    Just thought I'd share since so many on this forum have helped me as a newer pond owner. This will be our third summer with the pond and we are just amazed at how much joy and harmony it can bring to your yard. Here's a short video tour of our pond as spring takes hold.

    I think you nailed it @Jetz1138 ! BEAUTIFUL POND!

    How many gallons is your pond? I love the fish swimming in the shallow areas - so cool!

    The total gallons in the system is about 5,000 and the deepest part is 32". I also like it when the fish swim in the sallow streams. I really like to do the landscaping part of it, but trying to learn as much as I can about the pond eco system and fish care. This forum has helped us tremendously. There's always something new that pops up.

    Your pond is absolutely stunning @Jetz1138 , I could get lost out there for hours watching the fish and taking care of the plants.

    @Jetz1138 - where in Northern IL are you located? There's a pond store near me that does a tour every August of ponds, both their builds and DIY ponds. You should get on the tour! (So I can come and see it in person! haha!)

    stunning!!! enjoyed the landscaping as much as your pond. just terrific on all counts.

    i'm a newbie, would you mind sharing your filter system? i'm in the 'pond on paper' phase.

    thanks,
