Every single indoor or outdoor water structure and pond is sure to have bacteria except for those that have been specifically designed to be entirely free from these microbes. Killing these microbes with the help of strong chemical formulations such as sodium hypochlorite solution is indeed an effective remedy, but this may also affect good bacteria that are needed for the pond’s ecosystem. In any case, you must simply have to accept that pond bacteria are intrinsic.

This is similar with the human body, which also has some bad bacteria that can cause several different kinds of ailments. You must therefore realize that ignoring these harmful microorganisms in your pond could later lead to damaging effects. Introducing a substantial amount of good bacteria in your pond water is also very advantageous to your entire marine living organisms.

Good bacteria found in different bodies of water are called aerobic bacteria. These tiny creatures are responsible for decaying everything in the water such as tiny bits and pieces of fertilizer, rotten foods, fish wastes and putrid marine plants. When these waste materials are not decomposed due to lack of good bacteria in the pond water, other organisms like algae will then feed on these nutrients and propagate fast and easy to your water structure.

To counteract these possibilities, you will need to introduce more good bacteria to your pond water. You should learn that by simply limiting the amount of their food source, you are also being able to control their growth rate. A good example of these useful bacteria is the so-called sludge removers. These life forms feed on decaying materials in the water. Bacteria known as nitrifiers are another good example of useful microscopic life forms in the water because they aid in the natural cycle of nitrification.

You must remember that keeping the amount of good and bad bacteria in proportion is vital to avoid any harmful effect on the whole ecosystem of your pond. When damaging level of waste products is not broken down, it will still remain in the water. Later on, bad algae will feed on them and propagate fast with the help of these nutrients. The result of this in turn will be too little sunlight getting through to the water and low levels of oxygen. Without these nutrients, all aquatic plants and animals will soon perish.

Compared with bacteria, algae are actually a form of fungus. Bad bacteria and algae, on the other hand, are both harmful to underwater ecosystem. If you fail to eradicate these two large groups of bad organisms in your pond, there is a strong tendency for your marine animals to acquire water-borne diseases. Did you know that these diseases could also be transferred to humans once they come in contact with ponds having these harmful organisms?

To eradicate these unnecessary bacteria in your pond would be a little too difficult if the water is stationary. Introducing more air flow in the water will have a positive effect if you are into eradicating it. Adding an appropriate air pump to your pond is one of the effective ways to introduce more water flow. Another way to solve this kind of problem is by simply adding some natural nitrifying bacteria boost in the water. During application, do not forget to ascertain the correct quantity of chemical formulation.

You must do these measures regularly to keep the water of your pond free from this kind of bad bacteria. After all, maintaining such condition is advantageous for you and your pond in the long run. You could also simply vacuum the dirt or rake the decayed debris in the water to keep it clean. Another effective way to keep the water clean and fresh all the time is by putting a good filtering system into the pond. Taking into consideration the number of your marine animals and plants is another basic step to keep it free from bad pond bacteria.

There are good and bad Pond Bacteria. The good bacteria keep organic waste like fish waste and excess food. The bad bacteria produce bad odors and poor water quality.
 
 
Any pond or water structure could have bacteria except for those that are specially built to be free from these microorganisms. Killing these microbes with the help of strong chemical formulations such as sodium hypochlorite solution is indeed an effective remedy, but this may also affect good bacteria that are needed for the pond’s ecosystem. It only means that pond bacteria are an essential part of your underwater environment.

This is the same with humans wherein bad bacteria could cause various types of health problems like fever and sepsis. You must then realize that disregarding these bad microbes to your pond could eventually lead to serious problem. Just like humans, marine plants and animals can also benefit from adequate amount of good bacteria in the pond water.

These single-celled microscopic organisms found in bodies of water are called aerobes. Their responsibilities include the decomposition of decaying materials in the water such as remainders of fertilizer, decaying marine plants and animals. It is because if these materials are not broken down, there is a tendency for other organisms like algae to feed on them and produce unhealthier environment for the rest of the underwater ecosystem.

Introducing greater amount of useful bacteria to your pond water is one good way to solve this kind of problem. By controlling the amount of nutrients in which these pond algae feed upon, you are also being able to manage their growth. Probably one of the best examples of harmless microscopic organisms is sludge removers. These microscopic organisms also feed on waste products just like algae and bad bacteria. Another good example of these harmless bacteria is the natural nitrifying microorganisms, which main objective is to aid the nitrification cycle.

Always remember that the balance between good and bad bacteria must be maintained properly to prevent any serious problems that could damage the entire underwater ecosystem. Or else, harmful waste products will only stay in the water because it is not broken down. Eventually, algae will feed on them and proliferate in a very rapid rate. If this happens, only limited amount of UV light will penetrate into the water and there will also have less oxygen. Without these nutrients, all aquatic plants and animals will soon perish.

The so-called 'bad' algae are actually a form of fungus and not bacteria as such. Bad bacteria and algae, on the other hand, are both harmful to underwater ecosystem. Having these two groups of harmful organisms in your pond is too dangerous because they could cause water-borne diseases. Are you aware that people could also catch these ailments, which could manifest like allergic reactions such as nose irritations, sore throats and skin rashes?

If your pond water is stagnant, it would be a little too difficult to eradicate these bad bacteria. In this case, increasing the level of water flow in your pond could be very beneficial. You can for example install a pump or introduce water features such as waterfalls and fountains. Introducing natural nitrifying bacteria boost in the water is another way to solve this problem. Just be sure to use this chemical formulation appropriately.

In order to achieve bacteria-free pond water, you must do these measures regularly. In the end, you will notice that it is more advantageous to have bacteria-free pond water. You may also add some basic measures in keeping your pond clean such as removing it manually using a net. Adding a high-quality water filtration system is another way to keep the water clean and fresh all the time. Another good way to keep it away from harmful pond bacteria is by taking into account the number of your marine life.

There are good and bad Pond Bacteria. The good bacteria keep organic waste like fish waste and excess food. The bad bacteria produce bad odors and poor water quality.
 
 
Did you know that every pond in the world has bacteria unless it is made specially to be free from these microorganisms? While you can use some strong bactericidal solutions to kill these microbes, doing so may also affect good bacteria that are necessary to keep the balance in your pond’s ecosystem. You must realize that pond bacteria play a vital role in your underwater environment.

In our bodies we have the situation that 'bad' bacteria can cause all types of diseases such as infections and inflammation. You must therefore realize that ignoring these harmful microorganisms in your pond could later lead to damaging effects. Just like humans, marine plants and animals can also benefit from adequate amount of good bacteria in the pond water.

Aerobic bacteria is the term used to describe those useful microscopic life forms found in bodies of water. Their responsibilities include the decomposition of decaying materials in the water such as remainders of fertilizer, decaying marine plants and animals. Otherwise, accumulating waste materials in ponds or other water structures will then contribute to the rapid growth of algae bloom; thus helping them to create an unhealthy environment for everything that lives in the water.

To avoid these consequences, the best thing that you can do is to introduce more useful bacteria to your pond water. You should learn that by simply limiting the amount of their food source, you are also being able to control their growth rate. A good example of these useful bacteria is the so-called sludge removers. They feed on rotten stuff in the water. There are also other useful microorganisms known as nitrifying bacteria, which help in controlling the amount of ammonia in the water.

Always take into account that keeping a proportionate amount of good and bad bacteria is necessary to prevent any damaging effects to your underwater ecosystem. If dangerous level of waste materials is not broken down, relative amount of it will stay in the water. Eventually, algae will feed on them and proliferate in a very rapid rate. The result of this in turn will be too little sunlight getting through to the water and low levels of oxygen. With little nutrients, marine life would surely die eventually.

Algae refer to photosynthetic organisms that usually found in different bodies of water such as salt water, running water and even still water. Even so these bad algae could act the same way as harmful bacteria. They could cause dangerous level of water pollutants that could lead to infectious diseases to all of your aquatic plants and animals. In fact, even humans could develop serious ailments from these water-borne bacteria, manifesting in such a way like nose irritations, sore throats and skin rashes.

To completely get rid of these bad bacteria is rather difficult, especially if your pond's water is stagnant. Anything that keeps the water moving will have a beneficial effect. You can either choose between introducing added water features like fountain or waterfall to your pond, or you simply install some high-quality air pumps. It is also possible to buy good bacteria from a pet store. Ask for their advice about the correct quantity to add taking into account the volume of your pond.

Keeping the pond water free from bacteria is an on-going task. In the long run, you will realize that keeping the water free from rubbish is entirely beneficial. Keeping it clean could also be done manually by simply removing all the dirt, rotten leaves and fish waste using a net. Adding a high-quality water filtration system is another way to keep the water clean and fresh all the time. Another way to manage the level of pond bacteria in the water is by limiting the number of aquatic animals and plants in your pond.

There are good and bad Pond Bacteria. The good bacteria keep organic waste like fish waste and excess food. The bad bacteria produce bad odors and poor water quality.
