So we have a small water feature with a water fall that I decided to attempt to stock with goldfish... wow did I not realize what I was in for. I've added a filter to my waterfall but I was still having cloudiness issues. I believe the issue is mucky soil is running into the pond itself. I've started to dig up around the edges to find that the liner actually stopped at some point and the soil, muck and mulch was actually in the pond itself (which I'm sure is causing my cloudiness after every rain and sprinkler session. I've started to dig around the perimeter to expose the liner (and in essence make the pond smaller), but now I'm not sure what to do. What do I back fill with? Sand? Rocks? Clay? Gravel? I'll try and upload a picture to show you what I'm dealing with. I believe I'm going to have to make the pond even smaller to achieve some type of tapered feel to the liner. Please don't bash it... like I said, it came like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
