Of course, if you bring the walls up about 2 foot it will be easier to catch the fish. Then just add a curve in the wall with a fire pit and a curved viewing window... :-BD

This is a temporary shower and we made some water flow adjustments after the video.


When wood is soked in water, doesn't it become soft and more bendable?

Not really, certainly not when it is a 4 x 4, but when wood is bent is it all heated with the water first.

All of the fish have been moved to their temporary digs and they didn't skip a beat. We were able to set up 2/3's of the media from the pond in the shower and they are NOT going to be fed while they are on there.

On the existing pond there are three showers with Cermedia in them and they have lost a little volume, not much, but the issue is that it looks like some of them can be squashed with your fingers to the point of just being sand. I am not sure how much longer it would have lasted. The new pond is going to have a different type of shower filled with Momotaro Bakki Media. There will be more on that as we go along.

Scaled out a drawing of the pond to get a materials list for concrete forms, rebar and plumbing.

The artificial grass was pulled back and protected with plywood. The string line in the front is what all of the measurements were taken off of. The line is parallel to the back of the house. There is a benchmark that was placed on the steel pole that will be used for all depth elevations.

As the pond was drawing down one could only wonder what the evil mastermind was thinking...
