How to build a Garden Pond to house Comets?
Hello, i have decided to build a garden pond in my back yard because my comets were getting too big for their tank, so I've already looked up some websites on the matter and i was just wondering aside from the construction, is there anything else i need to consider? What type of plants should i have? I might go away on holiday so will they be okay for a few weeks? Will they eat the plants? How often will I need to change or top up the water? Thanks in advance

As for building the pond itself, several companies sell manufactured plastic ponds. All you have to do for these is dig a hole and drop it in. From there you can pretty it up by dropping rocks or plants around it.

The home of a Comet goldfish should contain densely planted regions as well as big open areas where the Comet goldfish can swim around without being entangled in aquatic plants. In an outdoor pond, you must select aquatic plant species suitable for your particular part of the world and it is therefore difficult to provide any general recommendations.

    I would very seriously consider putting in a filtering system of some kind. You can incorporate this with a decorative waterfall and add the the ascetics of your pond. As a part of the filtering system if you have a water source available you can add an automatic filler. This works with a float like in a watering tank on a farm.

    I have 2. They are outside 12 months of the year, in NW Ohio, and I rarely feed them. They live off insects and some plant life. Go to the library and get some books.

    Plants are required, but filtration isn’t. Larger greenhouses and garden centers carry all kinds of plants for water gardens. Find one, and ask LOADS of questions.

    Personal advice: Only buy perennials. Annuals are pretty, but expensive and temporary
