Why be proactive with water treatments?
A natural pond has a constant supply of fresh water flowing into it, such as from a stream or spring. Water also flows out of a natural pond, taking fish waste and other toxins with it. This isn’t true for most garden ponds as they are closed systems. Garden ponds also tend to be much smaller than natural ponds, so they do not offer the amount of water per fish that you find in nature. For these reasons, water treatments are necessary to keep water conditions safe for both fish and plant life and for clearer water.
Following specific steps each season allows you to create a backyard retreat you’ll enjoy all year long!

|Why it's important||Leaves, grass clippings, algae, uneaten fish food, fish waste, and decaying plants all contribute to build-up of sludge which is not only unsightly, but unhealthy, as it consumes oxygen and creates a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria.||Tap water must be treated to remove harmful chemicals, such as chlorines, chloramines, and heavy metals, all of which are toxic to fish.||When water temperatures are between 41-65 degrees Fahrenheit, slower fish metabolism needs easily digestible wheat germs food formula.||Ammonia, pH, nitrates and phosphates are invisible to the eye but can lead to unsightly conditions and be harmful to fish.||After a year or two, potted pond plants become root-bound and need to be divided and re-potted. Spring is the best time of year to do this.|
