Another thing to be careful of is Tap water, full of Chlorine ,a no go with fish, so use a product that takes out the Chlorine.
Why will you be using the same type of pump for a bigger pond as you did on a smaller one and it only lasted a year??
How do you oxygenate the pond???
I think a visit to a garden centre with a fish dept, the staff are very helpful and will give you great advice.
The pond weed is not algae ,It is a plant that gives off Oxygen at night, also somewhere for fish to hide and breed in.
