1. Measure the area for your pond. When digging the hole for the pond, make it a little larger than measured to allow for several layers of lining materials. Sloping sides rather than steep will ensure that your lining materials wont slide out of position. Use a thin layer of sand or underlay on all sides of the hole before adding the liner. Doing so will stop stones or roots from tearing holes in the liner and causing leaks.

I got some (arroy) yummy noodles and a cold drink and ambled through the shaded courtyard towards the Chao Phraya River. On reaching the river I walked down a small pier that was unusually busy. Everyone there it seemed had bought a large bowl of fish food and where throwing it into the river. I looked down and there they were… hundreds upon hundreds of Chao Phraya Catfish or Pla Tepa as they are know locally and Pangasius sanitwongse in the Latin (Don’t you love Wikipedia?).
