I think it would be nice to have a pond for the duck.

Me too; I won't have to shower with a duck when I get back home once the semester is over if I put the pond in. :D

Every year, we have a problem with ducks using our pool as their personal pond. One of my idiot neighborsd wanted to shoot them! The pool belongs to our homeowners' association.

Oh, don't shoot the poor ducks! (Wait, doesn't the chlorine hurt them? *confused* )

Here, I looked up a few other Paludariums. I kinda like this one, going for a southeast Asian theme (note: grassy plants. I'd put more sand and less rocks, personally... and more water too, of course):


What do you think? Any other suggestions?

Apparently, the chlorine doesn't hurt them. The pic didn't show up.

Weird! O_o I mean, I've heard of geese using the occasional pool for migrating, but it never occurred to me about the chlorine until now.

Ah, nevermind the picture then. :P My point was more grass, more sandy stuff, less rocks.

Just go with what you like best. If you like more rocks, put in more rocks. If you like a lot of grass, put in more grass. I'm sure it will be very nice, whatever you decide to do.

I like the grassy plants. That one also seems to have some nice Java fern in there,which is always pretty. Another idea if you go with the southeast Asian theme is bamboo. A paludarium is actually a good situation where they could work nicely, as the could be planted in the water and grow out of it, and you can get bamboo in tons of different styles too, lot of people like to bend them around and shape them as they grow.
