No I was saying that if you got a pond started, there are many different pond equipment items to choose from so that doesn't happen.

I'm 18. But I don't graduate till the end of this coming school year. And I'm really dedicated to my fish. I've grown up with betas, moved to guppies and gold fish. And on the building part my family makes and builds thing for a living.

Why do you have a 5m :1f ratio? It should be the complete opposite

You should have a 3f:1m ratio

As for an outside solution look around at stock tanks, cheaper and by borrowing ideas from your local horse supplier can make things easier...

My sister lives in Sterling CO, we grew up there..they took a basic 300 gallon tank, built a wood frame around it and crammed the area around it with 4 inch foam to give it insulation, that with a under water tank heater should set you up nicely for the winter...as for keeping unwanted critters out grandpa used a simple wood frame with chicken wire that sat over his minnow tanks(course he often said it failed to keep the worst one out, me)
