The Spring is a very important time for pond cleaning and booking a pond service. If you have had fish in the pond during the winter, you need to take care of things as soon as the pond is thawed. During the winter months your pond has had no filtration running  for quite a while and has built up a lot of bacteria. Leaves, pine needles and plant decomposition create very toxic gases if left unchecked, plus fish excreting waste through the vent and gills can lead to very harmful circumstances to your Goldfish or Koi. Upon spring start up your filter is not properly seeded with the necessary beneficial bacteria needed to break down the waste produced during the winter. We recommend using Microbe Lift PL Beneficial Bacteria Booster to kick start the filter in spring, this will greatly increase the survival rate of your fish. The fish will not need to feed until the water temperature reaches about 50 Fahrenheit or 10 Celsius, at this time a Wheat Germ based food is strongly recommended (Exact reverse of Fall, feeding wheat germ leading to winter months) The colder water temperatures have slowed their metabolism to a crawl, so they can not digest fast enough and if given too much at a time they have the potential to develop internal bacterial infections. We also like to add salt during the spring pond cleaning to help aid the slime coat (Primary Source Of Defence) of the fish plus fight off any lingering “bad” bacteria free floating in the water column and along the sides of the pond.
