Are you a mind reader? Laughing

Having some problems with the new pond and have been thinking about a skimmer.

Also the balance isn't quite right yet - a bit green. It didn't help when I planted up around the pond and got soil in the water! Hopefully this will be sorted with a UV light when we get the electrics sorted
