I can't do a pond because of the loose cats and dogs around town my fish would be eaten. And in winter they'd still need to come inside.

And make sure your floor can support at least 1200 pounds! Water is 8 lbs per gallons. 135 x 8 is 1080. When you add substrate and deco. It adds up!

They wouldn't need to come inside there is equipment for cold months to heat the water up. And things that break the ice.

PLUS at my friends house they have a pond setup and they also have 2 cats and 4 dogs. The dogs swim in the pond from time to time...

Hey I have a question... If its not to personal. You said "us kids here" How old are you exactly? I'm just asking because I've never heard of a kid trying to get a 6 ft tank pieces out, build it themselves and do it correctly lol.

I live in Nebraska it blizzards here at least once a winter. Some one in town had a pond but the stray cats ate them all. She's only a couple blocks away from here. And a guy had his tank in the garage his tank froze solid last winter.
