Lotsa info out there about pond building, D. There's a mail-order supply also with
great products and info called The Pond Guy.
Keep us posted on the progress!

Sounds like fun. Definitely share pictures with us.

If I lived in the South I'd be tempted to do a big cichlid pond built into a hillside with a glass side for viewing. Expensive but it would be neat.

i live like one hour from Chicago thats why im doing koi and if you dig past 4 feet deep your good with temp just need a light air flow to keep a hole in the ice and you can all ways just have it a pond in summer and ice rink winter and pull the cichlids before its cold

Greg from HCCC (a speaker at ACA) put up
one of those above ground kid pools in the summer
and grows out fish. He sometimes sits in it
with a snorkel and looks at the fish, lol.
