With warm March temps across the country, we are getting lots of questions on String Algae. Just took a walk out to our water gardens and yup, we have it too. Here’s a few things you can do:
1. Are you fish moving around? Or are they still sitting around the bottom of the pond. If your water temps are into the 40s and your fish are moving, you can remove the string algae by hand. If you have the 3-in-1 Tool, there is algae brush attachment that’s perfect for removing the string algae.
2. If your water temps are consistently in the 50s and your fish are active, you can use AlgaeOff to kill the string algae. Don’t forget, you still need to remove the dead algae from the pond to prevent muck buildup.
3. As long as there’s no ice left, go ahead and throw a dose of Seasonal Defense or Barley Extract into your pond. These products can help keep nutrient levels down in your pond.
For now, we are not removing the string algae at The Pond Guy. Our koi are still pretty slow moving so we do not want to stress them. With warmer temps this week, that could change! ... See MoreSee Less

Another quick reminder, for all our Ponders in the SE Michigan area (or anyone with the impending winter storm), your pond netting should be taken down. The expected ice (or snow) can weigh the netting down into the pond and could cause your fish to get tangled in the netting. ... See MoreSee Less

Here's a video shared by the Michigan DNR of a baby snapping turtle. ... See MoreSee Less
Did you know that a common snapping turtle could reach upwards of 13 inches long and weigh nearly 23 pounds - with some getting even bigger? Here's some video we captured this weekend of one that's not NEARLY as big (actually, quite tiny and born this year). Snappers don't reproduce until they are 11 to 16 years of age. Find out more about the common snapping turtle at 1.usa.gov/nFgX3h. #MiTurtles #MiDNR

The previous record for SMB in Michigan was set in 1906! What a great record to break! ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations to Greg Gasiciel of Rhodes, Michigan for breaking the state record for smallmouth bass! The bass was caught at Hubbard Lake in Alcona County and weighed in at 9.33 pounds, 24.5 inches. The previous record was set back in 1906 by a smallmouth weighing 9.25 pounds and measuring 27.25 inches (state records are recognized by weight only and are verified by fisheries biologists). Find out how he landed this great catch at bit.ly/1RmmGDv. #MiFishing
