    I call first dibs.
    Put my name first on that guest list John, and I'll take a 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport to go, with a tow package and a sailboat on a trailer.
    Thanks

    Actually you are thinking too small John, if I had my wish I would like my pond to cover the entire Earth, and wipe out all wars, pollution and all the bad people, and only me, my family and a few good people along with 2 of every kind of animal would survive on a big boat until the pond water subsided and we could come to rest on a tall mountain and begin re-inhabiting the Earth.
    For some reason this is starting to sound familiar, did somebody make this wish before?

    If I was to get back into aquariums I'd want to setup something like one of these aquascapes.

    I too have dreamed of a large pond with an integrated moat and an island in the center of the pond with a gazebo and it be accessible by boat. The only pumps would be floating aerating fountains. I may also throw in some air diffusers.

    very true about the bigger the pond the more work and cost .That is why I would prefer someone to take care of it and pay for it and i just have to enjoy it

    Either the water gardens of Giverny, that Monet painted, or the Japanese garden in Golden Gate Park.

    My dream pond would be about double the size of my current pond, only koi, have a bottom drain, be deeper, have more areas of vegetation and possibly a bog area....I have plans in my head, and I've got some idea of how to do it, just need the manpower and the $$ to do it!

    That is great!!! But I can go just a few minutes from my house and see it naturally. I live in the Ozark mountains in Arkansas. There is a good reason this is the natural state.

    I am sure your pond will be equally amazing.
