How do you take care of a pond?

We have a small one, really more like a 1,000 Sq. Ft. Puddle. Is there anything I need to know about it? I was thinking about getting some of those mosquito torpedos, do they work? It's healthy, the horses use it, not spring fed but stays pretty good with rain. We are planning on enlarging it in the future.

Tips?

Buy cheap goldfish, they'll keep it clean and eat the algae.

Careful with the goldfish they multiply. We had a 7,000 gallon man made pond for two turtles we rescued. My son purchased what he thought were koi instead they were 5 comets (goldfish). By the next summer we had over 290 fish in the pond. We got a bunch of people to take a bunch of fish and closed the pond by that time it was 7,000 gallon of pee soup. We even had pumps/filters/waterfall.
