    Default Galvanized water trough?

    Hi all. I have been researching the use of a galvanized watering trough for an outdoor pond. what i was most curious about was the toxicity factor on fish. I have seen conflicting reports on the matter. some say that there is a danger of the zinc leaching out but i have also seen projects online with no visible liner with fish being kept. any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated. I was looking at the plastic type liners but the price is higher. I also thought that maybe placing some liner sheeting inside would possibly mitigate the issue. I wanted to do something above ground to eliminate it being fairly permanent. since i will be unable to dig.

    I would personally just line the inside with a pond liner.
