Aro pond Depth

Just curious, what would be the ideal depth if your were to build an aro pond
would it be better to have 6 feet depth or just 3 feet depth?
==comments==
3ft deep enough。。。。no need till 6ft
>Hi Squid,
Your decision on pond depth should be based on the below,
If the surface area of the pond is large, but the depth is shallow, one heavy rainfall might drastically change the water parameters of the pond, with dangerous results。 On a hot day, water will evaporate much faster as well, thus whatever that is inside the pond will become more concentrated, water parameters will be affected as well。。。。。。

planning to have 10 ft x 6 ft x ??depth pond
but its just in the planning stage, I think might take a long time before i can proceeed
Depper would make water parameters more stable but also thinking if have to go into pond and clean , 3 to 4 feet woyuld be best。
btw for rainfall ,Aquarium does it have big effect on ponds? or will it be safer to have a roof?

Putting a roof above takes a good portion of the rain factor away, also reduce the number of leaves falling into the pond (if you have a tree nearby)。 You just need to worry about figuring out an optimal filtration system so that cleaning can be kept to a minimum。 But that would deviate from this topic。
In any case, the deeper, the better, so long its within tolerance and management level。。。。 ^_^

Aro pond Depth AROWANA Forum For interest sake。。。。
Rainfalls does affect ponds alot, can even kill a whole population of fishes under extreme cases。。。。 PH can drastically change, not to mention other parameters, in the event of an acid rain。。。 worst。。。。
in any case, if you have enough curiosity,
If you have a spare tank of reasonable size, like 3ft tank, and you have the time。。。。 If you know there is going to be a heavy rain, leave the tank outside to collect the rain。 After the rain, measure the height of the rainwater collected (you will be surprise at how high it can be)。 Take that value multiply by 10。 This should be the very bare minimum depth of the outdoor pond。
In layman terms, that should be equivalent of about 10% water change per heavy rainfall。

Thanks, It will take a while before i can build a pond, but come rainy season,。 i will try to collect rain water to mseasure。
