Hey everyone. I have been MIA for a while and wanted to pop in. So many projects going on that I had to refine where I spent my time for a while but it's time to check I. And see what's going on here too. I will share where my pond is currently now I think in its 3rd yr.

Hi and welcome back! I have to say both your fish and pond look amazing. Can you give any details as to how big your pond is and the equipment you have set up for it?

You will always win my prize for best pond view - both the pond and the view beyond are just spectacular!

Yes I actually have a build thread long here where it has tons of details because I was building it with guidance from this group so it came to life right here :) I have made a few minor changes and need to rework a few things like the bog filter and the larger waterfall. But it's a process. Basically as it sits it's about 10k gallons and is filtered via a bog filter (which is currently setup more as a down flow gravel filter because the outflow is going to be fed from the bottom drain which will feed the water fall primarily. It has a DIY skimmer that sits under a little walk out deck that feeds the bog.

Thank you, yes we certainly love the view and it played a huge role in why we bought this house. We are very excited to watch it transform as it matures from the empty space of dead grass that it began as.

Hey, good to see you back and the pond looks great, like the landscaping around it as well.
Thank you, I will try to post more pics as things start to bloom.
