    String algae

    Hey guys, new to this and ponds around a year old. Quick question about barley straw and string algae.. 1 will it actually cure it? Water is crystal clear but I have 1 sturgeon and I've Been told they can get caught in it? I've had barley straw bails in there around 3 months and I'm not sure when to remove them & replenish? Thanks

    Hi and welcome to fish-keeping.com brodec01

    You are recommend to replace your barley straw every 4 to 6 months to keep it in tip top condition and make sure you have good aeration in your pond for this to work.

    Regards
    Gary.
