can I jump in here also and ask what plants are the best for cleaning the water in a pond? mine is 1/2 acre and ive just finished removing a pile of pond weed from it and its not very clean. we have loads of frogs and newts living in and around it along with a family of moorhens and I would like to make it as clean as possible.


That's a POND, it looks more like a lake !
Very nice I must say

Any ideas where a man might get a few carp? It might be worth putting in a few to see how they get on.


There was a place in Wexford somewhere that sold them but I can't find the details now. If you google around. you might find a link.

Here's a UK link.

Remember it's GRASS carp you want not ordinary Carp.
