    Why is my pond water milky?

    You could always vacillate or temporise instead. So you could spend a little extra time trying to decide between all of them :thumbsup:

    In need of some advice about a neglected pond

    Well, I just found a small brown newt while clearing some brambles. It was perfectly healthy and I moved it to a safer space near the pond where I won't accidentally cause it any harm.
