Green film on the rocks. by Bob Knight
This is our first year having a pond and it has been a learning experience. One problem we may be having is this dark green film on the rocks where the waterfall happens. We have 10 goldfish in the pond and they seem to be doing fine, but I wonder if this green stuff is normal. What is happening...

A New Use for String Algae by BenignVanilla
So I got busy with life and neglected the pond for about a month. The result? The fish are getting huge. The frogs outnumber the fish like 10 to 1. The plants are growing like crazy. I also had a ton of string algae, which turned out to be great. In removing the algae, I found lots of pine needles...

Turtles and Frogs - mother nature is cool by Chad
I happened to catch a show featuring amazing animals and they featured the North American Painted Turtle and a frog that I cannot remember its species.

pond skaters by no6
I have a few pond skaters in my small pond, but am concerned that as winter draws in and the lilies die back and are removed, there will be no 'land' surface on which they can rest (or whatever they do!). How do others deal with this? David

I am so tickled by FBCS
I purchased a Craftsman wet vac for myself to clean my pond. I never thought the purchase of a wet vac would give me this much pleasure. I told my husband it was mine (early Christmas present) hands off. Joann
