It depends on if you wish to keep your goldfish alive. The crayfish
(crawdads ) will eat your goldfish.

Even after they are well fed, crayfish will soon take to snipping off
your lily leaves!

I've been told the best scavengers to use are clams, snails, and tadpoles. All
of which eat algae, decaying vegetation and other less desirable thingies. I
haven't got my pond finished yet so I'm still investigating myself.

The drawbacks I've heard are:
Dead clams will foul the water
Snails may eat fish eggs
The tadpoles have to be replaced every two years. (They turn into frogs.)

I'd be interested in hearing someone's success/distress stories.

Hi..All you need in a pond is FISH..Koi and Goldfish are excellent
scavengers..adding additional creatures do nothing but add extra chance
for disease and parasites..Mike

Well, personally, I think a pond without a dog in it (at least
occasionally) is a waste.

Right, RosieDawg?

But they come back home with the girlfriend. They have wild noisy parties all
night long and do scandalous things in the pond.
Then they take off, all hungover, and leave you to raise their poor abandoned
babies.

And a pond without a dog in it is...... pond owner who is calm, relaxed and not
manic. Never here so we won't worry about that.
