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.

@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!)

Hi Lisak1, I'm located in Prospect Heights. Send me a PM on the pond store near you. I'd like to know. Rob
