First fall, pond opened in March 2010, dug in Aug. 2009.
Pond Volume: 750 gallons
Pond Dimensions: 8 feet by 10 feet by 2 to 3 feet deep
Location of Pond: Chelan County, Washington, USA
Date Pond Was Built: August 2009
This pond contains goldfish, snails, and plants.
The pond was hand dug in very rocky soil after 20 years of procrastination. The pond is in full
sun. Summers are hot (up to 100 degrees) so more shade producing plants will go in to the water
in 2011. There were seven 2" to 5" goldfish in the new pond in April 2010. By early fall, there
were DOZENS of 1"fry. I intend to keep the fish population to less than 10. I gravitate towards
shubunkins. What an adventure this has been.
