After scouring antique and junk stores we settled for this unique garden pond. We used a pump system purchased from a local garden center, filled it with water and a few dime store gold fish, and have enjoyed it for many years. The fish are shared with a local school, where they winter indoors and then return in the summer for an outdoor vacation.
