Just a little pond I built.

Looks pretty nice. What are you using for a pump and filtration to keep the water moving? Are your plants sitting in pots or rooted directly into some rocks or other substrate? Any fish?

It’s all natural so the plants act as their own eco system and the few fish living in it feed off the algae. and most of the plants are just potted as it was a scrappy project.

Honestly I would be concerned about not having some kind of pump to move the water around. The plants will certainly provide natural filtration, but if the water isn't moving you run the risk of it becoming a stagnant mosquito-breeding pool. Also if the surface of the water is moving it will add oxygen to the water, so both your fish and plants will be healthier. Just something to consider.

It can't be natural without water flow, even natural wetlands and lakes have a small amount of flow. Edit, your pond will be much healthier, especially your fish

We filled it with water added the plants and left it to do its own thing, maybe natural isn’t the correct word but it’s not got any sort of tech.

Is that an immersed Lily? I’m not sure what that plant is, it looks cool. It looks like a lily with rigid stems coming out of the water. Do you know what it is? Where’d you get it?

That looks to be a lotus.
