Pond Supplies, Pumps, Kits and Decor
Welcome to Pond-O-Mania.com! Where
did the sumnmer go? As winter draws near, there are a few seasonal
care tips to keep in mind. Though pond life slows down during winter
time, it is still important to provide regular care for it. There
are a variety of things which can and should be done to encourage
a healthy and thriving ecosystem once spring returns.
Along with the special care tips necessary for the upcoming
season, the holidays are also worth mentioning. Now is the ideal time
to purchase pond-related gifts for any loved ones who care for their
own ponds. We offer an excellent selection of filters, pumps and more
for great prices.
Because algae growth will stop during the cold temperatures,
the filter and UV light of a pond may be disconnected. These things
are only necessary when fish are being fed. During winter however,
fish metabolism slows to the point that fish should not be fed at
all below 45°F. Between 45°F and 55°F, easily digested
food such as wheat germ should be used and the fish should only be
fed two or three times a week.
Plants should no longer be fertilized beginning around
six weeks before the first frost. Also, particular plants will need
particular care. It is best to research any species of pond plants
you own ahead of time (this is also a wise step for fish species,
of course). Hardier plants may simply be allowed to go dormant during
the cold season. Other plants may need to be brought indoors, however.
For some people, the slowing down of wintertime means
extra time for planning changes for the next year. Let us help you
get started on any future pond project. Pond-O-Mania offers a wide
range of pond supplies, from filters to decor and more. We also offer
a useful and informative learning center. All of this is available
at your fingertips within the convenience of your home.
Here is some info to help you get started:
Lighting - Pond lighting
does much more than make a pond visible at night. With the right lighting,
many interesting and beautiful effects can be achieved. A pond can
take on an entirely different sort of mood once the sun goes down.
Underwater lighting and floating solar lights are just a couple options
for creating the ambience you most desire. Underwater lighting achieves
amazing, gyrating shadows and bounds of light. Accent lighting can
be used to highlight certain features such as fountains or spitters
and cast their shadows across the garden or onto your home. Be creative
and have fun.
Fish Supplies – Our
store includes all the best fish supplies for your koi, goldfish or
other pond fish. Count on us to provide you with great deals on everything
from fish food to water clarifiers. While fish survive simply enough
in the wild, using the right products will keep them beautiful and
fit in an artificial pond.
Filters - Pond filters
are one of the basic needs for keeping your pond clean and healthy.
Explore our learning center to decide whether it is a biological or
mechanical filter that you need. Then explore our store to select
from a great variety of filters, including submersible types.
Of course, there are many more pond supplies available
beyond lighting, fish supplies and filters which are necessary to
create and maintain the perfect pond. If you are starting from scratch,
then you are going to need a pump, filter, liner and other items.
A great idea is to start out with a pond kit. Kits include all the
basic pond supplies required to build your own.
When it comes to personalizing your pond to suit your
specific designs, there are even more options from which to choose.
These include water treatment chemicals, fish food, plants and possibly
some decorative fountains. Unlike the ponds that Mother Nature creates,
man-made ponds require human maintenance to stay balanced and beautiful.
