We had the gold fish in our tank last year. I think ours is a 200 gallon trough. The gold fish did keep the mosquitoes down, but didn't do much for the algea. I added fresh water every other day. I still had to dump it & clean it every once in a while. The tank gets a lot of debris (hay, dirt, leaves, & stuff) in it. I didn't do it this year, because I ended up cleaning the trough anyway.
I didn't notice changes in the horses when we added the fish or when we removed them.
So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
