Setting up a Pond?

I know its not really the season but how would you go about setting up a small pond (such as a barrel pond) or maybe not even a pond but a water container garden? If you want fish in it do you need to attach a filter?

Thinking of setting one up this spring.

This is a great discussion.. I hope someone can really provide useful info because we're planning to build a small pond with grotto in our backyard. We have no idea how to start, and still having second thoughts about it

Yes, you will need a filter. If the water isn't moving (like a stream) than you need to have something in there that is both filtering and a place for the necessary bacteria to set up shop and keep your fish healthy and happy... not to mention it halves the amount of times you have to clean the pond.

Yes, you will need a pond filter. Regardless of whether you want to have live fish and plants in your pond or not. You NEVER want to have stagnant water just sitting outside, as there are many issues arise from allowing the sun, weather and other outdoor elements affecting a pool of stagnant water. Not only do pond filters help to keep your pond water clean and prevent it from becoming cloudy or murky, but there are even certain filters that help to prevent the spread of bacteria and even the growth of algae. This is why there is a wide array of pond filters, pond skimmers and UV sterilizers available to help keep your pond looking great as well as to help with the health and well-being of your pond fish and plants. http://www.petco.com/N_45_4294956551/Pond-Filters-Pumps-and-Power-Heads.aspx&nbs...; Hope this helps!
