Hi Scott,
The deepest part of my pond where I keep my filter is around 18 inches. However, the whole pond is sloped very gradually and contains many plants and logs, etc. The point is not to force them to swim. 3 ft seems to deep for me. As for predators, your going to want to cover the pond w/ water hyacnth and lilly's so they can't be seen and they can hide. By the end of the summer my pond is always full of aquatic plants and the turtles love to hide in them. The pond is about 10 by 8 ft and the land area is a little smaller but almost the same size. It contains a beach area w/ sand and a planted area w/ some grass, ferns, other plants, and a mixture of dirt and sand.

:Hey jesse,

:I appreciate all your help...sorry I just missed the plants in your original post.

:When you say shallow what is considered shallow? I also heard that too shallow is not good for predators...I was thinking the center around 3 feet deep and gradually slope to the sides.

:When you say large area of land what is large? Can anyone give me rough estimates on pond size...dimensions for a 2.3 group of spotteds. what about 2.3 spotteds and 1.2 balndings? Any rough dimensions on how much land? I just am not sure what you mean when you say large area.

:Thanks,
:Scott
