@j.w Thanks What do you mean that just the the the stuff floating on the top will end up in the skimmer? The stuff at the bottom won't get sucked up? Or just the floating stuff will get caught in the filter and not the tiny stuff in the water, sorry I am a bit of a newbie
Welcome @Zuke !
Where's your pump? In the skimmer? In the pond? External?
What @j.w means is the debris that floats on the pond will get "skimmed" off by the water getting pulled to the skimmer (if you have one) and the pump is housed in the skimmer. If your pump is on the bottom of the pond (or drawing from the bottom if it's external) then more of the debris from the bottom would get drawn to the pump, which may not be a good thing. Most people use some kind of pre-filter to keep an in-pond pump from getting clogged with debris. Fine debris that passes through the pump would get caught in your mechanical filtration (filter pads generally) in your waterfall box. But again - much of this depends on your individual pond set up. Share more about your pond and the answers can be more specific to your situation!
Yes I have several that are white and also orange and white. I have some also that are called Shubunkins and they are kind of a calico type color. You can't see them here tho.
