Mine just has a solar pump, so it's stagnant a lot of the day.....I have a ton of mosquito fish and they eat all the larvae from the mosquitos though.

I like it! Looks good as the center of your star!

Here's a shot...you can see the critters in the water.The glads planted at back are starting to get their buds.I get dragonflys& butterflys land on the pads for a drink.
