My pond is green. :( It doesn't look quite as bad as this photo, but it is definitely green with some blanket weed floating in it.

Having put all that effort into dredging it and refilling it, this is a cause of some annoyance! I'm assured it is "the time of the year" and the result of lots of sunlight, but I'm still annoyed. I've been out and invested in some more pond plants - two more oxygenators, which make a total of four in a pretty small pond! Hoping it clears up soon - I can't see the fish swimming about any more, not unless they are at the top anyway.

I wanted to get a solar powered fountain while I was at the garden centre, but they don't stock them. I'm going to look online and see if I can come up with one.

Beautiful picture, C

Am rather pooped now or would write more (prattle with usual gusto)

Have a great rest of the weekend and break

Yes I'd be frustrated if it was green after a lot of effort too..
good luck with finding the fountain..
sorry I have been quiet lately, still thinking though, x

Thanks Mandy - not my photo though; I swiped it from another site lol!

Katie - thanks. No joy with the fountain as yet - have put it on hold for now.
