    Hi gizmo found this site
    Aphid damage makes the leaf look twisted and distorted. Hose them off into the water or take off the infected leaves. Water plants on the pond shelf don't tend to suffer from many pests or diseases but aphids may affect soft and succulent leaves like those of Alisma or Pontederia species.
