Well my in-ground pond hasn't progressed any and now I'm kind of moving houses so Rupert, my goldfish from the state fair, who has been living on my counter for months, needs a new home. A while ago I wanted to have a container pond which is what I'm going to do at this rental house. I don't have that much money to spend but I've been looking at these stock tanks.
Are there any opinions on plastic versus galvanized steel? I'm in Texas so it gets really hot and sunny. Also what kind of filter do you think I should get for it? I plan on keeping plants and some goldfish in it. Any tips are welcome Also how should I protect it against my cats, dogs, and other predators?
