How to Beat the Heat - Summer Pond Health

Now that summer has arrived, there are a few things to be monitor in order to keep your pond from becoming a hot, unhealthy mess.

Clean your pond

Plants will keep the pond temperature down and provide necessary shade for the fish. A good rule of thumb is to provide coverage of approximately 50% of the pond's surface. One thing you probably didnít know is that fish can get sunburned. So be mindful of inadequate coverage if your pondís shallow.

Clean your pond

Circulation should be constant. Adding an aerator will provide additional oxygen. Keep in mind that waterfalls, and even fountains play a huge part in the oxygenating the pond. Keep everything running 24/7.

Clean your pond

Donít overfeed your fish. Feed only once a day and only what they can consume in 5 minutes. If water temperatures reach 85 and above, discontinue feeding. Fish canít metabolize at temperatures that high.

Use these tips to help keep your pond healthy in the heat. The bottom line is - let your fish and plants do the talking. Theyíll tell you if somethingís wrong. Iím Joe from webbsonline.
