The tryptic, just above, shows a dark brown wooden barrel by my front door. The wooden barrel is cut in half, has a black plastic liner, and is filled with water. A beautiful Red & White Pond Comet lives in this barrel by my front door. In front of the barrel is a beige ceramic plant holder that has the shape of a carp.

The pictures below show the inside of the barrel with the beautiful Red & White Pond Comet that lives in my small pond. Click here for more information about Pond Comets.
 
You can also see the blue gravel on the bottom of the barrel. This layer of gravel is about 1/4" thick and greatly increases the surface area for the beneficial natural biological processes that improve the quality of the water.
 
You can see the water in my pond is crystal clear, but I didn't have to do anything special before I took this picture. Click here for more information about gravel for ponds.

Here is an email that Lecorps wrote to us after reading this page about the pond shown above.
 
"I just love your feng shui design. Is it possible to send me the design plan for your wooden barrel with the fish i.e. size and how you keep it so clean? ..."

Reply. Hello Lecorps, thank you for your email.
 
I bought the barrel, which was already cut in half, at Home Depot. The barrel measures approximately 26" in diameter across the top and stands 18" high. I also bought the matching black plastic liner at Home Depot at the same time, and I made sure the liner fit the barrel. These barrels and liners are not available all year at Home Depot, but I see them for sale every spring.

 
I picked a place for my pond, near my front door, under the eave of my house on the northwest side of my house, where the pond wouldn't get too much direct sunlight that would cause lots of green algae to grow.
 
I put the black plastic liner inside the barrel and filled it with tap water from the faucet, then I added a thin layer of aquarium gravel about 1/4" thick in the bottom of the pond. I bought some gravel that was labeled for use in aquariums. Click here for more information about gravel for ponds.
 
Actually, I bought three colors of gravel: white, dark blue, and light blue. I like this mixture. I didn't use all the gravel in all three bags. I used less than one full bag. If you prefer one color of gravel, just get one bag of that color.
 
It's important to have some gravel in the bottom of a plastic pond, but the layer of gravel should not be more than 1/4" thick, or the gravel will get dirty and cause problems. Click here for more about gravel.

I added some water conditioner to the water, stirred the water, and let the pond sit for a week before I added an fish. Click here for more information about Water Conditioner.
 
After waiting a week I added one Comet Goldfish. This fish was just a nice common Comet Goldfish. I had planned to replace it with a Fancy Goldfish like a Red Cap Oranda or a Fancy Fantail. Click here for more information about Fancy Goldfish.
 
But the Comet Goldfish turned out to have a wonderful personality and grew to become a very beautiful fish, as you can see in the above pictures. I was very lucky to take another wonderful picture of this fish. Click here to see that picture.
 
Twice each week I remove 20% of the water and replace it with tap water from the faucet. I measured my water is 13" deep. The sides of my barrel are almost vertical, so 20% of the water is about 20% of the depth, and 20% of 13" is 0.20 x 13" = 2.6" or about 2.5".
 
Twice a week I use my gravel washer to clean my gravel while removing 2.5" of water. Click here for more information about gravel washers.
 
Then I replace the water with tap water from the faucet. Cleaning my gravel takes about 5 or 10 minutes and keeps the water fresh and clear. Click here to see my eight year old nephew, Nicholas, helping me clean the gravel and change some water.
 
I put the water from my pond on plants in my garden, and this water is even better than water straight from the faucet, because water that has been in my pond contains some dissolved fish waste, which is a plant nutrient.
 
I feed my fish floating goldfish food plus a few freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. Click here to read more about feeding fish. I also keep a few Live Black Worms and feed my Goldfish two or three of the live worms three times a week. Click here for more about Live Black Worms.
 
Once I saw a small pale-green flying insect land on the water's surface in my pond, and my Goldfish immediately ate that insect. This diet of TetraFin, Freeze Dried Blood Worms, a few Black Worms, and an occasional insect seems to be very good for this fish.
 
One problem I should mention that I had with this pond. The water got cloudy about a week after I started feeding the fish. I realized this was because the gravel was new and not cultured gravel, so I got a handful of gravel from an established aquarium with healthy fish and sprinkled that gravel on top of the gravel in my pond. Click here to read more about cultured gravel.
 
About 36 hours later the water in the pond had completely cleared and has remained crystal clear. Click here to read more about Cloudy Water.

I've enjoyed this barrel and the Goldfish very much. There is always something new happening that's interesting to watch. By that I mean the fish does something different and unexpected. My neighbors enjoy my little pond. They stop by to see it and talk about it, and children seem to enjoy it most of all. I feel very fortunate to have this pond by my front door.
