My First Pond......Q's before I start

Recommended Posts

Afternoon People,

 

Scored a freestanding pond yesterday for $0.  It's 1400 x 320 mm (round).  I want to try a no pump, no filter pond and have read a bunch of stuff and just after some recommendations on how much plant mass I will need.  Also for a pond this shallow what fish would be suitable and in what sort of quantities as I imagine a filter-less pond you don't want to overstock.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

 

cheers

Natives would work

Blue-Eyes, rainbows, gudgeons....6 of each would be plenty

or White cloud mountain minnows, rosy barbs, Paradise fish

A few marginals in pots....they'll soon take off in summer

perhaps some Hortwort
