Although not visible to the eye, pond water parameters are one of the most important factors to stabilise in ponds, as they are so crucial to your pond, it’s important to understand what can cause them to vary.
Pond water parameters very rarely stay the same and can fluctuate throughout the day from different sources of activity. There are various properties in terms of water parameter levels which include Oxygen, pH, kH, Ammonia and Nitrate levels. An imbalance in the pH levels drastically affects fish and their body functions leading to diseases and even death. Therefore, it’s important to know the causes of changing levels, so we can try and stop them from having an effect on fishes’ quality of life.
