In the article, pond supplies, we discussed what basic fish pond supplies are needed. In this article, we will be discussing the uses of some of the additional and fun fish pond supplies.

If your pond has aquatic animals in it, then you will need a filter, a pump, biological medium, bacteria, plants, and a skimmer. These are basic fish pond supplies that will keep your fish healthy and your pond water clean. But among these supplies, you can find unique and fun ways to display and enhance your pond. For example, if you must use a pump, use a waterfall pump. Water cascading over a rock sculpture adds so much natural beauty to a pond.

Lighting also enhances the beauty of your pond. With special submersible lights , you can enjoy your pond in the evenings and provide a subtle lighting effect to your garden or yard. Or you can use soft lighting on the outside of the pond, just around the edges. This provides a romantic and unique atmosphere for outdoor dinners.

There are other fish pond supplies that become necessary as time goes on, though you may not need it in the beginning. Some of these might be special autumn or winter fish food, deicers, pond nettings, and pond vacuums. To prepare your fish pond for winter, you will want to feed your fish a special food that is rich in nutrients. These nutrients will prepare the fish with extra immunities against the cold weather. A deicer is necessary to keep the water from freezing over during winter, providing air holes for the fish to breathe and keeping the water temperature at a safe level for the fish.

Pond netting might be necessary when it is time to do a thorough cleaning of the pond. You would transfer the fish to a small swimming pool or plastic bin and place the netting over the top to keep the fish from jumping out. Pond netting will also prevent predators from getting at the fish. A pond vacuum helps you to clean the toxic wastes from the pond walls and the filters to allow a healthier environment for your fish.

Other interesting and fun fish pond supplies are different kinds of plants or ceramic animals to add variety to your waterscape. You can add many different types of aquatic or regular plants to your pond to emphasize the natural beauty of the area.
