    Hinits:

    1. Meter (flow meter) the water when filling your new pond, it is rarely the size you thought it would be.
    2.  

    3. Great investment: Buy a salt meter, Salt can be one of your most economical ways of treating fish. It is very difficult to guess how much salt you have added and how much was lost during the last few water changes (salt doesn’t evaporate). You can usually get one for about $60.
