Nice pond. It should provide years of enjoyment. Work long term will be involved similar to raising kids. The aeration people love ponds similar to yours that has arms. To properly aerate this pond it would need a minimum of five maybe six diffusers. The same surface area and square or oval shape would need two diffusers. Whenever you install aeration make sure the compressor will easily handle the 23 ft depth which means 15-20 psi. Aeration will slow down the pond aging process.
