You will find everything you need to help prevent algae at Smith Creek Fish Farm from Japanese Trapdoor Snails, algaecides, pond vacuums, and more. We have written a handy guide below on how to prevent algae build-up in your pond.
Install and run a submerged air diffused or floating surface pond aeration system 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help maintain your water and avoid the accumulation of nutrients that can cause excessive algae growth. Aerators enhance the amount of dispersed oxygen in the water, which promotes the growth of good aerobic microorganisms. This helpful bacteria helps to regulate and enhance water quality while also reducing algal blooms by breaking down organic debris and consuming excess nutrients.
Pond Nutrient Build-Up
The major purpose of an effective algae management strategy and farm pond algae control is to reduce the nutrients in the water that might promote undesired algae development.

Planting beneficial vegetation in and around the borders of your lake or pond can assist to maintain the bank, decrease erosion, and keep nutrients out of the water.
By utilizing naturally existing bacteria and enzymes that contribute to the preservation of healthy water habitats, biological augmentation may greatly enhance pond water quality. The addition of these naturally existing microorganisms to your ponds helps to promote natural populations, reducing the buildup of nutrients and organic sludge, and so removing the algae's principal food supply.
