      so I am playing with the idea of making a pond that is semi underground with a window in the side. has anyone had any experience with this. I have found a few places that make stainless frames for this reason but man they are expensive and the only ones I have found are from overseas so add a butt ton of shipping on top of that. I would like to make the above ground portion out of timber and line it with a regular pond liner. what is everyones thoughts?

      There's a guy on YouTube with a pond similar to the one you're talking about:

      I don't have any experience with this, but it seems to me that construction of this would be pretty complicated and expensive.

      Something that is much simpler would just be to put an inverted aquarium in the pond, and suck out the air if you want to see your fish from the side. You've probably heard of this, but if not, here's an example:

      post in the DIY section -you'll get better responses there in regards to building things yourself. I'm curious about this too as I'm going to upgrade to pond(s) soon and I actually would like to keep seeing my fish

      If I was doing this, I would dig a hole, just like a normal pond. Then I would weld a frame out of square tubing that goes over the hole, and is a couple of feet high, or as tall as you want the viewing panel to be. I would then cover the frame with plywood, and drop a big pond liner in so it covers the hole, as well as the portion that has been extended a couple of feet up. Then I would cut away the pond liner where I wanted the viewing panel to be, and silicone the panel in place. No experience in this, this is just how i would attempt to do this.
