Pond ecosystems
A pond ecosystem is a delicate balance of fish, plants and other animals. The wrong combination could leave you with dead fish and withering plants. An ecologically balanced environment includes clean, clear water and fit fish.

The way to achieve this starts with a good pump and filter. Regularly cleaning the surface of your pond of leaves and debris will also help keep your pond ecosystem happy. Other items that will help keep your ecosystem clean include a pond skimmer, pond rake, pond netting, and a pond pump filter.

A healthy pond ecosystem also includes a combination of submerged, bog, and floating plants. All three plants serve different vital components for your pond. For example, submerged plants help oxygenate while floating plants distill sunlight which is the source of food for algae, and too much algae can destroy an ecosystem.

When purchasing fish and animals like turtles, snails, etc. for your pond’s ecosystem, make sure to research what you are buying to ensure they are combatable with one another. You don’t want your fish to be eating one other.

The right balance of appropriate pond equipment and pond life will lead to a lasting pond ecosystem.
