PRE AUTUMN POND CHECKLIST

With fall around the corner, it’s time to start preparing your pond
and fish for the Autumn weather.

Your pre fall checklist should include:

1. POND NETS/COVERS
Protecting your pond from falling leaves will reduce sludge build up
from decaying matter. It’s good medicine for your pond, because
excess debris starves oxygen levels which already decreases in colder
weather. Any extra oxygen depletion creates an unhealthy environment
leaving fish vulnerable to parasites and bacterial diseases.

2. KOIZYME
This biological formula of naturally “good” bacteria, enzymes, and
micro nutrients protect fish from pathogens before they have a chance
to colonize. It works by competing for the same nutrients the
pathogens feed on. In short, the pathogens have nothing to consume
and consequently can’t colonize. For maximum effectiveness, it’s best
to use this product in the Spring and Fall.

3. WHEAT GERM KOI & GOLDFISH FOOD
Start transitioning your fish from their regular food to a cold
weather (wheat germ based) food. Mix a 1 to 4 part ratio, gradually
increasing to a complete wheat germ based food. Low in protein, wheat
germ Koi & Goldfish food is easily digested, which is essential for
their health as they go into semi hibernation.
