 I  was  thinking  of  getting  a  cemented  rectangular  sink  for  use  as  pond,  I  have  also  seen  people  using  a  custom  made  terracotta  tank.  Please  advice.

 Here  comes  the  pond  maniac...
 
 Madan  san...  couple  of  other  things  I  missed  out  to  mention  in  my  earlier  mail  as  pointed  out  by  you.
 
 1.  Size.  I  am  looking  for  around  6  feet  length/diameter  one.
 2.  Should  I  go  for  a  substrate  or  not.
 3.  Should  I  go  for  water/terrarium  plants  or  not.
 4.  Maintenance:  Here  comes  the  big  back  burner,  I  am  the  only  coolie  at  hoime  who  can  take  all  the  loads....so  please  suggest  practical  and  feasible  one.
 5.  Pond  suitable  Fish  that  are  adorable  from  top  viewing.
 6.  I  have  a  shaded  terrace  with  partial  sunlight,  can  I  place  the  pond  directly  on  the  terrace,  any  precautions  to  be  taken  here.
 7.  Other  option  is  to  place  the  pond  in  the  open  garden  area,  where  it  is  exposed  to  the  elements.
 8.  We  have  cats  that  frequent  the  garden,  crows  have  made  the  big  raintree  in  front  of  our  house  as  their  nest,  that  come  and  explore  for  worms  and  pests  in  the  garden.
 9.  Anything  important  I  missed  here  please...
 
 thanks  again...

 2.  On  terrace  yes,  Garden  -  Pots
 3.  yes  around  the  pond
 4.  Install  a  pump,  water  the  garden  from  the  pond  and  replenish  the  pond.  On  terrace  by  Gravity.
 6.  If  cement  pond,  build  one  on  the  terrace.  Terracotta  etc.,  check  the  slope  of  the  terrace.
 Garden,  look  for  Fiber  glass  containers  that  can  be  partially  buried  in  the  garden,  
 Pond  liner-  Contact  Rufus/Niranjan.
 
 All  others  complete  a  pond  in  the  garden.
 
 EDIT:
 Garden  Pond  -  Go  for  depth,  5  feet  if  you  don't  want  Green  water,  in  Tropics  this  is  the  minimum  you  need  to  avoid  green  water.  1/3  shade  throughout  the  day  is  a  must,  locate  pond  accordingly.

 Thanks  for  that  informative  and  practical  tips.  
 
 What's  your  take  on  the  cats,  crows!  do  they  bother  the  pond  inhabitants  like  fish,  plants  etc.  or  did  you  already  hint  me  on  this  by  suggesting  deeper  pond  or  something?
 
 and  whats  your  choice  of  fish  for  pond?

 All  the  other  points  cats,  crows,  rats,  snakes  complete  a  pond.
 Fish  -  what  you  like.  Japanese  Koi  ?  Or  go  abhis  way  and  breed  P  denisonii.
 Deeper  pond  -  no  green  water  in  the  tropics.  Minimum  depth  5  feet.

 What  more  can  I  say  to  this....
 "Trevor  -  The  one  stop  solution  for  all  Aquaria  needs  and  requirements"
 
 
 @Madan:  
 "Deeper  pond  -  no  green  water  in  the  tropics.  Minimum  depth  5  feet"
 
 Agree  with  your  11th  commandment  on  stone..:-)

 This  is  a  fun  way  to  decorate  the  shore  of  a  small  natural  pond.  This  old  boat  is  re  purposed  as  a  planter.  A  fun  way  to  add  some  character  to  the  pond.  Also  installing  a  <a>small  outdoor  pond  fountain  kit</a>  helps  aerate  and  also  makes  it  extra  pretty!

 This  is  a  fun  way  to  decorate  the  shore  of  a  small  natural  pond.  This  old  boat  is  re  purposed  as  a  planter.  A  fun  way  to  add  some  character  to  the  pond.  Also  installing  a  small  outdoor  pond  fountain  kit  helps  aerate  and  also  makes  it  extra  pretty,  without  spending  much  money!!small  outdoor  pond  fountain  kit

 This  pond  owner  took  a  small  boat  and  repurposed  it  as  an  ornamental  decoration  and  planter  for  his  outdoor  pond  area.   There  are  so  many  things  you  can  use  to  repurpose.  Using  anything  that  is  ornamental  and  will  hold  water.  All  you  need  is  a  pump  to  circulate  the  water.

 Two  ways  to  anchor  your  floating  Fountain
 
 The  small  floating  pond  fountain  can  be  anchored  to  the  bottom  of  the  pond  or  tied  off  to  the  shore  if  your  pond  is  smaller  in  size.  To  anchor  you  will  need  heavy  duty  nylon  rope,  1/8”  –  1/4”  thick.  To  anchor  to  the  bottom  of  the  pond,  tie  the  ropes  to  cement  blocks  and  drop  blocks  in  opposite  directions  of  each  other.  Tie  other  end  of  ropes  to  the  float  or  the  handle  of  the  pump.  This  method  will  require  entering  the  pond  with  a  boat  or  canoe.  If  using  the  shoreline  method,  tie  the  ropes  to  the  float  and  tie  off  one  rope  to  one  side  of  the  shore  and  the  other  to  the  other  side.  Heavy  duty  mobile  home  anchors  or  dog  tie  stakes  work  well  for  this.  Put  fountain  in  water,  be  very  careful  not  to  get  mud  into  the  pump.  The  other  rope  can  now  be  walked  over  to  the  other  side  of  the  pond  and  connected  to  the  stake.  This  method  works  well  in  smaller  ponds  and  you  can  make  a  pulley  system.  Your  fountain  may  look  different  than  the  illustration  but  the  anchoring  set-up  is  still  the  same  method.Small  floating  pond  fountain

 Your  backyard  pond  area  should  reflect  your  lifestyle.  It’s  not  just  some  place  to  store  the  outdoor  equipment  and  bicycles.  It  is  a  place  to  go  to  relax  with  the  family  and  friends  and  enjoy.  Choose  simple  backyard  projects  that  will  change  your  outdoor  space  and  pond  area  into  your  family’s  fun  hangout  spot.  Fresh  cut  grass,  colorful  flowers  or  other  plants,  rocks  and  decorative  outdoor  items  are  great  way  to  increase  your  outdoor  environment.  For  home  owners  that  have  ponds  on  their  property,  should  maybe  consider  a  pond  fountain  for  a  small  pond.  Not  only  will  it  beautify  the  area  but  increase  the  value  of  your  property.  Add  natural  decorative  accents.  Using  natural  materials  to  add  to  your  space.   Swings  made  of  wood  and  flat  stone  pathways  can  set  a  whimsical  mood  for  the  rest  of  your  design  ideas.  Opt  for  pest  and  rot  resistant  wood  for  easy  maintenance.
 Add  bird  friendly  decorations.  Birds  are  a  great  way  to  add  nature  in  your  space  so  add  bird  feeders  and  bird  baths.pond  fountain  for  a  small  pond
