    the lake is 2 1/2 inches deep and i made it out of one of those
    plastic tubs and i mounted it with wood screws and liquid nails on all for sides and the screws are 3 inches apart the whole thing is around 24 inches long and 24 inches wide before landscaping and the return line for the pump is 1/4 inch fish hose from the pet store about 1.00 in price the pump is a 10 gal fish pump and for my dran plug i used a top of a plastic pop bottle and a water shut off valve the river is made of plasic laid in then plaster over it then a water proff paint to finsh it off then i went out side and found small rocks anh hot glued them in and used flat base paint to do the bed in a muddy green color ..
