i have lots of plants, mostly water primrose, cattails, and sedges in
my inground, lined pond. The pond is 12 feet long, eight feet wide,
two feet deep, filtered. i still have to harvest filamentous algae
periodically or they become a mass over the surface and choking the
primroses. i have mosquitofish and two longears which i never feed.
