[QUOTE="Shelley, post: 227753, member: 6713"]Ahhhh John!!! I am 54 am I am in ok shape but I can't be climbing around those slick rocks all day every day. Today the green menace got me and I slipped and fell on my butt so hard I'm still seeing stars AND red and blue stripes! My husband already thinks that I spend an inordinate amount of time in the pond. In my other life, I am a college professor. As soon as I got out for the summer I have been an algae, scum and pooh removal obsessed zombie who has some rather odd bruises to explain.[/QUOTE]\nOK, let's fix this.\n1) Exactly how much food are you feeding? Cutting down on feeding will make a big difference. \n2) What kind of filter and pump do you have in your pond?
