* The first thing needed when installing an outdoor pond is to choose an area that is of adequate size and environmentally sound for your pond. Remember, tropical freshwater fish have different needs so you need to make sure you choose an area that is the proper size for the species that will put fish in the pond. You also need to ensure that the environment in which to place the pond will support. If the species of tropical fish you select does as especially bright light, then put a pond in direct sunlight may not be the best idea.
* Then you want to design youÂ'll the pond to keep the right amount of water and provide for filtration and, if necessary, heating devices. You will need to ensure that wherever you decide to place the pond has access to electricity. This usually means that you may have to run the wiring to the pond and make sure it is rated for outdoor applications. If possible, you may want to place the pond on a separate circuit to isolate possible travel switch and overload.
* When building the pond will have to ensure that materials used are friendly to the fish that will have on the pond. Many ponds are constructed from plastics and other materials. Some of these materials may allow chemicals in water can be harmful to your tropical fish. Be sure to ask if you buy your fish and construction materials on the materials you are using a dial-especially. They should be able to steer you toward more material suitable for fish habitat.
Note that you will probably want something more than a hole in the ground. When designing your pond, be sure to include aquatic plants, rocks and other elements that turn the pond into a masterpiece of landscape. Small waterfalls can be pleasant looking and listening, but be sure that the fish you are thinking of putting in the pond can withstand the impact of falling water. Some fish prefer a quiet environment, without much disturbance in water.
