Bathtub Water Pond

I designed my own water pond. I had an old bathtub. The birds love it the water. It does not turn green. It's so relaxing to hear the waterfall.

I must ask why doesn't it turn green? What are you adding to the water to keep the green scum or algae from forming? I'm hoping that you know for sure that whatever it is will not harm the wild birds etc.

It looks like a nice project if I get all the right answers. Thank you.

Lovely and a great way of using an old bath( I planted mine with herbs). Have you rocks or something in there to help any small animals get out if they fall in?

Hi. I don't use anything. Yes, I have a driftwood rock on bottom so the animals get out. I clean it every week. Thanks, Sheila.
