totally cool little pond! I LOVE the look of the waterfall, I didn't even notice it at first but I actually really like that, it's very simple and understated and blends in with the basking area, but still creates that nice flow (and i'm sure the pleasant running water sound)
Really well done, I'm sure the turtles are VERY happy in here compared with their tank!
I asked this question in your other thread too, but I guess it's really more appropriate in this one, (and as I said in the other thread, PLEASE pardon my ignorance if this is a dumb question, I don't know much about turtles or ponds
) BUT I'm just curious, why you don't just leave the walls low so the turtles CAN go between the 2 ponds if they wish? would it disrupt the ecosystem(s) in the 2 ponds to have them moving back and forth? would they hurt the koi? Again, I'm only curious!
And speaking of which, i also had NO idea that turtles were good enough climbers to get up nearly vertical walls like that! WOW! a very interesting new turtle fact!
