I thought about raising it off the floor, but I thought it would still draw in dirt off the sides - am I correct?
It seems to be like a really thick algae, sort of stringy. I dont think its blanket weed because thats a light greeny colour isnt it?
I have a lot of plant coverage in the pond, but they are a good distance away from this pump, and my other pump which is right in amongst the plants never clogs up.
I recently added 3 grass carp as I thought they would help with the problem, but they seem to only eat floating plants. Maybe a few weather loaches would do the trick?
