Hello. My name is Duncan . I live in Lower New England. Hobbies are old motorcycles, tropical fish, gardening, and now pond fish. I have a small 600 gal pond with shubunkin and comets. Almost everything I do is homemade D.I.Y. on the cheap. Im enjoying the forum so far. Hoping to help where I can. Thanks -Duncan

Welcome Duncan! You will like it here, lots of friendly helpful people. I am also a gardener, tropical fish keeper (angels and discus) and have just finished a new pond.

Welcome Duncan, have you started planning to winterize your fish and pond?
I'm also cheap, I mean DIY....

Welcome and I am a fellow cheap everything also .It does not have to be expensive to build a pond .The liner and pumps are always the biggest cost you will spend .

Welcome @Limeymotors ! I am also big on DIY, but somehow my DIY ends up costing me more than if I hired it out! But it's all fun anyway - and I learn a lot along the way!

I did all of mine and it was hard but to much fun to remember all the dumb things I did each time .Like getting stuck under the liner when I put it in the pond .It was easier to spread the liner out by getting under it when I do it by myself .Each time I had my liner destroyed i went a little bigger
