    Thumbs up Holy Moly!

    Boy, I go away for 20 hours and the ride started without me. Can't really add anything here. You did what you all had to do.

    To the little s---

    I have been reading this c--- about you and your hole in the rock and I thought I would be above all of this and stay out of it but I just have to suggest that if the US Army would take a 17 year old, a platoon sgt. could straighten you out in about one hour. It would seem to me that you could be of more use in Iraq and that might let some more worthy youngster stay in the US and grow up to be a contributing citizen. Just an old f---- opinion, Mac

    Hey lildude,
    How bout a bog pond?

    Drawing of how it works:


    Plants will act as your filter and creating a natural ecosystem. You can get plants from your local nursery or from any stream/pond in the area.

    This type of landscaping is tricky as many native and non-native plants can become invasive in aquatic conditions. Do a little research and choose the right plants for your area. Contact your agricultural center and see what plants are invasive. These are the plants you probably don't want much of.

    Good luck and hope to see your pond functioning properly.

    Pondscum-

    Welcome, Whitey, to Bito, but you have missed the point entirely. Look around a bit and you will see that LilPoop has been in many threads telling others what they should do with their filtration, and how to improve their ponds, advice that he has not been able to implement at home, prompting questions from others that he refused to answer. Kinda pondscummy and slippery of him, don't you think, new guy?

    If you think that plants filter water in a way that could provide the same benefits that a proper koi pond filter system would, you are wrong. You don't really think this is a new idea here do you?

    Fill in some info in your profile so we can know a little bit about you.

    Shiro, it is 100% impossible to create a "natural ecosystem" in a closed, liner pond system. That is a popular selling gimic for the rock-bottom pond people. A natural eco system has a constant exchange of water going on and our ponds do not. A bog filter only traps all the crud we want to eliminate, but does not remove it from the water column. It's still there, providing bacteria and parasites with prime breeding grounds.

    Another problem with bog filters is if the fish ever needed to be treated for parasites, the mass of organics in the bog would render nearly all treatments useless before they ever got around to killing the parasites they were intended for.

    Bog Pond........while it sounds lovely.and looks great.it is not a koi pond. Putting gold fish, minnows etc. it will work wonderfully.

    Water gardens are lovely to look at, just never confuse the two.

    Mickey..lol.......

    Cindy, as usual.....

    Please read the entire thread. That should answer your question.

    Do it after school, when you have lots of time. It's not a 30 second thread.
