Water hyacinth is one of the biggest aquatic weeds
in eastern australia. Aint it weird how something can have a problems growing
in one part of the world and just become the most aggressive SOB somewhere else.
==================================================I go out there a hundred times everyday and move a big umbrella around to give my fishies some shade.
Hey Cindy. Just get a rock or a bale of hay or anything and sit it on the pond edge overhanging the water. On the western side preferably to block hot afternoon sun. Even a dead branch with the leaves on each few days is better than moving the umbrella around. Or string a piece of shadecloth over the whole pond....
