Hi all,

now since the Land is planned roughly in parts like too forest, house garden, Nursery, Aquaponics Greenhouses and  visitor's department......
basically all questions that I could sort with my wife you together we have a last but major obstacle to solve.

The Lake, wisely as water is a main subject we want it big enough.
130*45/90 meters as this is given by the topographical map we created.
Big enough also foreseeing to feed later the Greenhouses, but also as a fishing lake or at least to get some Arapaima in (or whatever).

Now, most if not all fishing Enthusiasts, Koi Lovers and Lake Owners would keep the level with a Pond Monk (see picture 1) which is the most standard and approved way.

But thinking of the amount of water that comes in one of Thailand's thunderstorms or in the rainy season itself I am looking also at the physical opportunities, which an overflow has.
Thinking here to let the Nature do it's job I got the idea to use it as a vacuum cleaner to at least get partial the the dirt like silt or rotten stuff from the bottom.
Furthermore I guess especially in tropical weather it would be a pity to lose the from the rain oxygenated surface water instead of sucking the low oxygen water about 6 meter deep from the bottom.
(see picture 2)

What is you opinion here. Is it wishful thinking or would this be a better option of an overflow?
