:It is best to try and make your pond around 3 feet deep. This will also benefit the little guys as it will help them escape predation by allowing them to dive down to a reasonably safe depth at the first sign of a predator.

Thanks so much for the advice. Based on what you have given me I'm thinking about an oval around 275 gallons (3.5x3.5x3) with one side beveled into a ramp to get out of water to bask. One question though, for hibernation do I need to lay down a layer of rock or pond gravel to give them an area to rest in during the winter months? Or do they hibernate out of the water? This is one last area I'm a little unsure about. Thanks againg for all the help. I'll post pictures when I get it completed.
