Do I need a filter for my pond or is a fountain/pump good enough?

14 years ago

Is a filter really necessary? I have a 1000 gallon pond with a fountain and pump for a 1200 gallon pond. Will this suffice, or do I need some sort of filter? What types of plants will help keep the pond clear as well? Any quick remedies for green water? I allowed the pond to sit for two weeks with no circulation and the water turned very green very suddenly! Thanks so much for your help!
