I had posted another topic regarding my water in the pond... but we were more talking about what plants and such I needed to get.. I have a water hyacinth now, 3 small water lettuce, and some parrots feather.
I have a filter with my pump, the kind with the foam inserts and the little black bio balls. I just don't think it is doing a very good job or something. The bottom of my pond is very dirty.. with, well, dirt. It is brown clay.. but that isn't what concerns me so much.. it is the water itself. It is brown too.. at least it looks brown.. a dark brown.. not clay brown, like the dirt. A friend of mine who also has a pond said it is just algae.. she hasn't seen it though.. and it isn't green.. it is brown. I don't mind some algae growth on the bottom and sides.. but I want my water to be clear.. I can't see my filter at the bottom and when my fish go deep I can't see them either. :o(
I bought some Pond Water Clear at Lowe's when I was there several days ago.. I put the right amount in for my size pond, I kind of had to guess on the gallon size, but I think I was pretty close. The stuff is for cloudy water.. well it didn't do a thing. So what should I do?
Do I need to get stuff for algae??
