Pond treatment

7 comments


My pond is relatively new but the water turned bright green. I sought advice and was advised to try Tetra pond
Algorem Green Water treatment. You mix the correct dosage. in a watering can mixed with pond water, and then sprinkle the solution over the surface of the pond.
The photo shows how it brings the green to the surface so you can skim it off .You can re apply after three days if you need to.

My pond is nearly clear now.

Hi

I hope all the water doesnt fall out

A water lily would help stop the algae blocks the sunlight out , but all new ponds go through that , barley straw stuffed in a stocking helps as well just leave in the water.

I'm still stocking the pond and have a water lily waiting to go in along with some more plants. I can now see my fish!
