    I haven't heard of crystal confetti,I'll have a look for it when I buy the plants.I sent an email asking how many they would recommend for my size of pond.

    Hi, I've noticed some of the plants in my pond, particularly the floating oxygenating weed that I bought, is being colonised by what I presume is blanket weed, a green fuzz that envelopes everything...

    Will a pump help move water around and stop this stuff form spreading?
    He-Pep!

    I got a solar oxygen ator from Powerbee and it's excellent,would recommend.The man I spoke to on the website was extremely helpful and gave some good advice.Our pond is looking more clean and alive with many more insects on or near the water.Soon I'll get some more pond plants and oxygenating plants .I was reading one of the other threads about pond netting trapping other creatures.I need to put something over in the autumn to catch the leaves but will use something different.

    I have tried the small solar pumps via Amazon, usually retail for approx 25. Square solar panel with spike, pump and air stones. Both kits failed within 8 months. Never bothered to chase the retailer on warranty as the price was insignificant.

    Just ordered a PowerBee. Hopefully more robust.

    Thanks for the recommendation 'pwlynch'.
