Maintaining a koi pond
To maintain an optimal habitat for koi, it is important to perform regular maintenance on the koi pond. In the fall, blown-in leaves should be removed to prevent pond acidification and algae problems. It is recommended to use a scoop net for this purpose. Emptying the entire pond to clean the bottom is not recommended, as this can affect bacterial metabolism and cause a lot of stress to the koi. Water tests or equipment such as pond pumps are unnecessary when the pond is set up correctly and the plant filter contains sufficient aquatic plants.
