    So we decided to upgrade out old 250 gallon preformed pond and make it bigger for the fish.This was the first time ive used a liner, ( 45mil firestone EPDM ).
    So far its not looking too bad,, of course its a work i progress,and no where near finished , but the fish seem alot happier.
    The new pond is 8x8 and the deepest part is 2.5 ft.
    ( the second photo is the older pond )
