The natural balance of the reservoir is formed rather quickly. To support it, regularly remove the appearance of all the garbage that is applied by the wind, and fallen leaves. Keep it free of debris on the bottom of the pond, otherwise you'll start the process of decay. If possible, clean the bottom of the reservoir each fall.

With the heat beginning the water in the reservoir becomes a greenish color. This is caused by the multiplication in it of the simplest of the algae.

If the water began to thicken, and plants have not yet well developed, then use chemicals — algaecides. But they approach with caution, as they can harm plants and is not entirely safe for humans.
Well contributes to water purification and oxygenation of the pond fountain or stream. Therefore, if you do not lay these decorative items before construction of the pond, think about how you can build in the future.
If your pond ornamental fish to water purification approach more seriously. Use a special lamp with ultraviolet light, as well as complex systems of biofiltration.
