Hi Folks,
I'm Mike and I have been into aquariums for about 50 years<G>

I got back into it last spring when my daughter asked for one of my aquariums.
I had several left over after giving my son my 60 gallon a couple of years back.

I decided to strt up my guppy tank to keep my daughter supplied during the learning process.

I like planted tanks and also put in a pond this year and I'm working on an insulated container, 500 galon as a winter pond.
44 W X 48 T X 60 long

Space is a problem when you live in a seniors mobile home park (S Surrey).

I'm just waiting on the 1/2" X 33" X 34" tempered glass to put in the side of it as a viewing port.

Mike

welcome to BCA, I'm sure we would all love to see the pond build in progress if you want to take some photos.

Hi Folks,
I uploaded a photo of my pond area and the box I'm making into one here:

Mike's Ponds and fish.

I moved the fish from the kidney pond into my 27 gallon tank inside so I can re arrange the layout as a have another 4X7ft plastic pond to add to the mix.

Mike

The local racoon likes it which is why I want to make it more secure.

It is a work in progress as I have another preformed pond liner to install.
It is suprising how many 5 gallon buckets of dirt I have to haul way.
