Like you say, the harder work is yet too come, i.e looking after it. My wife said too me when I first built mine " What the hell are you doing to the garden?" She loves it now when the sun is out and she hears the water fall flowing......
I did not see your reply on here, Yes, I have a 30 watt U.V and foam filters etc. I was just wondering why the weed grew in the winter, Pond was clear in the months leading upto November time.
I have some tetra blanket weed treatment stuff in the shed. I do not want to put any chemicals in there at the moment though. I am having a problem with a sidewards Koi ( see thread ) and do not want anything in there that might make the problem worse for it.
I am interested in what you say about Barley straw and Micron bags though. I am assuming you put these in your filter tank?
