Presenting the Lotus Toughline Swift Preformed Pond, a compact preformed plastic pond with a capacity of 75 litres, making it ideal for use as a humble, natural sanctuary for small fish and aquatic plants.

At a length of 137cm and a depth of 38cm, this model is a great starter pond for novices who want to try their hand at pond keeping. It's also an ideal choice for people who have small gardens or limited outdoor space. What's more, thanks to its informal look and shape, it'll blend in harmoniously with any existing environment, creating a seamless transition between water and land.

Although strictly speaking it can be used to house small fish, due to its limited volume, we believe that this pond is best used to support wildlife and aquatic plants. By having running water in your garden, you'll attract local wildlife, such as frogs, toads, newts, dragonflies and more, who will visit your pond and in turn contribute towards creating a natural ecosystem in your garden.

The installation process is very quick and easy - simply dig a hole, drop the pond inside and then slowly backfill with soft sand or sifted soil as you gradually add water, making sure to check that the pond remains completely level at all times.

This model is moulded from high-density polyethylene which is UV resistant to ensure durability and longevity. For your peace of mind, it also comes with a 25-year manufacturer's guarantee.

The Swift model is the smallest in Lotus's 'Toughline' collection of preformed ponds, which also includes the Wren, Partridge, Jay, Woodpecker, Dove & Kestrel.

How many 5in goldfish could I keep in the Lotus Preformed Pond?

We Replied:

Dear Fred Thank you for your question. It depends on filtration. If you have a large flow and large filter then the answer is plenty but, if it's just a regular filter and flow, we'd say a maximum of five. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy Hobson

Christopher Wilson Asked:

Could I use this pond as a freestanding holding tank while I build a new pond. There will be about 12 fish ranging from 15mm to 50mm?

We Replied:

Dear Christopher Thank you for your question. Unfortunately this tank is not suitable for above ground installation as the sides are not strong enough. We would advise a Laguna Holding Tank as an alternative. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy Hobson
