Pink Lake ...

Pink lake is Meromictic ... meaning the layers of water don't mix. The deeper layers of water don't receive oxygen and therefore can't sustain much life (with a few exceptions).

It's not Pink Lake because of it's colour ... it's named after some Irish settlers who cleared the area for a farm in 1826 (the Pinks?)
