Well i was wondering... my pond "sides" and plants have algae on them... so i'm thinking, in getting algae eaters (fishs)... or something... what do you think about it or advice me to buy !?.. something that eats algae and is the most efficient!
Unfortuntly by dying the water blue the fisheries will not get any algae meaning no plankton/zooplankton meaning no daphina meaning a huge cut down of daphina and natural food. For ponds its alright but for fisheries its almost stupid.
thanks for all the replys. but lucky me i live in a hot place, Madeira Island, that belongs to Portugal dont' know if you know where this is. but this year the lowest temp, that i saw in my house thermometer was 12ºC, so i guess it's mutch more warmer than UK. maybe i can have some algae eater species in my lake !?
hey my pond is about, 4m x 2.5m, im doing some remodelations on it cause i have for 7 years now and water is very clear, but still some algae on the "walls" the algae are... well not long.
now i got to change my pond cause i had a rigid pond, but i don't know how did it broke a little. and the water is going out and it dosen't look nice in the garden a pond with water 10cm below the usual...
so i ordered the pond liner and the overlay, cause i'm building a new pond. now with pond liner. so i'm investigating some algae eaters to put in the new pond, they will have plenty of algae in the plants to eat in the begining :p
Algae eaters in the aquarium are fine, but in the pond they seem to disappear and really do not do much to limit the algae growth. Keep in mind your climate and requirements for keeping fish in cold weather.
