You can view a tiny video for the pond here:
And of course the attached images, let me know what do you think of this project?

The guppies pond is an idea that I had for months and I finally constructed it, the guppies in the pond are assorted fancy guppies and they seem very happy with their new home, I am also expecting new fries soon in this new guppies habitat, the pond itself can be used for a wide range of fish and not only guppies

I am using several terrestrial plants that can have their roots directly in the water, while using several water plants as well but I believe most of the nitrate will be consumed by the terrestrial plants, in general it is healthy to use many plants in your pond or aquarium which works as a natural filter to reduce or even completely get rid of nitrate and any harmful chemicals which are used by the plants as natural fertilizers

On the top I have suspended a plastic mesh into the plastic walls of this huge plant pot and then on top of the mesh I added the terrestrial plants (Spider plant, Syngonium plant and Lucky bamboo) and added the rocks, there is a water pump as well suspended just below the rocks to bring water up in a waterfall effect but it doesn't appear in the photos
It worth mentioning that these 3 terrestrial plants can live directly in water (not all terrestrial plants can do this) and of course they feed on the fish waste and other nutrients in the water, actually the Syngonium plant is creating more and more leaves every day and the Lucky Bamboo is doing great, but the Spider plant still didn't create new leaves
