Hi, I have a 3/4 acre pond that has a bad problem with coontail in it, I also have American pondweed along the edges, I really would like to get rid of the coon tail for good, what do you guys suggest I use? My pond is full of trophy perch, walleye, and stripers and a great supply of Golden shinners, fathead, and bluntnose minnows. I do not want to kill my fish ,I also have bottom aireation.

SPC I have used Harpoon and Komeen in the past and really liked them. They are copper based products so used at the labelled rates there are no restrictions. They are reasonably priced. If you were wanting to save the American pondered these chemicals may allow you to only kill the coontail. If you have hard water these chemicals won't affect the am pondwees much if you do have low water hardness you could try treating the coontail with the lowest labelled dose and avoid direct contact with the pondweeds. However, if you were looking to kill both tge am pondweeds and coontail I would use Aquathol K.
