When Warm Weather Arrives Watch Out For Oxygen Problems
With the warm weather we have all been having you may need to make sure your fish enjoy it as much as you do. As temperatures start to increase, the ecology of a pond will change. Increased temperatures will increase the activity of your fish and hence the consumption of Oxygen, whilst at the same time the rise in water temperature reduces it’s ability to carry oxygen, these factors in severe cases can be fatal to your fish.
For plants, fish, amphibians, wildlife and even many forms of bacterial, an environment which is rich in oxygen is critical. Although oxygen is present in water and the air around us, ensuring a sufficient quantity of oxygen within a pond is not something that should be left to chance.

These high quality Fish Spawning Brushes from Black Knight will leave you amazed at how simple collecting your fish eggs can be. As the fish breeding season is weather and temperature dependent spawning can occur anytime between April and July. The female will want to lay her eggs on plants and in ponds without plants this can be a problem. It is vital that the female releases the eggs or they can become "Egg bound" which can kill be fatal, so introducing a Spawning Brush whether you want to keep the eggs or not is a good idea. By placing the brushes just below the water level, one above the other, at the edge of the pond, your fish will be encouraged to spawn.
Spawning takes several hours and usually happens in the early hours of the morning, during spawning the eggs will stick to the brushes. The adults will quickly eat the eggs so if you want to keep the eggs remove the brushes from the main pond once Spawning has finished.
The purpose made spawning brushes are made from a soft material that won't harm your fish and are not the same material as filter brushes
