One of the most common questions we're asked is how does a Pond work? Won't it turn green? Your Pond is a self-contained ecosystem that depends on many factors working together to keep it healthy. Among them are:
• The Skimmer Unit, Circulation, The Waterfall Box, Boulders, Aquatic Plants, Fish, Gravel, Tiered Construction, Berm.
• In order to have a successful water gardening experience, you must think systematically and understand the critical role of each ingredient in Mother Nature's recipe.
• The fish nibble on the plant life (and everything else), including the algae.
• In turn, the fish produce waste that, along with other forms of natural debris, falls to the pond's bottom.
• Debris is broken down by the aerobic bacteria and the other microorganisms colonized on the rocks and gravel all over the pond bottom.
• Once broken down, these substances are absorbed as nutrition by the plants.
• The plants grow and are once again nibbled on by the fish ... 'round and 'round it goes, infinitely.
So, in a naturally balanced water garden, you have this never-ending aquatic circle of life where all parts complement the others and play critical roles in the pond's natural born harmony.
