Feeding & stocking Pond Fish

The fish which you keep in your Columbia SC water garden are an important part of a well-balanced pond. Keeping healthy fish in your pond is relatively straightforward, if you pay attention to proper nutrition and water quality. Water quality is affected by stocking level, feeding and addition of new fish. The stocking level is dependent upon your filtration and pond size. A general rule for success is to stock your pond with approximately 3 to 4 inches of fish for every square foot of pond surface area in a filtered pond. Too many fish will result in poor water quality and low oxygen levels. Waste materials excreted into your pond by your fish, frogs and various other animals, along with decaying plant matter, can create a build-up of toxic substances in your pond. A biological filter will assist in removing many of these toxic substances. The pond fish you keep are dependent upon you to provide a nutritionally balanced diet. A proper diet will provide your fish with the correct water conditions and nutrition for healthy growth and activity. In a natural setting, pond fish have a varied diet, based upon the season. The seasons are determined by temperature and so is the type of food your fish should receive. In cooler temperatures, when water temperatures are between 42 degrees F (5.5 degrees C) and 70 degrees F (21.1 degrees C), fish require a high carbohydrate/reduced protein diet.

Routine Maintenance

A Columbia SC water garden is generally installed for the pleasure of your family and friends. However, certain routine maintenance needs to be done. The amount of maintenance certainly depends upon the time of year and the water temperature. As the water temperature increases, so does the activity within your pond. If you have done routine cleaning and prepared your pond properly, these simple steps will allow you to get the most enjoyment out of your water garden. Even when your pond is perfectly balanced, routine maintenance procedures will need to be done to keep the balance intact. You are an integral part to the proper balance of your aquatic oasis.

All garden ponds accumulate organic matter from the time they are first filled with water. Organic matter naturally increases from dead plants, algae, and insects, as well as uneaten fish food and waste from all of your pond creatures. This organic build-up slowly decays, creating toxic hydrogen sulfide, ammonia and nitrite. This decay removes oxygen from your water and lowers your pH levels. It also provides an excellent breeding ground for many fish diseases and parasites. You will need to check your filter routinely to make sure that it is running at peak efficiency. First, you must check your Filter Pads and make sure you are obtaining maximum water filtration. Remember to change pads frequently while clearing an algae bloom. Every four weeks you will need to replace your Filter Carbon and Phosphate Remover to obtain proper results.

Once every three to four weeks during the pond season, you should make a 15% to 25% water change. The water can accumulate a large amount of dissolved organics and natural acidifiers that reduce water quality and disrupt the pond's natural balance. Performing a water change will reduce the build-up of these pollutants and various others. Remember, always treat your tap water with Chlorine Neutralizer whenever adding water to your pond. You will also need to replace electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfate, calcium and chloride, to maintain proper fish health. Pond Salt provides all the essential electrolytes fish need to survive.

A proper maintenance program will keep your pond in top shape and allow you to have countless hours of enjoyment and satisfaction. Your plants and fish will reach their maximum potential and provide you with a show-piece for all to enjoy.
