This is my pretty pond. I love watching my koi children! But.............................cleaning it is another story. Apparently algea likes to grow when it's hot. AND, since it has been record breaking month of heat this July....I've been busy. We have went through a pump already, and EVERY night I have to scoop off the algea blanket that forms every day. I obviously had/have no idea what I was getting into when I bought a house with this. I keep waiting for it to be too hot and the fish to die (so I can shock it and put more work into it next spring........bad Mom, bad Mom), but instead they are multiplying like rabbits!
How pretty are these?!?
