My main issue with my pond is the clear water has caused a serious algae problem. I have got filamentous algae and Chara taking over my pond. I have had to introduce a water dye to darken the pond somewhat to goofball the growth. When the water warms I can use a copper based algaecide but they are harmful to zooplankton. The problems never end. Thanks for all the info! the copper based algaecide might also kill the crawfish. I used to keep shrimp in a planted tank and had to avoid any fertilizers with high copper content. 4 hours ago, garroyo130 said: Where abouts are you? Don't worry I exclusively fish my quarry Quarry, you say? I used to fish a gravel pit with my dad as a youngster and the fishing was AMAZING, especially for Indiana. If you're ever looking for a fishing buddy, hit me up! 😁 I've got 1 pedal kayak and 1 with a trolling motor, happy to bring both of them if you wanna troll around; I'd love to give quarry fishing again now that I (kinda) know what I'm doing. To answer your question, I'm around the Mueller area. Yourself? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
