come about 1foot away and you can just pop the food next to him:D tue man in the garden centre took a while catching him hehe

I'm not sure I was trying to think of a way of covering the liner...any ideas ? And my parents went to the garden centre to day and I went along and ended up buying a yellow and black koi :D

ooooo that koi sounds nice.
hmmm ok well what about some other water plants,like some sort of grasses,reeds ?
and also would you consider planting around the outer edge with some creeping plants,
that would eventually dip into the water perhaps.
