It sounds like your pond has sludge

How to be sure

You have a huge amount of dirty, sludgey, waste building up in your pond. It clouds when disturbed and released nutrients that could produce algae problems

Step 1 – Treat your pond

  • Treat the entire pond using Sludge Buster or Clean Pond Pods.
  • Perform a partial water change, using Fresh Start, to help dilute the problem.
  • Follow any re-treatment advise on pack or on our dosage calculator page.

TIP: Use an ongoing preventative dose of Clean Pond Pods to maintain a clear, healthy pond once the sludge has gone. Brilliant Pond contains three active ingredients that eliminate sludge, blanketweed and reduce filter maintenance.

Step 2 – Support your fish

  • Dose with Pond Guardian Tonic Salt to help support the fish’s immune system
  • If your fish are gasping at the surface, increase oxygen levels by adding an air pump.

Blagdon water and algae treatments can safely be used with Blagdon fish medications.

Only use one fish medication at a time.
