Steve,

I'll probably just start testing the water. I'm not sure that water changes will be needed with the proper filtration, etc. I had a 2,500 gallon pond back in 96-97. It went without a water change for a couple of years. I had a bunch of catfish grow from 1/2 inch to 7+ inches, basking turtles hatched out babies there, frogs put eggs in it, etc. It become a "real pond" as far as nature was concerned. All I did was run a pump & biofilter like I have now. It had a bunch of floating plants that limited the algae growth. I used a liner on that pond but I didn't have any turtles over 10-12 lbs. at the time.

::If you use cement you would really have to polish it down good or they will get sores on their feet. dirt,sand,or clay would be a more natural setup but harder to clean.Where will you drain/pump the water if you do a water change? Steve
