Hello everybody,
I’m new here, but not new to ponding. I recently started an Instagram account for my frogs and pond. I’ve been fielding some questions about ponding and thought I should get back into some forums and refresh my memory on how to do things lest I give out bad info. I DIY built my pond 14 years ago, it’s 17’x 9’ and 2’ at the deepest part. I have a bottom drain into savio skimmer and biofalls. I have goldfish and bullfrogs and plants. I’ll be doing a lot of reading and maybe asking a few questions. Ask me about my frogs, I love them and got plenty of pictures.

Illinois 5b too! Looks like you have a 14 year head start on your pond though. I plan to start construction in the spring.

Congratulations, what kind of setup are you planning?
I was gifted a 300 gal rubbermaid stock tank, a 150 gal prefromed plastic liner, and 20' x 45' of edm liner so its kinda up for grabs at this point. Lol

ah, wink at the stock tank, close your eyes to the preform, and say 'hello, Dolly!' to the liner! We'll get you into LPS lickety-split!
