I was thinking of convincing my Mother to let me set up a tub pond some where in the backyard, but I need so information.
I was thinking of using a large flower pot (if there should be a drainage hole in the bottom I would silicon it) and keeping some minnows.
I am not sure about filtration but I was thinking of using hardy submerged and floating/above water plants and doing water changes. If I can find a inexpensive pump thing I would add a fountain in the middle.
Does this seem like a reasonable idea? I was thinking that I would just bring the fish in during the winter, and since there isn't really any predators they wouldn't be in to much danger.
P.S Would rain water have any affect on them? Would collecting rain water for water changes and replacing evaporated water?
