Cycling A 300 Gallon Pond
How do you pond keepers cycle your ponds ? Same as aquariums ? I don't use heavy filtration in my pond...mostly for water movement with a simple sponge filter attached to the water pump. I do weekly 10% water changes and net out debris.
Same principles apply. Carbon and biological media will help a lot and strong flow. Weekly water changes shouldn't be necessary unless extenuating circumstances occur. Removal of rotting debris is essential. Live plants always help if light permits.
