Outside of some sedge or rush grass poking here and there on the edges of the banks, I have had no pond vegetation whatsoever in the last 3 years or so... Well, before crayfish and soilfloc I had a nasty overtaking of eurasian milfoil probably came in with geese poop or maybe with a batch of water that had some live critters that was shipped to me. Sonar dosing once in fall and once in the next spring eradicated that.

Then soilfloc really made the bottom rock hard, impervious almost, can't hardly drive a stick or stake in anymore. That is a fairly effective barrier to volunteer seeds or pond plants.
Crayfish eating the plants?, maybe, never see them, can't catch them in a trap, so they actually may not be there in any numbers.

Goldfish, yep a few still left, down to about 30 or so from 'hundreds'

These are growing in the edge of the grass and in the shallow on only one end of the pond but seem to be spreading a little. They are individual green stems, turn white at the ground level, rooted in clusters. I browsed around but couldn't find a match. I tried TAMU tool, didn't help. I thought maybe pennywort family but not quite right. Maybe it isn't a pond plant but something from the lawn that doesn't mind growing partly underwater?

Anyone give me a family name and then I can google some more?

Thanks in advance
