Need some pond tips for June? We’ve got them. Summer has arrived and it is time to start changing some of the maintenance activities.
Having a Koi pond at your home is undoubtedly the quickest way to reduce stress and noise that you have to deal with on a regular basis. This peaceful and quiet place is essentially a man-made paradise. Apart from eliminating stress and tension from your mind, a Koi pond is a perfect way of adding beauty to your backyard or any outdoor space. However, it requires some effort to keep it in its healthiest and most attractive condition.
Need a few more pond tips. Look no further…
- Do not start feeding your pond fish until the pond water is at least 50°F.
- Add beneficial bacteria. Remember beneficial bacteria removes ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and organic debris such as dead leaves, uneaten fish food, fish waste etc., that cause water clarity problems.
- Maintain salt level between 2.5 – 3.0 ppt.
- Switch to higher protein food 2-4 times daily.
- Back flush filter media weekly.
- Minimum 10% weekly water change.
- Check chemical levels.
