I went to the LFS yesterday and my family fell in love with a creepy looking goldfish. And I got to thinking.... We have this old rickety table sitting in our screened in patio that we want to get rid of anyways.... What if we get a POND out in the patio room?

Then I found this company that makes a 60g wall pond that fits the area EXACTLY. Pond Kit Sizes and Prices - You can buy your pond kit here.

So does this pond look safe? Could we get a few goldfish in a 60g pond? It might never happen but it can't hurt to come up with a plan

If we do get this pond, I want to get it soon. There's a sale going on with free shipping and reduced prices, so the entire wall pond kit would only be $595 dollars.

What kind of goldfish is it? Fancy goldfish would work, but commons, comets, and other long bodied goldfish wouldn’t.

You could have 4-5 with good filtration.

I might do less than that because the dimensions of the pond look weird. I'm doubting if it's actually 60 gallons.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. I haven't even told my family yet

What about a stock tank? Those are kinda cheap.

Or if you have a large backyard, you can dig a pond and buy some pond liner.

Digging a pond is out of the question. A stock pond is cheaper, but I have a better chance of convincing them if the pond looks nice.
