I still can not believe it.
it never was this clean! I took a wheelbarrow full of leaves out if it. Cut off all the roots off the water iris that were 10000 feet long. Fed everyone my million dollar gold pond tabs. ( i got ripped off at the store and didnt know it) YES! I THINK I DO NEED MORE PLANTS FOR IN IT> NO FISH! JUST PLANTS> I stil have to restack the stone and hide the tube for the waterfallp/s/ see. if you look at the other posted photo . you can see the algae and how dirty is is sorta. hard to tell from that photo. TRUST ME> IT WAS BAD
