Today it's becoming more and more common to have ornamental ponds in houses and/or
in gardens. The combination of the unique natural beauty, the colors and the sounds
given by these ponds makes a pearl of nature out of every garden. Following the
technological development, to which we've witnessed in the last 20 years, the opportunity
to create ornamental ponds has become more available and convenient than ever.
There are three types of ornamental ponds:
- Ornamental fish ponds – focusing on the ornamental fish and the pleasure in watching
and feeding them.
- Highlighting elements in ornamental ponds – clear water, ornamental fish and vegetation
located in the living room/balcony/roof while emphasizing the home structure and
- Water plants for ornamental ponds – focusing on varied water plants.
Proper planning of ornamental ponds will lead to saving of resources and time down
the road. When planning, one must consider a wide range of factors and give them
the judgment prior to beginning construction. Focusing on every detail would create
an ornamental pond that looks perfect all year round.

In The Pond
All living creatures in the aquarium and the pond have an effect on the
chemical cleanliness of the water. The more polluting factors we will have, the
more we would like to have an efficient biological system which will be able to
cleanse the water from pollution.
Ornamental Fish Acclimatization
When we would like to add new ornamental fish to the pond or aquarium,
the acclimatization will be preformed gradually in order to prevent any harm being
done to the new fish. The key here is not to make any drastic changes. All ornamental
fish can adjust to the environment in which they will live in. However, an extreme
change in a short timeframe, might harm the fish, and even cause death.
The Garra rufa is a particular sort of fish that lives in rivers. It
has a special ability of clinging to rocks and cleaning them out by sucking down
