What do you keep in the pond? I see you have a Melanochromis species in the net. Looks like a great way to raise mbuna... :thumb:

Thanks. The turtles (about 10 or so) are too slow to catch the cichlids. I also have a bunch of guppy/feeders in there that the bigger fish eat. I also have a few plecos about 12-18"s Whats funny is that I have had baby turtles hatch from this pond for the past 2 years.

Thanks, I dont have a heater for it yet. The temp does not drop too much at night so they are fine until we start getting some cooler weather..which wont be for a while. :D

Nice pond I live in the Ocala area in florida ,and have a pond about the same size in my backyard. I have had good luck with peaccoks , psuedos , ,and surprisingly cyprichromis ,and featherfins have done well out there as well.

lol nobody throws pennies in there. I did all the labor myself, but I have around 1500 in all the rock and I forget how much the pump and filtration cost.
Sureshot-- Do you have a pic of your pond or any of your fish?
