When you want to improve the quality of your pond water, there are a few ways to go about it. One of the most efficient methods to get clean, clear, and healthy ponds and water gardens is with pond bacteria. These beneficial bacteria act as a mini water treatment facility for your pond. Here's what you need to know about the beneficial pond bacteria that help create healthy water conditions in ponds.
Types of Bacteria That Are Beneficial for Ponds
There are aerobic bacteria and anaerobic bacteria that help create a healthy pond. Aerobic bacteria use oxygen to break down organic matter. They do this quickly. Anaerobic bacteria slowly breaks down organic matter. Both types are safe for fish. The aerobic type uses oxygen to break down the waste and other organic matter in fish ponds. The anaerobic bacteria do this more slowly. Both types of bacteria promote healthy water conditions.
How Beneficial Bacteria Help Maintain Your Pond
Beneficial bacteria provide a solution for phosphate issues. They convert it from a soluble form that causes problematic algae blooms into an insoluble form. This reduces the growth of nuisance algae and allows good algae to thrive. Both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria turn nitrogen from fish waste and fertilizers into nitrogen gas. The nitrogen gas is released from the water into the atmosphere.
Adding beneficial bacteria to your pond reduces the amount of sludge at the bottom of the water. It also increases the depth of your pond, so the fish have more room to swim. The bacteria themselves are a food source for zooplankton and benthos. In turn, fish eat those microorganisms. Adding both types to your fish pond is a good idea. You'll gain the benefits of healthier and clearer water, fewer odors, and a thriving water ecosystem.
