MattyIce Posted August 25, 2020 Share Posted August 25, 2020 (edited) Turned my Grandparents neglected unused 4 foot deep 16 X 32 pool into a no filtration pond earlier this year. I have several planted tanks that lead to the need for a tank for trimmings, and then a second tank for trimmings, and then a third tank for trimmings, and then i just started dumping extra trimmings into an outdoor 100 gallon rubbermaid mini pond which was already full of water Hyacynth and other plants. I cleaned out the pool and filled it with about 6 inches of well water, transfered about 25 water hyacynths, about a pound of duck weed, a good amount of guppy grass, and lots of other random clippings. It has been about 2 months now and it hasn't completely failed so I'm making a photo journal about it. Unfortunately these are the oldest photos I have, they are from about a month after I first cleaned the pool, late July/Early August: These are from about a week and a half ago, thanks to rain the pool is about 1.5 feet full and my Dwarf Aquarium lily is blooming: Trying to do a Time Lapse of the flower opening: And here are some pictures from Today, 2 of my water hyacinth have bloomed: Edited August 25, 2020 by MattyIce 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
