Algae problems??

March 9, 2011

Many of you may be experiencing that slimy algae coming up in sheets from the bottom of the pond. No need to worry about spending money to get rid of this annoyance. This is actually a winter algae that will go away on its own in due time. It starts at the bottom of the pond and when the weather warms up, it floats to the surface and then turns brown and dies. There is one primary concern. This is the massive amount of decaying matter that can take away oxygen in the pond (so make sure to monitor those oxygen levels). Otherwise, this is one problem that will fix itself.
On a side note, those ponds with high activity (high populations) will not have this algae problem.
I hope everyone had a great mardiĀ gras holiday.

Best-
Richard
