A pump is a very important part of an aquarium. Water needs to circulate inside the tank for oxygenation and filtration- two processes that keep your tank healthy and clean for your fish and plants - and the only way to do that in an automated manner is by using a pump.
The same principle applies to an outdoor pond. Yes, even an outdoor pond in your garden needs a pump to keep it a suitable living environment for your fish and plants
. Ponds are usually bigger than aquariums and in a more exposed to the elements, so the pump your pond needs has to be specifically designed for pond use.
