We also have a wide selection of pond water test kits to make sure that you can create the best environment possible for your aquatic pond fish.

If you have a pond in full sun light without much shade or cover then you could be in danger of getting algae in your pond. Blanket Weed and Green Water are the most common pond algea and you will find that you will only ever have one or the other. Algae thrives on Nitrate and Phosphate as food which are common in a garden pond. Sunlight provides the catalyst to promote their growth. So to keep Blanket Weed or Green Water at bay in you will need to eleminate the algae food and this can be done with the right pond treatment.  

Blanket Weed & Green Water

A Blanket Weed problem can cause major problems in a pond, starving all the oxygen from the water, so it is best to keep on top of it. It is best before you do any type of Blanket Weed treatments to remove as much Blanket Weed from the pond first or it will die, sink to the bottom and rot, depleting even more oxygen from the pond. Treatments range from chemical treatments like Interpet pond balance and Blanket Weed buster to some natural products that contain Barley straw like the NT Labs Barley straw pellets, Goodbye Blanketweed and Gemini Barley straw extract.

Green water can be eliminated in several ways: by using chemicals, natural ingredients, Ultraviolet Clarifiers (or UVC) and by a good balance of pond plants in your pond. However plants alone will not be able to control Green Water if the pond is in full sun light.  So a mixuture of all of the treatments will help.   Popular treatments include award winning Pure Bomb from Evoultion Aqua or Natural barley straw. The best way is to use an Ultraviolet Clarifer like an Oase Vitronic or Hozelock Vorton UVC which works by using ultraviolet light to kill the green algae spores in the water and thus killing off the green water.

Fish Disease

If you have a problem with fish disease, have a look at Mill Race Garden Centre's selection of Fish Disease Treatment Products. We stock the Pond Doctor Anti Winter treatment which will give your fish a good boost over the dormant winter months. Pond Doctor, NT Labs and Interpet ranges also cover all major fish diseases like Whitespot, bacterial infections, fungus, finrot, velvet, flukes plus all other types of nasty parasites.

Water Conditioners

When you top up your pond make sure to add a de-chlorinator into the tap water, like Interpet Fresh Start. We also advise you to test your water on a weekly basis to ensure a healthy environment for your fish.  If the water condition are slightly out of the parameters, you can add some extra biological matter into your pond such as the award winning Pure Pond from Evoultion Aqua.
