Hello I am new to pond building. I bought a prefabbed pond this past Spring before I knew better. It is about 175 gallons and 18" deep. So I brought my fish into the basement for the Winter. I pumped their water into a 150 gallon tub used for farm animals drinking. Now my questions are: I am going to build a much bigger pond. I am thinking 14' long x 8' at one end x 11' at the other end. How deep should I make this? Should I wait till Spring or do it now and get them back out before Winter. I live in Connecticut? Can I build it and put a decent patio stone edging around the top ( I have a mish mash of them here then in the Spring redo the edging? I am not sure what I want my final look to be as far as that goes and I am going to build a mini waterfall on one end. Ready set go with suggestions!
