New pond

We are currently building a new pond, hopefully will have it finished in May.

We keep koi and this is the new pond to give them a lot more space. For a history so far see http://www.alternativeeden.com/2012/...ld-so-far.html

Welcome to the forum, Mallotum.
That isn't a pond, it's a swimming pool. Looks brilliant.
Makes my pond look like a puddle.

That looks really good - quite a job! My small wildlife pond is currently full of frog spawn!

That is an amazing pond and its been a labour of love I suppose.
Makes mine look tiny.
Finished cleaning it out today so will get some "feeder" fish at the pet store to restock it and hope the blue heron does not view on that as an easy meal.
Expect the frogs to come back though where they come from I have no idea.
