    So far this winter I've have, white spot, flukes and now trichodina...

    FMG worked well under recommended temps. 9 c ( Do not use if you have crystals in the liquid)
    Supaverm took care of the flukes at 5.5 degrees, which were very active, not dormant at all.
    Now it's 8.5 c and Trichodina is very active.

    I think the parasites are operating outside the rules these days! Somebody should tell them!


    2660 Gallons. 4" Bottom Drain and Skimmer. Draco Solum 16 Drum. Anoxic Filtration. Air lift returns.

    it always seems to be rough the first year or so with a new pond.
    but at least you're on top of it

    i'm hoping to have an easy year parasite wise this year,
    though i'm ripping out and replacing out all my filters so might get a bit of a set back....

    Yeah Pp'd this morning. It was like a dream compared to old setup. Quick drain purge. Obviously pond is much cleaner with the drum on generally, plus no moving bed eating the PP.
    I just put a full dose in and made up my second full dose for top ups. I normally need two or three extra doses. I didn't need any today. Just sat on my hands and drank coffee.

    ... I released my hands to drink the coffee. That would have been tricky.

    waiting until we get some warmer dry weather,
    as i'll have everything offline including the ASHP, as the pipework has to come out right back to the drum.

    so will probably have to set up some temporary filters outside by the pond.
