well first off most fish do not get pregnate most pond fish are verities of gold fish and they do not get pregnate she may be filling with eggs if you have a male they may spawn at wich time the eggs will become fertalized if you don’t have a male well there wont be any babys and if she drops the eggs good chance the other fish will eat them anyway

Schweiss Family backyard waterfall and pond

15 Aug

What happens when you tell your 18 year old son he can build a pond in your backyard? Why this of course! This is the almost complete version just a little more work to do… there are two 7500 gph pumps(they draw about 17amps combined) with 2″ piping for each pumping water to the top which has about 17′ of head and the pipes are about 60′ in length… the bottom pond is anywhere from 5′ to 2′ deep in parts… this has been my summer project and I’m just about to finish it up!!

This spring we entirely tore up our pond, re-excavated the shape and size (making it larger and deeper, now to hold approx. 3500 Liters) as well as replacing the old liner with a new one, and replacing all the old sandstone rocks with new quartz sandstone type rocks. We deepened the stream and filled around all the edges with a washed riverstone gravel. the whole process took a couple days of work, with myself, my sister and my Dad. To see a bit of what the old pond looked like, see my older video: I can’t wait to let Squirtle swim free in the new pond… I think she’s going to love it. 😀 In a few days we’ll be able to return the pond goldfish to their rightful home.

Keep your Pond Clean with Pond Pumps

If you have a beautiful pond, then you need to be able to maintain it and if you have fish in it all the more reason to help them stay healthy and alive. Fish need a lot of clean water as well as oxygen buying one of the pond pumps would be a worthwhile investment. Before you gout and purchase one, make sure you familiarize yourself with all the pond supplies that are available in the market. Perhaps you would also require one of the pond filters to help you keep the water in the pond clean so that your fish thrive and multiply.

The pond pumps make sure that there is water movement in the pond and they help clean the water as well. Since the fish pond is quite different from a swimming pool using a swimming pool pump in a fish pond could be quite a waste. The flow rate is indirectly proportional to the quantity of head as more extra power is needed if you are to thrust the water up hill. Most manufacturers of pond pumps measure the maximum head they recommend for their pumps and provide you a chart which states the final rate at which the water flows at a particular feet of head pressure.

Pond filters are extremely important pond supplies if you want to have a pond which is successful.  They not only help in making the pond water even more clear but even better, they rid the pond water of nitrates, ammonia and organic wastes which could mean the death of your fish. Making sure that a good quality of water is maintained in the pond at all times is the job that pond filters will do for you helping your fish stay healthy.

The various kinds of pond pumps having varied capabilities will raise water through a certain length of pipe to varying heights. The only thing common between all these pumps is that they are all better at pushing water rather than pulling it. Pond pumps come in two categories; the external pumps and the submersible pumps. The submersible pumps are normally used for small ponds as they draw high energy and are not very efficient where flow rates are concerned which might be something like a thousand gallons an hour. Submersible pumps are often used to maintain the aesthetic beauty of the ponds keeping the pond pumps out of sight and with newer technology today, they are getting more powerful as well.

Pond filtration happens in two steps one being mechanical and the other biological. In the former, organic waste is ensnared and is required to be taken out. If not, it could lead to the build-up of dangerous bacteria which could have adverse effects on your fish. During the biological process, the harmful compounds like nitrates and ammonia are changed into some that are not harmful. When you are looking for one of the best pond filters make sure that is a good one and does not need regular maintenance. One should buy pond filters keeping in mind the size of the pond, the volume of water it contains and the amount of fish there is in it. The same holds good for the pond pumps as well as price should never be the deciding factor.

Keep your pond clean and your fish safe by using some of the best pond pumps and pond filters and a whole lot of pond kits available right here!
