Thread: New pond

Hybrid View

  1. Default New pond


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm toying with the idea of building an outdoor pond in a space we have near the pool. Haven't got as far as working out capacity yet but looking at building for 2 juvenile small turtles, 5 goldfish and maybe some snails.
    First question is will the goldfish eat the turtles (goldfish are 4 - 5 year old comets and 6 - 7") Are there any fish the turtles wont eat once they are big enough? Got truckloads of research to do yet, but gotta start somewhere.
    BTW I should be able to get a licence (legal requirement here) without problems. Thoughts and suggestions?

    goldfish shouldn't mess with your turtles. they aren't exactly the predatory type.

    whats a ballpark figure on the size of this pond? just wondering because DIY filtration is pretty easy to build if you wanted.
    Thar she blows!!!

    Probably looking around 300 - 350 gallon, original idea was to set up a sump type filter, may even go hydroponic or aquaponic

    we built a 'bucket-filter' out of a garbage pail for our pond. very simple filters to make and you can build them any size. Aeonflame has a bucket-filter build using a 5g pail here on the forum.

    I doubt the Goldfish will be harming the turtles in any way, they are definitely not the aggressive type. I recommend Shubunkin's as an addition to your pond. I would also say that adding snails are a necessary part of a well balanced ecosystem. What kind of filtration where you thinking about?
