 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.

 ???I  did'nt  quite  get  this  last  sentence  though...
 
 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.

 "Trevor  -  The  one  stop  solution  for  all  Aquaria  needs  and  requirements"
 
 
 @Madan:  
 "Deeper  pond  -  no  green  water  in  the  tropics.  Minimum  depth  5  feet"

 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  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.
