Future Pond, is concrete bad?
I have been looking into making a pond in the near future. I have seen various ways to build ponds and I have personally seen some very beautiful large ponds made out of concrete/cement. In a battle over cash, this way seems more cheaper as well as a larger pond, but is it safe for fish? I have until around Feb. or so to do this but I just wanted to get some early opinions on this. Thanks.
concrete is safe, but it needs time to cure. it jacks the ph sky high for awhile and that can only be fixed by lots of water changes.

Its really gonna be tough to figure out the best area with the largest space.
