Aquatic Plants & the fish waste nutrients that feed them are Mother Nature’s true filters. Plants are great for adding character to a pond by providing color and texture, but from a filtration perspective, they’re second to none. Thriving from the excess nutrients provided by fish in a pond, and depriving algae of its food source, the aquatic plants in a water garden, given proper coverage, are critical for the overall health of the ecosystem.
In the pond/water features context, a pond without aquatic plants is…
- A pond without sufficient oxygen
- A pond without happy and healthy fish
- A pond without aerobic (good) bacteria
- A pond without the ability to break down waste products
- A pond without naturally crystal clear water
- A pond without the ability to inhibit algae growth, and
- A pond that most resembles a pot of green pea soup
We have HUNDREDS of
KOI & GOLDFISH to Choose From!
The truth is that any store can sell pond products. In fact, any store can "Sell" Goldfish, KOI, and other Pond Fish. However, it takes an exceptional amount of commitment and knowledge to successfully "Retail" Pond Fish. Every year we get several "Emergency" calls from panicked Fredericksburg, Stafford County, Virginia (VA) homeowners who start mysteriously losing fish. Most of the time the cause can be traced to a parasite outbreak that came from purchasing a new pond fish from a retail pond store that quite simply did not know how to "Retail" pond fish. Now that is not to say that every store that sells fish does not know how to. However, it is important to know who you are purchasing fish from and more importantly who they are purchasing their fish from.
