Just found it my pond, it looks really quite pretty but unsure what it is.
Anyone know? :)

That looks like Hornwort, Ceratophyllum demersum. It grows literally like a weed, becoming invasive in many areas. It does well in cold water and outdoor ponds.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
