Got serious about our pond we built 10 yrs ago. We have had poor clarity due to suspended clay particles. Fish had done well in spite. In the last 90 days added aeration and started a process off aluminum sulfate spraying to improve clarity. As well spraying to control cattails.

Let us know how it works. Mine is suspended sand due to some huge rains that we have recently gotten.
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Thanks for the welcome. Tough to find a good forum to learn more about improving my pond. Looks like this place has a lot of great info and ideas. Just starting to read some posts and getting some ideas for future.
