How to Make a Mini Pond
A mini pond solves the problem for those who want a pond but have minimal space. A mini pond is easy to make and upkeep and can hold a few of your favorite water plants and small fish.
Find a suitable waterproof container or basin.It should measure about 20 centimeter (7.9 in) long and 20 centimeter (7.9 in) wide and 10 centimeter (3.9 in) deep.
Clean the container under the running water for 1 minute.Do not use soap as it might harm the fish. Dry it with a clean cloth, or air dry quickly.
Choose where to have the pond.If it is to be in the garden, dig a suitable small hole and insert the container into the ground. Other possibilities include simply balancing the container somewhere on the back deck or ground, creating a wooden holding stand for it or placing onto a table or similar raised item. Whatever you do, ensure that the placement is stable and firm and that it cannot be knocked over by people, pets or roaming animals.
- If you have cats, you will need to either prevent their access to the small container pond or cover it carefully with netting or chicken wire.
Pour the gravel into the container.Fill it to a depth of about 2 centimeter (0.8 in).
Fill up half the container with dechlorinated water.
Add plants.Dig a small hole and fit the plant's roots. Use more gravel to cover the plant roots and planting area.
- Repeat until you have added all of the plants.
Add decorations.Wash and scrub all the decorations in warm water. Once cleaned, add them into the container as desired.
Wash and scrub the rocks in warm water.Add the rocks in.
Fill up the rest of the container with dechlorinated water.
Start putting in the fish.It is best to use guppies, mollies, small goldfish, or create a mix.
