My husband built this pond so our 3 boys could have a 'window' into the lives of our was his passion project because a few pond/landscape people told him it couldn't be done.Afterwards they came over to take pics and marvel at his achievement.Sadly we lost him in a diving accident three years ago but we feel close to him whenever we sit by the pond.And our sons feel connected to him when they take care of it and its inhabitants

Aniagreen73 what a beautiful job your husband did, I hope it brings you some peace. He was very creative and clever. I love the rays, I had a similar one made of glass but unfortunately the cat knocked it off the furniture shelf it was on
