Im currently setting up my first mini pond to house My leopard danio fry when they outgrow the tank their current tank. My goals are to run filtration solely off of solar power and to use the pond as a sort of low tech aquaponic system also to grow some peppers, herbs and veggies. To start i’ve sourced a 3/4 wine barrel. I believe it holds between 55-60 gallons Ive added a couple of old bookers bourbon boxes for planters also and have drilled holes in the bottom so that they drain back into the pond. I also added the pvc spigot set up at the back which will aid in water changes as well as draining in case the pond starts to overfill during heavy rain. The spigot should also allow me to use the pond water to easily water other nearby planters.
