Asked April 30, 2014, 9:55 AM EDT

I'd like to know what combination of aquatic plants would be best to achieve the most efficient ecosystem in my region. I'm currently researching converting my detent pond in to a natural swimming pool and water garden. My goal is to clarify and provide my pond with the cleanest water possible.The pond covers approximately 1/4 acre with an average depth of 6'. Part shade in the early morning and late afternoon. Otherwise, full sun from 10am to 4pm. I have a few small cypress trees in a 6sf area that provide cover all day.
