Water Garden Algae

Page 4

After I had all the rocks in place, I filled the water the rest of the way and turned the pump back on. I added a water conditioner to remove the chlorine from the tap water and then let the pump run for another hour or two before putting the four tadpoles back into the garden. Last weekend we finally made it back to the garden store and got a plant for each of the three shelves, including a floating water hyacinth.

The plants should reduce the amount of sunlight that hits the water, which will help control the algae, but I'm mainly concerned that the furnace filters catch whatever is floating in the water and allow the pump to run for the rest of the summer without further problems.

I think I'll go get a half-dozen small goldfish this weekend and then I'll be finished and can sit on the deck and just enjoy a beer while I watch my fish.
