    Keep it clean from leaves and other debris (you could use a net). Also, don’t over feed the fish. The fish food can cloud up the water if you over feed.

    get some bundles of small hay let it sit in pond take it out after a few days the hay will absorb any dirt or nasties

    You can add chemicals that will help keep it clean or you can buy or make something called a hydroclean that suctions crud off the bottom, more work but natural. Go to a pet store that sells fish and tanks or to a place that sells pond equipment. They can give you all the particulars, it’s pretty complicated to explain here. They are right about the extra food and debris it adds amonia to the water.

    It’s Cleaning Time…

    There are two terrific times to give your pond a good, thorough cleaning. One is in Spring and the other is in Fall after the leaves have already fallen. It’s not a task to be taken lightly. It’s wet. It’s dirty. The muck stinks and the bottom of the pond is slippery. Performing a major pond cleaning requires courage to start the ball rolling and a little muscle to get it done.

    You need a bio filter suitable for the size of your pond and possibly a UV filter to stop the water turning green. There are also chemical adatives you can put in the water the will kill the algea and increase the health of your fish.
