pond water for garden

San Marcos, TX(Zone 8b)

I have a 400 gallon pond full of goldfish. The water is slightly green since I dont use a pump or uv sterilization. I wonder if the fish poop works as a good fertilizer. Also, would the green algae in the water act like liquid seaweed to help root growth. I would prefer to use the pond water to water my plants than city water.

I have read that it is good water to use. Someone with more knowledge will be along shortly to let you know for sure.

Hmmm. I knew the waste would be good but I always wondered about the algae. I will continue doing it. Thanks.
