Easy way to have a crystal clear pond.

Recommended Posts

Now generally, getting rid of algae is a subject that we go into depth on.

But sometimes, we just want a clear pond AND we wanted it yesterday!

Enter the Serenity Green Water Destroyer block.

1) Break off the right amount.

2) Chuck it in.

3) Algae dies.

4) Pond water is clear.

Now, we are treating the symptom. It is worth looking into why the pond had an algae bloom. Knowing that lets you prevent it in future.

But there is no ignoring that these turn green ponds into clear ponds.

Serenity Algae pond blocks, they are like chocolate for ponds..... or aquariums.

Ummm... Thanks, I think :-)

I did the maths...

40,000 litres of Billabong / 800 litres per block for up to 14 days = 50 blocks

50 blocks @ $4.95 = $ 247.50

10% discount (Yay! thanx AoA!) = $ 225.75 every 2 weeks :-((

I'm fairly certain AoA wouldn't be very keen on me buying all their stock of this (and then some!!)

So, I'll stick with [MENTION=3726]grubby[/MENTION] on this one - green water is GOOD.

I don't speak for AoA, but I am sure they will not mind supplying you 225.7 dollars of blocks per fortnight until stocks run out, we wouldn't want you missing out on clear water, "Green water is good" is a common saying for people with green water, but we all know clear water is what greenies want.

Glad you did the maths! I certainly didn't.

Wikipedia says....

"Barley straw, in England, is placed in mesh bags and floated in fish ponds or water gardens to help reduce algal growth without harming pond plants and animals. Barley straw has not been approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use as a pesticide and its effectiveness as an algaecide in ponds has produced mixed results during university testing in the United States and England."

I dont know [MENTION=5372]Grover65k[/MENTION] i like to see my fish.

Starting to think you are telling porkies about your gpg lakes inhabitants.

S'OK, I just pretend I'm "whale-watching" and count them as they come up to surface :-))

PS [MENTION=2383]ageofaquariums[/MENTION] apologies for the thread hi-jack.

I do think it's an interesting product - just not in my league of solutions-to-a-problem :egrin:

Thats a lot of rotting organic matter to then deal with. Things happen way too fast with our warmer water.

Thanx Donny!

I'm planning on using a number of smaller hay bale net-bags holding just a kilo or two of straw placed where the pump water will aerate thru them.

LOL - I'd never drop a whole bale of hay in the Billabong !!

This is what stops me, even in a mesh net it will break down smaller than the mesh, fall out and block everything or settle as a couple of inch thick layer on the bottom.

I have to large sponge filters in a spa and that is giving enough aeration and water movement to stop algae and the spa is is full sun.

I'm also sorry for the hijack, i will try not to do it again but no promises lol.

Cheers mick
