Pond vs. Algae

Tuesday, August 05, 2014 @ 11:15:00 AM
This pond has a little bit too much bloom (algae). One can flush it out with some fresh water. I like to be able to see my hand when my arm is it the water up to my elbow. Do not change anything drastically (like a big change of water). Make sure to keep the aeration going. Any time you see the pond turn from green to brown, flush it a bit more and keep the aeration going. If the bloom dies it can strip the pond of oxygen. The bloom is critical to the health of the pond and the fish. Just be cautious of too much of a good thing.
