More pics! Everything has gone well except that the filter I bought from Lowes intermittently begins to leak. I notice the water level is low, tighten the lid, and the leak stops. I need to find a replacement filter.

The pickerelweed is blooming:

Wow, I missed all the updated photos somehow till now. What a gorgeous pond! That is about the size I want to build and you did such an amazing job on it. I love the rocks around it now! Are those very expensive? I wanted some like that to go around my hopefully future pond. ;)

The fish are so pretty too! If only they knew how pretty their home is. lol Lucky little guys/gals. ;)

I bought a half-pallet of stone for about $115 and it covered what you see. I used larger chunks of stone under the waterline to fill up space faster and leave room for fish to hide.

I upgraded to a TetraPond 1500 filter, and that allowed me to upgrade to 1.5 inch hoses. Wow! The rate of water flow has drastically increased. You can now hear the water bubbling through the stream, and I feel like the pond water is being cycled much more often. The new filter is larger and more difficult to hide, but it is not leaking at all and is easier to maintain. I guess just like everything else you get what you pay for.
