Default My pond

Well here is a great example as to why I shouldn't be left at home alone I get rather bored and today I decided hey I have the new pond for Midnight and I've finally recovered enough from Christmas shopping to have enough money for the pump for the waterfall. So After digging out the never ending hole and adding a few plants this is what i came up with. Its still got a lot more work and a need for a good clean out, some more plants and sand to line the bottom. But next week I'm hoping to get just one more axolotl. It does have a fly screen cover, that sits above the water just in case anyones wondering

How deep is this pond? Looks great as long as it's deep enough to prevent it from becoming to hot during the summer months.
