thanks, I feel it's no where near what I want yet but guess that's part of the fun.
Got taro, cana, water hycinth for the pond and planted some day lilys and creeping jenna at the edge and fern and most in the shade at the back. need plants to grow in now. water lilys pads have hit the surface. pond is 40" deep so takes awhile to get pads to the water surface.
Thank you, its starting to grow in more now, still have more plans to add edging plants and marginals. The 3 lilies are shooting up pads but it takes awhile to hit the surface from 40" down, hoping to get more spread of lilly pads to cover the surface.
Thanks, still not happy with the look. Its a new pond and pea soup green water is now what the water looks like. fish don't care but I do. I ordered a 55W UV clarifier to plumb inline to try to clear up the suspended algae.
Still working on plan for better mechanical filtration. I will be adding one more Koi and another lily today to get the surface of the pond covered and help with algae blooms.
My goal is water clarity to the bottom which is 44" depth, long way to go but that's why it's my hobby.
