hello to everyone. This is my first post so please be patient. The pictures are of THE POND (after what my wife and I went through to build it, it deserves all caps).

I conceived and built it as a birthday present for my wife last November. It is between 1200-1500 gallons depending on how recently we have had rain.

It was a labour of love and she loves it.

I hope you get some enjoyment from the pictures as I have gotten much info and enjoyment from the forum and site.

g'day

Looks great, a lot of rock work obviously. I really like the multiple layer waterfall and the orb water feature.

thank you all for the welcome and comments

figured I would add a pic or two taken this morning when the inhabitants are not being so shy.

I will try to write a few posts as to construction this weekend. I learned a lot, I sweated a lot. I got high off of pvc cement a lot.

once again I apologize for quality of pics but good camera was stolen and is not replaced yet.

I thank you all for the welcome and am really enjoying fishlore
