6. How to Clean Your Fish Pond.
You should have a 8" wide net with a handle long enough to reach all parts of your pond. Use the net to remove debris from the surface of the water and the bottom of your pond.

Part of the natural cycle of your pond will be for organic matter to decompose, dissolve into the water, and be removed when you change water. So changing water is a very important part of the process of cleaning your pond. Change 20% of the water in your pond twice a week.

 
 

7. How to Feed Fish in Ponds.
Feed only floating food that is specifically made to be eaten by fish in ponds. Food that sinks may cause problems. Start by giving your fish a small three finger pinch. After they've eaten all the floating particles, give them a little more.

Continue giving them small pinches and watching them eat. Avoid leaving uneaten food in your pond. Any food that is uneaten after 10 minutes should be removed with your net. Click here for more about feeding fish.

We have read advice elsewhere that all goldfish should be fed sinking food, because when they take food off the surface, they will swallow air bubbles that will cause problems. This is contrary to our experience.

I just watched my goldfish eat off the surface. After most mouthfuls of food, he burped a bubble or two of air out through his gill. The ancestors of this fish have been eating food off the surface of the water for a very long time. Of course they also ate off the bottom and at all levels of the water between the top and bottom too.

So don't worry about your goldfish swallowing air while eating. Feeding food that floats is a good practice. If your fish don't eat all of the food in 10 minutes, get a net and remove the uneaten food. Click here for more about how to feed fish.

 
 
If you have trouble with your pond, don't overreact and make too many changes too fast. This is a good way to turn a small problem into a much bigger problem. So if your fish don't look right, or show unusual behavior, or you have a fish or two die, don't tear your pond apart.

Just start making a 20% water change each day. You may want to add Aquarium Salt to your water and perhaps add Quick Cure. Click here to read about a Recommended Treatment that can be used in Ponds.
