Pond update....stage 3

Hi, now that the pond was ready for filling, all i needed was some rain to fill my tank....and rain it did. The tank was full in no time and overflowing, on with the raincoat, and released the tank water into the pond. In a few short hours it was full...and the tank still filling...had a bucket load of rain that day. Once the weather cleared it was time to secure the liner edge with rocks and also make some minor adjustments to the ground work and waterfall. When setting up the falls, i didnt want a roaring when i set up the header pond, some of the water would return to the pond behind the rocks and the rest would run a pleasant trickle over the fall rocks. This worked out very well. A few plants were added (more to come) and quartz stone added as a border and also to secure and hide any gaps.The electrical side of things was now completed and the pump and bio filter were doing their job,some lights were also added beneath the walkover.
