    This is a very good book for those who already have a pond. It does not get into the design and construction of ponds, but concentrates on maintaining the pond you have. This is exactly what I was looking for. I did not need to design or construct a pond; however, I did need the knowledge to maintain an existing pond, and this book fit the bill perfectly.

    It covers:
    * Water quality – the nitrogen cycle and what tests you need to perform
    * Filtration – types of filters, filter media, cleaning filters
    * Algae and plants – types of plants and how to grow them, how to contain algae
    * Fish – the different types of fish suitable for a pond and how to diagnose problems
    * Pond cleaning – when and how to clean the pond
    * Seasonal maintenance. – fall and winter preparations

    Also this book is illustrated with many full color pictures so you can see clearly what the author is talking about.
