Need to change the design of the plant hangers...
Got a mini filter going from one of the bins of the other pond.

Some pond items have arrived!
New pond will have an aerator. And I'll probably be buying more matala mats, too. The other types are floppy and those are annoying to carry and clean.

Had a filter mishap and it drained half out. Turned water on and thought I got the leak, but didn't. So level didn't change, so 50% more water got changed out.
Fish were quite happy about that. Lol

Decided to put filters on the long side for now. Need 3" pipe to plug it in.

So cold and windy again!
I was terribly sick with an awful cold last week. Cold makes me cough out a lung...
Got most of the pieces cut and glued.
Will have to finish the section that goes into the pond tomorrow and then I should be able to turn it on!
Need to cut media, too.

Leaks, but not much I can do right now. Have to prime it with the other pump to get water in it and turn pump on while still using other pump.
