Spring set up

Posted by Joecd none (My Page) on

I live in Pa and was planning on getting my 5000 gallon pond running again at the end of February. I was going to start with a water change of about 500 gallons then add micro lift sluge away. I do have two bogs. Should I wait to add the micro lift until later in the spring? I also do weekly water changes of about 100gallons. Is this depleting my micro lift additive? Can you please recommend anything else for me to do or alter my ideas? I have all types of fish ranging from minnows to catfish to Koi. Thank you for your help

i would wait until later in the spring.the bio will work better with warmer water

RE: Spring set up

You might find the Microbe Lift is not necessary, especially with bogs in the system.Why not wait until the water is warmer and test the water before you spend your money?

RE: Spring set up

What type of testing results do I need to see if my water has enough good bacteria in it?
