Hmmm...or maybe I should call it our Redneck Fish Pond. ;-)
A friend gave us this 200-gallon galvanized stock tank and, at first, we had it down by the barn for the animals to drink out of. Well, it's really too tall for the goats and one horse just can't drink enough water to justify something so large. It would get icky and we kept having to drain it and clean it and that's a WHOLE lot of water to just dump out! So, Jerry thought it would be cool to make it into a fish pond in the back yard!
We put in a pump for aeration and added a couple of water plants.
My friend brought us this water lily last Sunday. :)
We got this one from the Koi fish guy at the Farmers' Market last week, I'm not sure what it is called. We have it sitting on some concrete blocks so that the fish have "caves" to play in.
We added a couple of goldfish and my friend who brought us the water lily is going to give us one or two more from her pond. (She has a REAL pond!)
The fish like hiding underneath the water lily. So, there ya' go, instant Cowboy/Redneck Fish Pond! LOL!! Linking up with Nancy and Lisa for Rural Thursday. Thanks ladies for hosting every week!!
