Does anyone...?

Hey I'm currently in the process of looking for a 250 + gallon indoor pond for my turtles.So between 250-400gallons. I was wondering if anyone else has one,& where did you get it,plus how much did you pay? Yes,it must be INDOOR because I want my turtles indoor& weather conditions wouldn't allow for outdoor living anyway
I checked Wal-Mart& Canadian tire btw.None there I'll even consider buying online if anyone has any links???

I have a GREAT article somewhere about a home-built one. It actually looked really simple, if you're up for the task. He just used some landscaping timbers and a pond liner and large rocks - the article explained in detail how it was done.

Let me know and I'll see if I can find the article on line. If not, I could even mail you a copy.

Do you have The Home Depot or Lowes there? Most large home improvement warehouses carry the preformed liners.... then using landscaping bricks or timbers along with a filter you should be all set.
Otherwise have you considered going to a farm supply place and buying a stock tank and filling it with different rocks and such so they could have "land" to be on?

I would do a Google search for Pond Forums.... I know my dad is a member of a bunch, but I don't have the names off hand.

Steph had a pretty big one for her turts and she got it at Canadian Tire.It was big and even had a little area for basking.Have you asked anyone at CT?Because maybe they have some in back or can order one for you? Steph got hers in the spring,so maybe they only carry them spring/summer.

I noticed in the spring they DO have ponds in Canadian Tire.It's possible that I can wait till then.My turtles aren't full grown so it's not a "must" at the moment as much as it's a "want" for me
