Herkymomma Posted June 26, 2021 Share Posted June 26, 2021 We moved into a rental house that has an established pond with goldfish. Maybe 8-10 but I’m not sure bc there is so much algae in the water I can’t really see. I think there’s a filter but I need to get it up and running. I prefer not to dump a bunch of chemicals in the pond to fix it. I know it’s not extra food bc the house sat vacant for a month and the previous tenants said the fish lived off the bugs and such with no feeding. I do know our water is REALLY hard. (We live in Belgium so I don’t have the same options as if we were in the states.) I want to start by getting the filter running and adding more plants to help with water quality. Don’t have a test kit yet to give any water parameters. The pond is an odd oblong shape. Half of it is waist deep and the other half is knee deep. It’s probably 10 feet long and 5 feet wide…ish. (Picture with reference to my kiddos) My only fish experience is with a 15 gal tank my daughter had! Any helpful suggestions are welcome! (What type of plants, what else I can do to clear up the water, etc) 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
