What do you know about Complete Water Changes?
Are you thinking about doing a complete water change because your pond has too much muck and algae? Before doing that, you may want to consider what will happen to the good bacteria keeping your pond ecosystem balanced.
It is important that you do not completely change the pond water! Doing this will result in the loss of all your “good” bacteria and this has been known to make algae problems worse! Without the “good” bacteria in place, your pond is no longer a balanced ecosystem. You tend to see less algae in mature ponds because the good bacteria has been allowed to grow and multiply for years.
Try to avoid Complete Water Changes and your pond will become balanced, keeping your fish happy!
