    A couple of weeks ago I set up my 1st pond. I ran out and bought fish for it right away. I became very upset when I had a hard time seeing any fish. The only fish I got glimpses of was the all white feeder. I wanted to do everything from change the water to adding white gravel to bottom. Members advice was not to do anything but give it time, keep testing the water. I finally could not stand it any more, after work I was going to change the murky water for clean clear water. I had a long day at work and it never happened. I did nothing. This morning when I checked pond water was much clearer, I was able to see 5 of the fish swimming around :)Glad I listened and waited.
