I also had a ton of string algae, which turned out to be great. In removing the algae, I found lots of pine needles...

Has anyone ever used the Tetra 24 watt pond deicer? I live in Philadelphia, Pa. and want to use it in one of my 500 gallon ponds. Is a 24 watt heating element enough?

Evaporation rate guesses by bob carwell
Could somebody at least give me some very, VERY rough guesses as to on average how much water I might have to replace due to evaporation for a pond.

It's getting slow, people - so I thought I'd stir up a conversation regarding photography. Martin de Jong is probably the BEST "fishy fotographer" I've ever seen, and there are a LOT of good photographers out there! Theo, if you're reading this: do you know Martin? I know the Netherlands is not...

Mosquito Fish - pro & con? by Steve J. Noll
I'm thinking about adding some Mosquito Fish (Gambusia affinis) to my Koi pond for two reasons: to control the Koi population - I've heard they will eat fish eggs - my pond is near it's capacity... and to hopefully control the population of some very tiny caterpillars living on the bottoms of my...

Canna question by Nanceemo
Hi, ponders. : ) How do you care for cannas over the winter? Do they need to be taken out and if so, do you cut them back? Mine didn't bloom this summer, their first. Is that normal, and if not, what should I do to help them next year? They're planted in a soilless mix and I put some...

How To Stop Clogging Pond Pump by Chester Deja
I have a 5000 gph pump on my pond that feeds my waterfall. At the height of summer when all the algae blooms the pump gets clogged. I do not want to burn the pump up so I am looking for some ideas for a pre-filter or something that will keep the majority of debris away from the pump itself. I...
