I think the amonia would be a good start. I've heard also that they don't like the smell. I have bee hives and the skunks/raccoons go after them, so I buy carpet strips (the little wooden strips with small nails in them) and I lay those out in front of the hives. The raccoons and skunks have very sensitive feet and won't walk over them to get to the hives. If you can determine what area the raccoon is traveling to get into your pond you could try a few carpet strips as well. They aren't very pricey and can be bought at any hardware store. Good luck.
