  1. First, all your questions can be answered watching YouTube videos. Chlorine in tap water is a fish killer but most likely dissipates in your aljibe. I'm still careful though and use a water conditioner that eliminates it in seconds. This can be bought in pet shop. How much to use needs to be determined by how many gallons are added to the pond. Fill buckets and add a little to each bucket. That's what I do for my aquariums. 20210309_131334.thumb.jpg.617fcd7f3689b9da7ec2a875a7456c76.jpg

  2. This is my paradise. A large plant room upstairs with shelving units, water fountains and humidifier. A three shelf cart to fill with plants and wheel outside on the balcony where I can water freely. One third of living room downstairs is an atrium with another water fountain. Outside terrace is lined with plants. One corner of yard has orchids and more. I rent so gardening is all in pots. Even with the dogs and fish, I still have time for margaritas so please visit.

  3. An area in the back off the terrace is where I do a lot of repotting. Was always muddy. The rain splashed the mud on the terrace and required rinsing off everyday. The dogs and I tracked mud into the house. I hated it. I sprayed it with a strong weed killer, laid down the cloth, had 23 bags of river rock delivered and placed them one by one to fill the area. Problem solved.

  4. It's a power filter I saw on YouTube. Many new innovations to make it more user friendly. Not on Amazon. Good reviews. I'll have Alex Peterson bring it. Bought 5 beautiful little catfish. Found out they were Upside Down catfish and will grow to 4 inches or more. So bought a 40L tank and having a cabinet made for it. At least 350 lbs set up. Catfish need a long tank to be happy and not crowding each other.
