A Simple Goldfish Pond!
Build your own Goldfish Pond the quick and easy way!
It's that time of year when you might be thinking of giving your goldfish an outside summer home. Here's what worked great for me when I decided to build a Goldfish Pond and I didn't have to dig up my yard or spend a lot of money. I would like to share this idea with you.
Order a 300 gallon Rubbermaid livestock trough from Tractor Supply or any Livestock and Farm Supply.Then add our Pond
If you can't find a Rubbermaid Dealer near you, phone 1-800-362-1000.
The size of the 300 gallon trough
is 25 inches high x 63 inches long and 69 inches wide.
At one time I had ten Goldfish Ponds set up
just like this and I couldn't believe the health, color and growth of my goldfish.
Treat your new 300 gallon Goldfish Pond just like you would your aquarium, with these additions. Place a two foot by four foot piece of insulation board on top of your goldfish pond to give your goldfish shade from the sun. Add our Goldfish Pond Filter with the water fountain in the middle of the goldfish pond and set it and the pump on two cement blocks (not stacked, side by side) to keep it off the bottom of the pond. Note: Set the cement blocks with the holes of the blocks open so the goldfish can swim through them.
Now here's the best part!
What I like best about our Goldfish Pond Filter Kit
is, it is very easy to maintain, does a great job of filtering and adds a water fountain to keep the pond water well oxygenated, (you do not need an air pump)
plus, it comes with a perfect size pump. All you have to do is plug it in, it's that easy!

I think once you set up your Goldfish Pond and see how well your goldfish thrive, you'll set one up every summer. I know your goldfish will love their summer home, dining on natutal algae and bugs. Plus, you'll really enjoy the sound of the water fountian, it's very relaxing!
Some Goldfish Ponds might need a wire top to protect your fish from raccoons or other predators.
