    Miniature pond ( ideas wanted)

    Having a very large custom enclosure made by AP. Im sick of large horse water bowls and totes. Using concrete to mold a pond would be too heavy to remove & clean...looking for ideas. Anyone know about injection molding or making a plastic pond? Looking for aprox 3 x 3.

    It would be easy enough to make a faade out of foam, painted up to look natural, for around/under the edges of the tub.

    You could use a cement mixing tub and make a facade around it like bcr suggested. Maybe even outfit it with a drainage valve that gets routed out of the enclosure to make emptying and cleaning the tub easier when needed

    Instead of worrying about the looks I think Id design some kind of frame so it didnt get flipped over... that would be easy to do just like the totes. Idk why I never thought of these, Ive bought them several times hahahaha.
