Three tips to maintain a healthy pond
A morning highlight is walking out to your pond, prepped with coffee and fish food, and being greeted by hungry and feisty fish faces popping out of the water, excited for breakfast. The morning fun can be disrupted when your favorites become barely visible in cloudy or even green water. The warm summer months tempt algae to take over. Algae can steal your fish’s oxygen while turning your pond green, which is dangerous as oxygen levels naturally decrease in warm water. As the weather warms, extra care is needed to maintain healthy and clear water.
Summer is here and that means sunshine, warm pools, and green…ponds? Yes, this is the time of year when many ponds go from a crystal clear oasis to something resembling a celebrity green juice. The combination of the warm weather and intense direct sunlight creates the perfect conditions for algae to take over, which means you might need some water treatments.
