Here are the results from the survey. There were a total of 21 responses, 14 "Northern" and 7 "Southern." The respondents reported a total of 61 species/species groups in their ponds. In explanation of "species groups," I grouped responses like "minnows" and 7 different species of minnows I had never heard of before (Thanks, Bill Cody!) together as "Miscellaneous minnows."

First, here are the species reported being in forum members' ponds (past, present, and planned), along with the number of times each was reported:
1(tie) LMB-Large Mouth Bass 17 entries
1(tie) BG-Bluegill 17 entries
3 CC-Channel Catfish15 entries
4(tie) HSB-Hybrid Striped Bass 10 entries
4(tie) GC-Grass Carp 10 entries
4(tie) FHM-Fathead Minnow 10 entries
4(tie) YP-Yellow Perch 10 entries
8 SMB-Smallmouth Bass 8 entries
9 RES-Redear Sunfish 7 entries
10 GShiner-Golden Shiner 6 entries
11(tie) Misc. BlHd-Bullheads 5 entries
11(tie) Walleye 5 entries
11(tie) RT-Rainbow Trout 5 entries
11(tie) BCp-Black Crappie 5 entries
15(tie) HBG-Hybrid Bluegill 4 entries
15(tie) Mosquito Fish-Gambusia 4 entries
15(tie) Misc. Minnows 4 entries
18(tie) Rock Bass 3 entries
18(tie) Misc, Suckers 3 entries
18(tie) BrnT-Brown Trout 3 entries
With 2 entries each: WB-White Bass, CNBG-Coppernose BG, GG-Georgia Giants, GSF-Green Sunfish, PS-Pumpkinseeds, Misc. Sunfish, TFS-Threadfin Shad, Misc. Chubs, NP-Northern Pike, CP-Chain Pickerel, WCp-White Crappie, Spoonbill/Paddlefish, Misc. Gar, Common Carp
And with 1 entry each: BGxRES, BC-Blue Catfish, FHC-Flathead Catfish, Tilapia, GShad-Gizzard Shad, Misc. Shiners, Misc. Darters, Sauger, Saugeye, Musky, BrkT-Brook Trout, Misc. Trout, Misc. Buffalo, Bowfin, Misc. Fish and Minnows, Waterdogs, Quillback, Brook Siversides, Goldeye, Drum, Redhorse

Next, what were the favorite fish? Here are the combined favorites:
1 LMB 7 votes
2 SMB 3 votes
3(tie) HSB 2 votes
3(tie) BG 2 votes
3(tie) YP 2 votes
and with 1 vote each: CNBG, GG, RT, BrkT, Black Bullhead

The Northern Favorites:
1 LMB 5 votes
2 SMB 3 votes
3(tie) BG 2 votes
3(tie) YP 2 votes
and with 1 vote each: HSB, Black Bullhead

The Southern (traditional South plus Arizona) Favorites:

and with 1 vote each: HSB, CNBG, GG, RT, BrkT

Notice that Trout are favored in the South?

Thanks, Theo.

Thanks, Theo. I think that survey type of threads will prove to be very valuable over time. You have provided us with some baseline info. Think about how this will change five years from now.
