WHAT TO DO ABOUT AN ALGAE PROBLEM
STOCK ISRAELI AND KOI FOR ALGAE CONTROL
Algae is or possibly will become a problem in the future in most ponds and lakes. It is for this reason that we recommend when stocking a new pond or lake to start with the fish and snails which will control algae.
If algae is already present we recommend that you stock enough algae eaters to control or eliminate your problem. There is no set amount to stock, it almost has to be done on an experimental basis according to how bad your problem is. There are a number of algae eaters offered in our catalog. The Israeli algae eaters and Japanese Koi are super fish for eating algae, the channel catfish is next in line, white suckers, fathead minnows, crayfish and all the snail family all feed on algae, and do an excellent job of controlling or eliminating algae.
