My boyfriends finger has healed up mostly, so he got some more rocks moved last night. Still arranging the rocks around though, and he said he wants to re-do the left side because we're running out of large rocks haha.
My pond plants should be here between today and Thursday, which ill be growing in a tub until the pond is ready.
I ordered a pond water testing kit, thinking "I can use this in my aquariums too!" But it doesn't even come with the nitrate test, it comes with phosphate. Grr.
Also, I noticed some mosquito larvae in the pond, the waterfall wasn't on for the first few days, so if those mosquito disk things don't work, guess ill have to drain and clean it once its done. Oh we'll, no big deal! And now I have some snacks for my bettas!
The new 1/5 hp pump came yesterday, so we put that in last night and there's such a difference in water movement now! It pumps twice as much as the old pump per hour, the old pond was half this size btw. I also ordered a pond aeration system, which will help oxygenating the water in any "dead" spots. Hope that gets here soon, it shipped on Monday.
