Hi everyone.\n\nI am planning my first pond and I'm pretty excited. I've been lurking around the forum trying to learn as much as possible and decided to register. I have been addicted to fresh water and saltwater aquariums for the past 8 years. My wife and I recently bought our first house and always said we would like to have a garden/fish pond when we got a house. \n\nWe are planning on building a above ground setup on our covered/screened in porch. I'm thinking it will be around 150-200 gallons. Kind of small but I think it will be a good size to get our feet wet with pond keeping.\n\nAnyways, I hope to learn alot!
