There are many different variations of pond systems. From small garden ponds with a stream to accessible water areas – there are no limits to the design of ponds. A pond ecosystem ideally regulates itself: pollutants such as animal faeces, falling leaves and other plant and feed residues are broken down by microorganisms such as threadworms, ciliates and other bacteria. Plants and algae also help with this. However, if the ratio of fish stock and pond size is unbalanced, special pond accessories are required to maintain the ecological cycle. Then, for example, fish excretion accelerates the growth of the algae, which reduces the oxygen content of the water and reduces the water quality overall.
In our pond shop, you will find high-performance pond pumps and pond filters that circulate the pond water to stimulate the natural metabolism of the pond. The pump functions as a pond aerator: the water movement supplies the pond with new oxygen and pumps coarse pollutants to the filter. In addition to this mechanical cleaning, microorganisms ensure biological cleaning of the pond system. They settle on the filter material and convert ammonia and nitrite into nitrate, which can be absorbed by aquatic plants.
Smaller garden ponds require at least one internal filter, consisting of a combined pump and filter. The ecosystem of larger bodies of water and streams is adequately supported by complete pond filter systems. The pond pump and filter are used separately. Box filters become necessary when the pond is occupied by kois. They are designed for the large coloured carp and their feeding requirements. If the filter capacity is not sufficient, the pond equipment can be supplemented by a UV water clarifier, in which the microorganisms are then killed. The residues are then removed via the pond filter.
Which pond care products are suitable for regular cleaning?
Permanently installed pond equipment ensures a long-term balance of the ecosystem. Our pond care products also facilitate the removal of isolated impurities. For example, leaves and other foreign bodies in and on the water can be easily removed with a net. Skimmers also remove leaves and other dirt from the surface of the water. Depending on the design, they are either permanently installed in the pond or move freely over the water as floats.
However, if there is excessive algae formation, our range of high-performance care products support the growth of pollutant-depleting microorganisms and promote the pond’s self-cleaning ability. We also offer pond suction cleaners for intensive cleaning. To ensure a supply of oxygen to the ecosystem and your fish even in the cold season, anti-ice devices ensure that the surface of the water does not freeze at certain points, allowing biogases to escape and oxygen to be absorbed.
Which pond accessories are necessary for stylish pond design?
The right garden pond accessories can be used to ensure the welfare of pond inhabitants. The matching decorative accessories also create a high level of recreational value for its owner. Choose from a wide range of pond supplies and decorative products from our collection, which will visually enhance your pond and create a relaxing setting in your garden. With floating plant islands, you can add impressive accents to the water, for example. Mirrored decorative pyramids are also a real eye-catcher and also keep herons away. Fountain pumps enrich the pond with attractive water caustics and provide a relaxing sound with the rippling noise.
How do you feed fish and other pond inhabitants properly?
Natural plankton and insects found floating in the water already offer a good food for your fish with sufficiently sized ponds. However, to ensure a proper and adequate diet, you can also feed your koi, goldfish and the like yourself. This may be necessary especially in smaller garden ponds, because the natural feed supply may not be sufficient. Depending on the season, feeding should be up to twice a day. The right feed and the right dosage form depend essentially on the age of the fish and the water layer in which they live. We offer a large selection of species-appropriate and high-quality fish food, which is rich in vitamins and minerals, and also provides your pond inhabitants with the necessary fibre. In addition to the main feed, we also offer you any additional feed and feeding accessories.
