My beds don't require weekly maintenance and get watered when necessary and
this is all very much on the surface.  Maybe I'm just a neglectful gardener.
I guess I'm more concerned with the mechanics involved - pumps and filters
and whatnot. Then concern over oxygenation, algae, dead fish/surplus
fish/cats getting the fish, etc.  I wouldn't want anything that makes noise
either, which makes me think it could become stagnant..I think ponds are
wonderful - in someone else's yard.
