Jump to new posts Re: algae and weed help needed by Bill D. @ 11/19/17 07:21 PM

FWIW I only apply Cutrine when the algae is actively growing. Check the bag/jug and it should provide a recommended minimum application temp. IIRC it is 60 but I'm old and my memory is not what it used to be!

The only way to advance your mind is to challenge what you once knew. If someone wants to add stuff to an archive thread let one of us know so we can make it happen. The only reason they are mods only posts is we did not want them to be general dis

I have these outflow boxes on 2 of my ponds and in-line boxes on 2 of my wetlands. I keep the outflow boxes protected from UV and they have worked perfectly for many years. They are not cheap, but provide flexibility in adjusting water level. I al

I just finished another pond with this same design. It is a small 1/3 acre pond. It has a watershed around 3 acres. So two 4 inch pipes should be enough. I just finished it mid September. So here are some pictures of that install with a little descri

Tracy, It is very interesting how every pond is different. For whatever reason, my diffusers seem to have quite bit of "gunk" on them after one year.

Thanks John, I will definitely incorporate some of your ideas. The fish highway and additional piles are definite musts. Will also prop open tires more.
Evaluating and adjusting fish populations
To add to what bassmaster 61 said, I had an old pond over run with GSF. I turned it around by catching adult BG out of my main pond and putting them in the old pond. It took a couple years and now I can still catch some GSF but the BG by far dominate

There are fish in the intermittent stream that flows about 330 feet south of my ponds, even way up the stream on the side of a hill. They are mostly Gambusia and Ozark Minnow, but fish nonetheless. It normally dries to small potholes from August un
