Any predator for mosquito fish? by Carl Beyer
Not sure what breed they are, kinda greenish blue, I have been following all the notes about them, and haven't heard of a good control method. They seem to be taking over my small pond, that is already over stocked. When I feed, the Koi and Goldfish seem to stay away from the food, and the dozens...

Muratic Acid High PH High Alkaline by Steve
Hi, I have a small pool about 9ft 650 gallons. I had a problem with cloudy water. I have a ph of 8.1 and akaline of 205 and calium hardness of 330. I put in a little muriatic acid and it cleared up the cloudy water instantly. It seems I still have a high ph and a high alkaline level. I also...

Nitrite problem by Carl Beyer
I have a 400 gallon pond with too many fish... just gonna admit that up front. I have a fluidized sand filter and a 1 cubic foot lava filter along with a good plant load in the pond and lava filter. My LFS tests my water for me, and for the past couple of months I have been running at a .02 (or...

Confession by Barbara2245
I went out to vote in a local election and on the way home stop to dig up some cattails growing in the ditch down the road. It was a fairly busy highway but fortunately only three or four cars went by. Only one had a good piece of root because I had to move fast. The ground was quite dry. I had to...

How Much Maintenance? by BenignVanilla
When I went at my pond design, I purposely included concepts like a bottom drain and a shallow VF to reduce my maintenance. I have A LOT of plants, and do not intend to feed my fish, in the hopes that I can strike a balance of plants and animals. So far, my first season, things are going well. I...

Greenish Tint! by George Rice
I would appreciate advice on how to eliminate the green tint in my pond water. The water is "clear" in the sense that I can see the bottom but the green tint, which I assume is algae related, is not good. My system consists of the following: - A 4000 gallon concrete pond (with black epoxy coating)...

O/T - Box Turtle diet by Anne Lurie
Yesterday, I noticed a Box Turtle (I think that's what it was) next to one of my raised beds. Actually, I nearly stepped on the poor guy, because I wasn't expecting any surprises there! The turtle seems to be missing one of its front legs. I don't know how this affects its ability to move...
