I'm so glad i found this site lol hi all I'm paul, i installed an outside pond last summer its a bermuda (mere) 855ltr. there where 10 goldfish but the cat had 1 so there's now 9,but again you have probably heard this time and time again but there's algae in it, i do have a pump with filter and uv on it,and i have removed most of the algae that i can see,we do have toads because i can hear them at night. when i removed the algae i checked to make sure toads wasn't in it, so I'm happy with that,but i would like to know about these algae plants? i have 1 lilly that looks like this yr could be its yr but its right at the bottom of the pond with a green leaf at the moment. we added 3 other plants to the sides of which I'm not sure of there names. there was oxigen plants as well but there gone little floating things they where but i think the fishies liked the taste of them. we did have a few passes of the black and yellow dragon flies but nothing happened with them. so algae prevention should i go for suckers or plants??
