Brown floating scum by David
I bought a house with a pond. The is pond oval (10x14x3) ~3000 Gallons...the pond has never been clear. It has been green. I attributed this to the light on UV clarifier being burned out. Now that spring has come I am often getting brown sludge floating on top of the water. I can scoop it out...

Good news/bad news by Mike Patterson

String Algae! by Lisa
What is the best way to get rid of string algae? At least, I think that is what I have. It looks like plants growing from the bottom of the pond up. It looks just like seaweed. I hate adding stuff to the water. The last time I did that, my lilies got stunned and they didn't do as well. They...

The Amorous Anuran by Lieutenant Kizhe Katson
He showed up from who-knows-where a week or so back. Every evening, he sits on a rock at the side of the pond, emitting his loud trilling call. And I do mean LOUD. I hope someone answers him soon, poor boy...... -- Kizhé

Charcoal filter? by Jeff Lowe
Intro: I've been lurking for a few weeks and decided it's time to take the plunge. My son was given permission to catch goldfish (net) at pond and came home with 6 very nice comets, ranging from 4 to 9" length. They have been living in a 37 Gal tank (too small!) while we build a pond for them....

Charcoal Filter by Mike Bernardoni
Hi, I've never in 10 years had a problem with them. I guess it depends on your pond, fish load,debris falling in pond etc. I know of numerous people that use them successfully. I guess as with the lava rocks it depends on the variables and conditions of your pond. That's the fun thing about...
