This pond is about 14 years old and located in Nakhon Ratchasima (AKA Korat) in Northeast Thailand. It originally had an HDPE liner, but is now ferrocement. Construction photos here: Pond Construction

Fountain and stream. The stream is over a foot deep and full of gravel and sand. It keeps the pond crystal clear.

A couple weeks ago, we made a trip to the hatchery about a hour away.
I bought another 150 hybrid bluegills, 2 gallons of fathead minnows for
the perch in the pond, 2 gallons of aqua shade pond dye.

The dye gives the pond a pleasing color, but more importantly, reduced light penetration of
the wave length that promotes weed and algae growth. The dye reduces the
growth and the 2 gallons I bought should last me through the end of 2023.

Lastly were the 8 bags (44 lbs ea) of 3/16" Ziegler floating fish food pellets.
I feed them from May through the end of Oct. Hopefully the 8 bags will get
me through the end of season this year.

This pic is from 2 weeks ago right after I added about a half gallon of Aqua Shade.

Central Florida. We enjoy summer as many people go back up north and the pace of life slows down and it is quieter. The pond is in half shade so the pond doesn’t heat up too much. The fish do well, they just get hungrier!
I live in Thailand so I understand the tropical climate. I gave up on fish because of all the predatory birds in this area. Anyway, I very much like the look of your pond. My kind of landscaping.

And BIG NESSIE #2 IS BACK I found the skeleton of big Nessie #1 last year! Have not managed to get a picture yet, it is wide long and eating frogs and fish.

The tiny tad is a tree frog tad, the larger one, green frog. The bog is full of them.
