If your fish-children live in a pond, it is YOUR responsibility to keep their homes clean and looking fabulous. NOT only because a dirty pond is super gross, but also because it can rob the water of oxygen, as well as harbour germs, parasites and fungi that can cause your fish to become ill.
NOOOO thank you, best to keep those ponds clean né. That’s why ePETstore stocks a LARGE range of pond treatments to suit whatever need your pond has — be it to bust Algae to Ammonia, to kick start your pond’s new bio filter, remove parasites and fungi, clear up cloudy water and blanketweed, to treat foam and froth, whatever your pond’s needs — we stock it and you can buy it.
ePETstore has brands like (but limited to) Easy Life, Evolution Aqua and NT Labs that are loved by fish-parents and boast stunning reviews.
Here are some popular pond questions making the rounds:
There is no single answer as to how much of your pond water should be changed. Factors include the size of your pond, number of fish and plants, the effectiveness of your filtration system and time of year. Just keep in mind not to change too much of your pond water at once as that’s not great either. Hmm, tricky.
Using koi clay will also help reduce diseases and help control the build-up of organic waste, bacteria and pollutants, to enhance your koi’s skin quality, stimulate their appetite and curb bacterial infections. JUST REMEMBER before you use any medicines, please make sure you know the volume of your pond, as you don’t want to overdose or underdose the medicines for your Koi.
The most common bacterial infections found in pond fish are ulcers, fin rot, tail rot, mouth rot, dropsy and popeye. Mouth rot is often confused with a fungal disease due its white cotton wool like appearance.
The most common fungal infections found in fish are saprolegniasis, branchiomycosis, epizootic ulcerative syndrome (EUS) and ichthyophthiriasis; and these are easily recognisable on fish with their cotton wool-like formations.
