  2. I didn’t know you were a horse girl! Me too! And I love muck buckets. Good for water, hay and just… anything! Now I know they could be good for a pond haha.

  3. U r my hero lmfao…i just started….but I got ONE pond & 4 pearl goldfish & then a chic coop with 3 baby chichs/hens….& 3 kitties & 3 kiddies & one hubby. Babe….i am hustling trying to sell plants that I raise or resell. I have all kinds of garden stuff too…..the thing is…. I gotta get my store up…i gotta actually Market & Sell lolol. I am so an outdoors kinda gal. Just found ur channel. I got the 40 gallon tractor supply oval stock tank….i paid 39.99$ too…i live this Bitch. I been searching for what of my plants to put n…around…etc. but my plants All love th e humidity & I use solar that I rewired to run 2 water pumps…& then one air stone bar…plus an extra sub for fan or another pump…extra filter etc. I am so glad i found u 👍

  4. Hey Rachel! Thanks for all the videos! Very informative. I'm afraid that in my rush to git 'er done, I may have set myself up for disaster. So my husband bought me a pot for our anniversary and instead of putting a plant in it I lined it and turned it into a balcony tub. Just a basic setup with a circulating pump. It's 19"W x 13"H interior dimensions. Yesterday I put a dwarf hardy water lily and some horsetail rush in it. Today I checked the temp and the water is 95.4 degrees. 😦 I should probably add that the it's a second floor balcony, East facing, and gets full shade starting at 1:00 afternoon. I'm concerned that the water lily is getting too hot. Should I be worried? Is there anything I can do?

  5. I'm so happy I found you! I have 0 knowledge on how to make a little patio pond and you explain in such an ease for me to understand everything! I can't wait to jump in to your other videos <3 much love from Mexico.

  6. Can you do a video on common pond issues and ways to solve them? I currently have green water and I know thats an algea issue, but it would be cool to have a video on what to watch out for and how to deal with it when it pops up!

  7. I actually picked up a free 40g Tuff Stuff tub from a neighbor and I've used it for 5+ years now as a goldfish pond with great results and very little maintenance. My next endeavor will be the 110g tub from Tuff Stuff. I'm appreciating your videos!

  8. What would you recommend for starting up lilies? I'm trying to get something where I can grow a bunch of water lily sprouts in 1/2 gal containers in a small space (patio) for selling them later (i.e., won't grow them to full size).

  9. I'll still use my 450gal kiddy pool this year, can't wait… hey Rachel can I grow out kubotai rasbora, and rocket killies in a 24° C water temp?

  10. I just got a round tub for 200 rupees which is 3 dollars here in India. It doesn't matter summer or not here but i got idea from you for my ever breeding celestial pearl danios. Will be planting few plants and put the babies there. Total expenses 3 dollars. Hah

  11. I've been using that 40 gallon tub from tractor supply for about 3 yrs now. It's starting to show some cracking on the top edge but still structural sound. And mine stay outside yr round

  12. Hey Rachel, are you intending to start an outdoor pond? It would be interesting to watch you set one up from start to finish with your choice of livestock:)

  13. We have a defunct jacuzzi outside I would like to convert to a pond for plants and goldfish as inexpensively as possible do you have any tips for getting started? I'm new to your channel but enjoying your helpful content very much!

  14. I have a tub planned for my covered patio..but to be honest I put it on hold ..because of wetland birds mostly..once its screened in I should be OK for year round..

  15. Hi Rachel; I have 2 Tuff Stuff tubs and both are excellent. I have the 110 gal one that collects Rain water that I use for my water changes. It is out all year long. In 2017 2018 winter I did not drain it (All fish were brought in) and it froze solid. So solid that the edges were lifted off the ground. It survived without any damage – it really is tough. Last season I drained it for the winter. Last season, I added the 40 gal Tuff Stuff tub to the line up. I plumbed the 40 gal Tuff Stuff tub to the 110 drain so both are filled with Rain water. Last fall, I brought the 40 gal into the garage for my Goldfish and it worked great. The smaller size works out great because it is easy to transport and fill with good surface area, as you said. I would recommend Tuff Stuff tubs. I also used the Whiskey barrel last year with good success so I purchased another one this year to add to the fun. Thanks for the video and this will be a series I will be looking forward to as I am excited for the season to start. Thanks!

  16. This is going to be an awesome series. I am very interested in doing this for white clouds, guppies, and shrimp too. And the plants as well.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  17. Thought I would mention this as another option for people to think about for summer tubbing/sump. I use an old fridge/freezer combo layed on its back (atop besser/concrete blocks to keep it off the ground and lessen opportunity for rust) with doors removed as a sump for my discus. I just removed all the inards – the shelving and brackets etc and then put a $30 pond liner in it. It sits under my carport with the plumbing going out my bedroom window. Half is used for mechanical/biological and the other half is all potted plants – amazon swords, elodea, val and ludwigia. It gets plenty of light due to the carport roof being transluscent. It takes a bit of work to prepare the fridge, and I would not use without a liner (chemical residues etc). Bonus feature is they are insulated and can hold a large water volume – mine holds 160 gallons.

  18. Great advice. I love your enthusiasm for Fish etc. We were lucky some time ago there was a Local Government Hard Rubbish Collection for our Neigbourhood which allows for Residents to throw out all thier Non-Recyclable goods. We found a home that had thrown out a Variety of Pots but 1 huge Rubber/Plastic Lotus Pond. Its now set up in a very shelered area of our garden with Solar Airation wth pond plants & livebearing fishes we rescued from our Local Aqurium store that was selling them off cheaply as feeders lol. They now wnjoying thier 2nd chance to life in the Pond environment. Cheers from Melbourne, Australia.
