I think the fish are so beautiful; they can get quite large and live for a long time.
No, it is sunk into the ground. They have had it 2 years now. The liner is skyblue which is why it reminds me of a swimming pool, and they have it decorated goofy, IMO. Plastic giant frogs and all sorts of kitch, just not my style.
The fish are beautiful, and they treat them like they are they are their babies! The winter was harsh, even with a heater some fish were lost, very sad.
They have a small pond at their other house,(same state, WI) I stayed there for a while, and you really do get to know the fish. We lost a few there too from the bad winter and I cried my eyes out!
ETA My favorite, I nicknamed him "turd" because though a stunning gold/brown, he just looked dull brown in the water ( smaller pond, black liner) We lost him over the winter.
