Whether you’re a new or experienced pond owner you will face a common and often frustrating challenge with algae growth. Don’t be alarmed. There are several ways you can eliminate and even prevent algae growth in your pond.
The most common way to remove algae is by using an algaecide water treatment. With proper use, the Beckett™ Algaecure Algaecide is an effective method for removing algae and is safe for fish and plants. There are a few important steps that you must do before, during, and after applying the algaecide to your pond to maintain an adequate level of oxygen for your fish. If not followed carefully the fish can suffocate. The reason is that once the algae die off it’s no longer giving off oxygen to the fish. Following these steps will ensure your fish are unharmed during the treatment:
