  • Anyone else cranking up for pond season?

    Several of my hardy plants are starting to grow now.
    I have 2 in ground ponds ( 1000 gallons, 2500 gallons), 2x 1000 gallon cattle waterng troughs, and about another 2-3 thousand gallons in smaller cattle troughs and kiddy pools.
    I keep some with hardy fish, but others are used later in the year to breed/grow out fish.

    I will get some pics up soon!

      I threw some food in the pond yesterday and saw a couple fish picking at it. I was surprised to see that most of my shubunkin fry survived the winter!

          A pond is something I have only dreamed about. But one day.....

          Would love to see pictures of your setup.

              Want to see pictures of everybody's ponds. With all the water in our backyard, I have been told that an outdoor pond is out of the question . I told him it would be great for drainage but he's having none of it. We shall see .

                I have a 300g in ground and my goldies woke up a month or so ago, my lillies are sending up pads but haven't broken the surface yet. Everyone is eating and I think I am going to put some WCMM in there this spring and see how they do. I am interested to see if they can live out the winter in it especially.

                  Wish I could be this year but hopefully in another year or two I will have a nice setup happening.

                    I would word it as at least it's not another tank in the house and just think how it will benefit the local wild life and how relaxing it will be to sit out and watch the fish and everyone else it will attract

                        How about saying that you are digging a veggie patch but "accidentally" go too deep and as you have already started you may as well keep going for a pond

                            Lol Oliver would just come back and find a pond dug I can get away with it just because I do all the cooking and housework and laundry so me going on strike would be really bad for him

                              Ok so here ya go....

                              You get the pond as the source for your outdoor Aquaponics project, therefore your recycling as your using the water from the pond to grow vegetables to feed the family which in turn saves money on the grocery bill and keeps more money in the pocket? Oh and he can put a fire pit out there to so you can sit by the fire and have the soothing sounds of a waterfall.
