Thanks ladies. The green water has not harmed them but I do not like it because I cannot see them. I have a device that should help clear it. Slowly is better so I don't ruin water quality. It would be nice to see my fish again.

Yeah it doesn't look the best but the fish thrive in it. A UV sterilizer with the proper dwell time is a good choice for clearing it up without chemicals, if you haven't looked into one already that's where I'd recommend starting :)

Yes I went to the Atlanta Koi Auction and they directed me towards the right size for my pond and I ordered one already. It's on the way. It would be nice to see my fish again. I would leave it this way before I tried any chemicals. There's no point in risking my fishies. 

Citrine and Secret here seem to like it too. It gives all my white fish a lovely yellowy hue to them. Well Citrine already had yellow but still, they seem to like it. Me? Not so much!

I'm trying to deal with the green water issue. Sucks that I can't see my fish. My DIY filter that wasn't very good to begin with totally broke today (there was a CLUMSY incident) and will not hold water anymore so that set me back a million different ways.

I made a temporary setup but it has a minor leak and I have to start back from square one. The media was all totally covered with mud and everything was a total loss as far as BB is concerned. Ah well it wasn't doing much anyway since I still have all this green water. 

This is all kinda new to me so bear with me lol. Citrine and crew are doing fine for now though. I haven't weighed him but he is beginning to grow now too. I'm very happy with him. Super compact body shapes and cute cheeks? What else does one need?

Everyone swears he's like the #1 candidate for swimming upside down. Gosh I hope not. He hasn't had any issues as of yet.
