When it comes to your Koi pond, your fish and their health is key. Without proper care to your pond, you risk the chance of losing them. Whether you currently have a Koi pond or are planning to own one in the future, there are a few essential care tips you’ll want to know:
Quality, not Quantity
You’ll also be helping your fish achieve better health.
Keep The Quantity Right
Your pond fish might be colorful and fun to look at, but that doesn’t mean you should overfill your pond. When it comes to filling your Koi pond, there is such a thing as too many fish. For your Koi to thrive, they need the room to grow and move. If there are too many koi in too small a space, extra waste will lead to algae, and your fish will start to die.
Don’t Forget About Filtration
Clean water is a must, and with the right filtration system and pond plants, this should be easy to achieve. A filtration system will remove debris helping fight against algae. This is the first step towards clean water.
Remove Dirt and Debris
A clean pond is not only aesthetically pleasing but also vital to your Koi’s health. Though your filtration system will do most of the work, you’ll still have to remove anything the filter didn’t get. With proper equipment, your pond maintenance will never be a hassle and is vital for your Koi’s lifespan.
