Actually, Ric, in Zone 9b the 18" would not be enough. You're right that evaporation would be a huge issue... and her fish would be poached even if not in full sun. The water warms up very quickly even in the shade here... and I'm 8b.

Here's a picture of my brother's DIY pond from early December. He lives just outside Cleveland and has to regularly cut holes in the ice during winter for the fish to breath during the snow months.
