Hello Everyone,
I am planning on building a garden pond that is 180sqft at about 2225 gallons with an 8x8 bog/wetland filter fed by a bottom drain and skimmer. I plan to keep a koi, turtles and ducks. I had a pond at my old house that I built without doing enough research and was constantly retro fitting it. I enjoyed redesigning and building new things for it but this time I want to get as much correct from the beginning. I look forward to hearing your insight on this forum.

Welcome to the obsession'!

With turtles a bottom drain is bad idea UNLESS you create a baffle above the drain and cover it with stone thus removing a strong draw and removing any chance of them getting stuck and drowning.

The full size images are all still there and you can insert them as full size images in to posts still, just click "insert > full image" on the attachment preview when you're writing your posts. It's just a new way that the forum software upgrade works :).
