    Oh yes jpappy, all the pics were there at the beginning and they disappeared...weird! Maybe the Ghost of Tanganyika, again?

    Fish will be added when the water warms up to 72 degrees right now its 65 I need a week in the 80's for this to happen but here soon, it takes a month for the Hyacinth to multiply as well..

    The DIY filter is the black rubber maid box, inside is a layer of ceramic noodles UGF plate than a large amount of lava rock.

    Yeah, I'd like to see the specs, or more direct pictures (or both) of how that filter is set up. Where's the pump, and where's the water-out-of-the-pond hose? How often do you top it off for evaporation?

    Sorry i didn't photograph the filter but the specs are that i had a used 38gal rubber maid container lying in the garage i drilled a hole bottom left corner inserted a tube from a old vacuum cleaner silicone it in place, then i drilled a hole in the lid and attached a PVC pipe threw the top part and on the inside i placed an elbow PVC to hold it in place, then i attached the hose with a clamp to the end of PVC pipe to the lid. The hose runs from the lid to the pump which is located on the floor of the pond just below the DIY filter. The plants near the filter is hiding the hose and i have the cord tucked away as well. I painted the box black to blend in originally it was blue..

    The pump i am using is an submersible type pond pump couldn't tell you what it is it was given to me by a friend but it is a higher end pump with a high volume of GPH..

    As for evaporation usually in the summer months it usually depends on rainfall last year it rained quite a bit so i didn't need to top off any but if we have a dry season usually topped off at about a drop of two inches..

    If you look at the second photo above where the black rubber maid filter is you can see the hose running out of the pond and goes up to the lid..
