High density fish stocks produce a large amount of waste and ammonia through their excrement and gills. Its important to keep the ammonia levels to a minimum. Fish also use oxygen from the water in order to breath, the more fish you have, the more oxygen used from the pond, and more ammonia produced. Decomposing plant matter also uses valuable oxygen from the water, and, produces ammonia when breaking down. So, its important to manage aquatic plants appropriately to stop a build up of toxic silt on the ponds substrate, and algae blooms that deplete the ponds oxygen levels, note, fish will be close to the surface and gasping for air.
The process of matter decaying and silt build up can change the chemical balance of your pond, from PH acidification to complete depletion of dissolved oxygen and leathel levels of ammonia and nitrates. All can result in the loss of fish and other pond life.
The most common sign to watch out for when your pond is in need of a clean, is when the clarity of your water starts to become murky in colour (turbid). If you leave the water like this, algae will start to grow, turning the water pea soup green in bad algae blooms. This is highly dangerous for your fish. If your fish are exposed to prolonged amounts of time in this environment, they will display swollen eyes or bellies and bent spines, this can be Known as dropsy or pop eye. Its caused by the fishes ability to osmo regulate water and salt within the body, causing the fish to retain excess fluid in the body, making them swell. Bad skin or fungal growth are another sign of poor water quality. Fungal infections such as sapraligina can occur, also known as cotton wool disease. this is fluffy looking white growth on your fish, it irritates the skin and eyes and can also clog the gills causing the fish to asphyxiate.
