The older thread had too many posts, taking too long to pull up and needed to be updated anyway. So let's start off fresh!!!
We're small fry compared to most of you since we only have a 6x6 Goldfish pond made of landscaping timbers and construction grade black plastic for a liner. We've had it for 7 years and had to replace the liner once, when the English Bulldogs decided to take a swim, their toenails made a couple small holes.
In addition, we have 2 approximately 3x5 black oval containers used for feeding cattle which we start off each spring with a new batch of fish and plants. We got these at the feed store for about $30 and they make great little ponds to sit on the porch.
Let us know who you are and post pictures PLEASE!!!.
