I had a pond dug when we moved into acreage on the NSW South Coast.
I put in a few large Goldfish and several small ones, but was a bit
worried about the murkiness of the water and the health of the fish.
Had a lot to do, and after a few months got around to clearing the pond
water using Bentonite.
Within a couple of days there was a lovely clear, sparkling pond, and
lots of Goldfish.
Then, later,  looking out the window in horror, I saw three Kookas
gorging themselves!
 The answer maybe to keep your pond water murky !!
