 Beta  Wrote:
 
                                                 
Quote:                
My  setup  has  2  Tiger  Shovelnose  catfishes,  4  Quetzal,  2  Red  Devils,  6  Oscars,  1  Jaguar  cichlid,  2  Indian  Knife  Fishes,  3  Sailfin  Plecos.                

 
 Beta  could  you  please  tell  me  the  size  of  the  pond  and  are  these  fish  leaving  peacefully  have  you  used  any  target  fish????  
 Can  I  go  for  an  external  filteration  system  like  attaching  a  small  tank  along  the  pond????  Can  I  use  a  pump  to  do  the  filteration.
 
 What  about  heating  system?  Guys  temperature  drops  rapidly  in  winter  hear  in  bangalore.
 
 I  am  thinking  of  doing  a  partition  in  middle  so  that  different  species  could  be  put.  I  would  also  like  to  have  a  small  hospital  tank  attached  so  that  it  would  be  helpful  in  the  future.
 Is  this  posible  to  construct?  Any  idea  guys?

 The  fish  which  I  would  like  to  have  in  the  pond  is  a  shoal  of  RBs  in  a  partition,  a  pair  of  Gaints  and  Oscars  in  another,  1  Devil,  1  Jag,  1  Texas  and  a  pair  of  Quetzels  in  another.
 A  Hospital  tank  and  a  filteration  chamber  attached  to  all  the  four  partitions.

 This  is  the  pecking  order  in  my  tank:
 Red  Devil-->Shovelnose-->Oscar-->Quetzal-->Jaguar
 
 Both  the  Shovelnoses  are  more  than  2  feet  in  length  and  have  a  gobbled  up  quite  a  few  of  the  inhabitants  including  oscars.  Not  much  peace  in  the  tank  as  the  Red  Devils  are  breeding  now.

 Shovel  nose  (Pseudoplatystoma  fasciatum)  also  known  as  emperor  catfish  is  a  huge  carnivorous  catfish.    Its  not  very  rare.    You  get  it  on  demand  in  Salem.

 Very Happy  Hi  vijay!
             going  by  dimensions  you  mention,your  pond  will  hold  about  2200  gallons(x4.5=10,000  ltrs).So  whatever  filtration  you  do,it  at  best  ,will  be  purely  mechanical  filtration.For  good  quality  water,  daily  water  changes  are  the  only  hope.(unless  you  plan  to  buy  a  filter/powerhead  that  can  turn  the  water  atleast  twice...20,000  ltrs  per  hour??!!)
         Plants  do  a  great  job,but  dont  even  think  of  any  kind  of  submerged  plants....floating  plants  will  do  great.The  odd  lotus  in  a  pot  may  be  ok....
         Tanks  built  in  to  the  ground  tend  to  collect  lots  of  mud  and  debri  too...better  go  in  for  above  ground  tank...you  may  wish  to  use  syphon  to  empty  the  tank,or  have  the  mason  fit  a  tap  at  the  base.
           For  such  a  large  body  of  water,cooling  down  wont  be  very  fast...so  dont  worry  about  winters.
           Yes  you  can  make  partitions,but  wont  that  spoil  the  beauty  of  it  all?  Smile  have  great  fun  with  this  pond!all  the  best!

 Hello  !  it  is  an  awesome  idea..  but  before  you  start  digging  up/building  stuff...  i  think  you  should  consider  options..  for  example  search  for  intex  inflatable  pools  on  google..  and  you  may  find  huge  inflatable  pools  which  you  can  use  as  a  pond  !  also,  you  may  consider  building  something  like  a  little  neat  swimming  pool  so  you  can  use  the  typical  pool  equipment/filters  or  lights  or  some  pool-combo  if  some  company  offers  in  india..  wish  you  all  the  best  with  your  project..  enjoyy
