Also asked, can fish survive in a pond without a filter?
It is possible, but a fish pond needs oxygen for the fish to survive. As oxygen levels are so vital to the wellbeing of your fish, a bubble stone or waterfall will also help to bring oxygen to your pond. It is possible to keep a fish pond without a filter, with regular doses of Aquaplancton.
Also, does a fish pond need a filter? No. If you are intending not to have any fish, or you're creating a wildlife pond with high plant stocks and just a few fish you may choose not to have a filter, and try to create a natural balance instead. You will need plenty of plants, probably covering two thirds of the pond area.
