i got some lillies for mine,they looked awful when they turned up,
shoddy cuttings,if ever i saw,however they look to have taken,
so i'm looking forward to seeing if they colour the way they were shown in the listing.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

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.

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

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.
