What Is Best Koi Pond Filtration System?
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Koi Pond | Evolution Aqua
Koi ponds and koi keeping are gaining popularity in South Africa. There are many different types of ponds, but the filtration system will always be vital to the health of the fish. If you are unsure where to start when it comes to understanding a koi pond filtration system, this article is meant to give you a better understanding.    Koi produce waste that could be classified as both chemical and physical so it only makes sense that your pond will need to have the ability to handle both. The two main types of filtration are biological and mechanical.  Biological filtration encourages the growth of aerobic (nitrifying) bacterial cultures that will help break down the chemical components of fish waste. Mechanical filtration is employed to handle the physical solid pieces of waste such as faecal matter, dead leaves, dead insects, etc. There are special equipment you need to have present in your pond to ensure the health of your Koi.

EA Launches Tempest Filter For Ponds
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Koi Pond | Evolution Aqua
Award winning aquatics company Evolution Aqua have launched a new, innovative polisher for ponds, the Tempest. The Tempest filter uses Evolution Aqua’s K+Media to deliver crystal clear, healthy water. Designed to be used in conjunction with any filtration system, the Tempest offers additional mechanical and biological filtration. The Tempest filter can also be used on quarantine systems or as a standalone filter on smaller ponds up to 5,000 Litres.   The Tempest filter is easy to install and is simple and quick to clean, by way of a unique, patent pending air syphon design. During the cleaning process, air is drawn into the filter as it empties which causes the water to agitate, effectively cleaning the K+Media. Using Evolution Aqua’s K+Media as the filter media, particles down to one micron can be filtered. Not only that, K+Media is the result of extensive research and development, moulded with minerals for faster maturation times. Evolution Aqua filter me.. [More] EA_Tempest.jpg

How To Identify Diseased Pond Fish
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : NT Labs | Koi Pond
Keeping fish should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience and knowing what signs to look out for is key for healthy and happy pets. Fish are less obvious than other animals when they are unwell and often subtle changes in their behaviour can signal something is wrong. A lot of fish diseases are difficult to see without close inspection but most conditions and diseases bring about a change in behaviour.   What is normal fish behaviour? What to look out for: - A happy, healthy fish is usually one who swims at a normal pace, is alert to its surroundings and reacts quickly when food is introduced. Fish who rest listlessly, perhaps on their sides, fins clamped together and do not respond to food are obvious clues something is not right. Feeding time is therefore a great time to observe any abnormal behaviour. What is not normal fish behaviour? Erratic behaviours, such as sudden bursts of stop/start swimming, jumping and ‘flashing’ - where fish scr.. [More] ntlabs-koi76.jpg

There is plenty of preparation needed for ponds to thrive during the summer months. A good maintenance routine will help prevent water quality issues and health related problems in your fish.   Summer maintenance Water quality issues after winter After a long winter with not much activity, the pond may begin to spring to life without much interference.

Sludge at the bottom of the pond can reduce pH to dangerous levels and provide a breeding ground for disease-causing organisms to hide.
