    Nice job Nancy! We moved in to a house that already had a fish pool. No waterfall though. The one problem we've had over the years (since 1964) is keeping the Raccoons out. Our pond is 2 1/2' deep at one end, and 3 1/2 ' deep at the other. We have had to put netting over it and a beeper to scare off the Raccoons. From what I understand, a pond has to be at least 3 1/2 ' deep to keep Raccoons from getting all your fish. Ours is much smaller than yours, and if I had it to do over I would make it quite a lot deeper so the fish have a place to hide when the Raccoons come a callin'!
