How long did it take to fill? Are you going to get that waterfall working?

It took a little over an hour i wanna say , and yea the skimmer is hooked directly to the waterfall ,BUT were waiting on a pump , which we SHOULD have today , if not the one that was in it is $70 brand new which isnt too bad, we just dont have it at the moment xD so hopefully we get the one today lol ..

Eh been a while since i updated here lmao , i found my iphone SO i could take pics , not much done , we still havent gotten the pump we need lmao . my bf is lazzzyyy , but we rearranged the rocks (me and my awesome neighbor) so thet theyre straight and non climbable for little turtles , speaking of little turtles , my wittle guy is in the pond and has been in there for about a week and he loooves it !!! We plan on using chicken wire on the back side to turtle proof , and we have bricks to put on the front side , and for the back im removing ALL that small white rock and laying mulch and painting some car tired to use as planters , cause when previous owners built the pond , they used lava rock as fill and theres alot so i cant plant flowers -.- so were just gunna get as much of the white rock out as possible and just lay landscaping paper over whats left (im lazy i know :lol: :lol: ) And use tires as planters , itll be MIUCH easier to take care of anyways lol we got a ways to go but shell get there !!!

Anyone know a cure for alge ? Waters Crystal clean but the bottoms coated in algeeeee

Another angle , you can see its clear :D and you can see my lily pad flower on the left :D and you can see the way the rocks are placed on the sides to prevent escape lamo (we do have chicken wire to put up)

Wow, that looks pretty nice! I suppose you can add a UV sterilizer to the filter, but it won't take care of the existing stuff growing. Maybe you can add an algae eater or two.

I have an alge eater at my mom's . like i said waters clear the alge just settled on the bottom after the bloom . so maybe its cycled and if i add a few alge eaters itll get rid of it . someone said snails too . but yes its come sooooooo ffarrr !!!!

Once it's cleaned up, a sterilizer should take care of any reoccurrence.
