Donna, our pond takes more time than that.  I chk it daily for drifting matl, 
fert the plants, my husband cleans the filter about monthly, chk for water 
level particularly after a big rain, feed the fish and I'm not sure what my 
added stream will require.  If it is to much it will become a dry stream bed 
however we have invested in the extra but nec equipment.  We drain the pond in the 
fall so we have plants & fish to place each spring as well preparing for 
winter.  The place i get the fish takes them in the fall and does give a sm 
discount on the new fish in the spring.   Be cause our pond meets the city depth rqmt 
so as to avoid a rqd fence, there is always that concern that someone might 
wonder into the garden.
