My Barrel Pond
About 9 months ago I used a half whiskey barrel to start a small pond in my backyard. I got the barrel from Home Depot so it needed to be cleaned out and soaked before I could use it for fish. I added all the photos I have of how the set up went to my photo album here on the forum. Here's the link: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/m...rel-pond-1597/
If any of you have any questions about setting up one of your own please do not hesitate to ask!
That's very lovely, nice work. I have thought about something like this, but unfortunately I have raccoon in my neighbourhood, and they decimate my pond every summer, even though I have not had fish in it for several years. Any water source becomes a magnet, especially when a female has a couple of kits. They also love to eat those plants [found that out when I had them along with a group of common goldfish in my pond].
That's so nice! I'll have to check out your link and see if it's something easy enough that even I can make. (Pretty challenged in that area!)
Its very pretty my husband has plans to build a screened in porch this year maybe I will try it and put it on there. I would have the same problem with the raccoons as Byron if I try to do it with out the screened in porch. Do you think it would be okay to put a heater in it during the winter to keep it from freezing?
If you have somewhere you can plug a heater in you could put one in easily. Its only about 35 gallons so you can use a regualr aquarium heater, just make sure to get a thermometer so you can keep an eye on the temperature. Goldfish dont like warm water so keep it under 70 degrees.
It's very easy to set up you just need patience. It takes longer to set up than a regular aquarium (about 2-3 months)
