Use pond bacteria as filters and pond starters

New filters, new water and freshly created ponds need several weeks to form sufficient bacterial cultures. Pond bacteria shorten this time considerably and improve the water values in the fish pond. Filters that are turned off in winter have to start anew every spring to build up these cultures of beneficial bacteria. Therefore pond owners with a high fish stock of Koi, goldfish and Co. let the filters operate in winter, mostly these ponds are heated or covered.Tip: If you take your filter out of operation in winter, place your filter media (sponges) on a string in the pond. The pond starter bacteria will no longer work, but will remain and the filter will be back in operation faster in spring.Note: The fish swim, to put it bluntly, in your own toilet. Provide for efficient biological filters to break down the toxic excrements of the fish.
