i used gravel from the local quarry. it drains well. retains some heat for over the night. i put in about 6" but at $20 a ton its pretty affordable.

most used totes will have an information label on frame plate. if its not there its not safe unless its an unused tote. all the ones i have have food grade products listed on them

i also cut them in half and use them as water troughs for the goats. easy to empty once in a while and give a good clean out.

So i've got to the stage were i have my 2 tank/ponds built. the larger tank feeds tubes along the North wall that will have neti pots in.
i'm not sure though which way to go with the other tank/pond. floating trays or flood beds with bell syphons

what are the pro's and cons of each.

Thanks Phil

Lucky that's not the case here, the local DNR officer will chase up anyone that deliberately harms/kills wild life around here.

i wish i could say stuff like that doesn't happen here.
I've seen people aim for turtles crossing the road. if i see the critters I'll stop and get them off into a field.
good idea about the dash cam though.
