I have a small mini-pond in my yard that stays "muddy" year round. It is natural clay bottom and I assume that's why it has never cleared up. I don't have any catfish in the pond, but there are a few small goldfish left over from an old galvanized stock tank I drained and there are bluegill and minnows. I've reached out to a couple pond management companies about helping me clear it up and have been told each time that my pond isn't big enough to be worth the effort, so I would like to try to do something myself, but don't know how.

I'm reading through all the forum posts now for info, but if there are any glaring "gotchas" I should know about, please feel free to school me. I'll post my results here once I figure out what I'm doing. smile

Stay safe and be well!

Where are y'all sourcing these components to treat your pond? Alum, Gypsum, etc. Are you ordering online? are these carried at a typical feed store, Tractor Supply, etc?
