very small pond
Hello. I have a 3ft dia plastic tube that is about ten feet long that I want to make a pond out of. I would bury it on end ( not sure of the depth yet, I was thinking 2-4 ft ) and make a ramp out of bricks on the inside so if an animal falls in, it will circle the pond until it reaches the stairs and can climb out. I want to leave the bottom open so water will seep out and not go 100% stagnant.
So I have a few questions.
What would be a good depth for it to always have water in it ?
What are some plants that would survive that small amount of water ?
Does anyone have pictures of something similar ?
Should it be placed in the sun ( not sure of location) or in the shade ( under 20ft tall pine trees )?
Would it be a good or bad thing to have it inside the a chicken pen ?
