Pond Plants 101: How to Plant Your Pond

advice | | 194 views

As a disclaimer, we are located in Zone 6, so some of the following information might not apply to everyone. These are aquatic plants we like planting in our ponds and on our installations.



Pot or No Pot?

If you have a gravel bottom pond, plant your aquatic plants directly in the gravel. Take the plant out of the pot, rinse off any soil, and plant directly in the gravel. Use large boulders to stabilize taller plants while preventing koi from pulling them out.

If you have a liner/preform pond, keep...

Pond Foam: What does it mean?

advice | | 149 views

There are a few reasons a pond might become foamy. Although often harmless, it is important to monitor any build up of foam on the surface of your pond as it can require immediate maintenance for ponds with fish.



Fish Breeding

Are your fish more active than normal? Are your smaller fish chasing around your larger fish? Does your pond smell...fishy? If that's the case, your fish are most likely spawning. This usually happens from May to July. When spawning, fish expel gases (ie ammonia) which creates foam on...

Should I Install a UV Filter in My Pond?

advice | | 100 views

If you have a proper filtration system, adequate aeration, and healthy plant material, you shouldn’t need a UV filter. You should generally be able to keep your pond water clear without added equipment (ie UVs, Iongens, Dosing Systems, Chemicals). That said, some ponds thrive using UV filtration.



Clearing Green Water

A UV filter can help in clearing green water. Small single-celled algae will pass through the media in your biological filter. However, when this single-celled algae passes through a UV, these cells...

Tips and Tricks for a Happy Pond

advice | | 31 views

- The less you clean your filters (unless you have a canister filter) the better.

- Only clean Filter / Bio Media once a year, at the beginning of the year.

- Get your pond up and running in April or May. This way, your pond ecosystem will have a chance to get established before the weather gets too hot.

- It is common to get an algae bloom a week or two after a pond cleaning. This is because your pond has not had enough time to build up a strong colony of Beneficial Bacteria.
