There are many ways that you can improve your garden and putting in a pond is just one of them. Just hearing the sound of running water can be very soothing and you could pass many hours in your garden just reading a box and relaxing. You could also add some fish to your new water area and there are so many different kinds and colours to choose from. It has been proven that having fish and watching them helps to reduce blood pressure and stress. This is why when you go into any dentists or doctor’s waiting room, you will notice more and more aquariums in there.
If you want to stock or re-stock your current pond or aquarium, there are a number of specialist shops that provide a vast number of freshwater breeds in Woking and they are on hand to give you any advice. Here are some things that they might tell you.
- It is important to try to keep the water properly aerated as fish need it to breathe. A fish that can breathe easily is a happier fish and you will find that it will live longer and also grow much bigger.
- The bigger the pond that you are going to put them in the better. They need room to swim around and it helps with their growth as well. A bigger pond is suitable for better breeding.
- Your pond must be kept free from algae and other harmful bacteria and it is recommended that you give it a thorough clean at least once a week. This is a great way to forget about your other worries and just concentrate on the cleaning.
For all your freshwater breeds of fish, call into your local store in Woking and see the excellent selection that they have on offer.
