Water Temperature Below 50°F:
Once water temperatures drop below 50°F, you can start adding Aquascape Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria to your pond. This helps ease your system into the season, promoting optimal water quality.
Beneficial bacteria living in the biological filter and throughout the rocks and gravel in the pond are a key component to achieving crystal clear water and reducing pond maintenance. The bacteria, similar to aquatic plants, consume excess nutrients but are also capable of breaking down organic debris. It is important to the pond’s ecosystem for these maintenance microbes to become established as early in the spring as possible.
