The FishScience Pond Fish Range - give your fish what they want

Hi Guys,

Springtime is the time of year when pond owners begin to prepare for the warmer months ahead. Maintenance is carried out to repair any damage caused by our winter weather. Clearing out any unwanted overgrown weeds and algae is essential now because it can be in abundance mid spring. Ideally aiming for 50% of the water surface to be free for the coming summer months. 

This is the best time to decide on any major changes or upgrades you wish to do to your pond. Most good aquatic stores and garden centres begin to promote their pond ranges and have some great deals of you look around. Its also a good time to stock up on pond food.

The diet of your pond fish is the key to having a healthy successful pond. Much in the same way as your aquarium fish, pond fish like Koi would feed on insects in the wild. This is why Dr David Pool has created his range of pond foods using natural ingredients like insect meal, vegetables & spirulina algae to name a few.

Provides a diet that pond fish eat in the wild.

Promotes good health and easy digestion while reduces waste

Blend of 3 sticks to provide a variety for all your fish

8cm long stick which are easily consumed by all fish over 8cm long

Colour enhancers like spirulina algae

You can feed your fish the variety pond fish food up to 3 times a day which is great if you have kids that are wanting to see the fish come to the surface. 

Made with a natural insect based fish love

Contains beta glucans & omega 3 to promote good health

Specially formulated to aid digestion and reduce waste

Perfectly sized pellets for all your ponds fish

Great colour enhancers like krill, grass meal, carrot and garlic

This tub is the great all rounder and is recommended for all your fish together. Feed this food 1-2 a day and only what your fish can consume within 5 minutes.

Replicates the winter diet of pond fish

Includes wheatgerm & insect meal to help digestion even in winter

Aids good health and prevents your fish from using food reserves

Natural ingredients like garlic, beta glucans and omega 3 oils

Perfectly sized sticks for all fish over 8cm

During winter its essential to care for your fish correctly. If your fish don't rise to the surface looking for food, don't feed them as this can lead to rotting food and eventually an algae bloom or ill fish.

Recreates the foods that Koi would eat in the wild

Amazing colour enhancing ingredients like Carrot, shrimp and krill

Formulated with insect meal to reduce waste and easy digestion

Also contains healthy additives like omega 3 and beta glucans

Dr David Pool has developed the Fish Science foods based on 45 years personal experience with aquarium and pond fish. Over the years Dave has written three books, appeared on TV and radio aswell as contributing over 250 articles and speaking all over the world. His background and experience puts him in a great position to understand fish and fishkeepers – and to ensure that the products and service that FishScience offers is exactly what they require.

Betta 1050 Canister filter review

Hi Guys,

For most of us money dictates which direction our hobby goes. Wether its opting for a lesser adventurous fish or a smaller aquarium, Money always has the final say. If we could visit our local store and take whatever we wanted, our homes would be filled with shiny new aquariums running of the biggest external filters you could imagine.

When I first started fish keeping, everything I was able to get my hands on was preowned. Aquariums should always be passed on when your done with them, I think anyway! I was young when I started and with a lack of free cash, the chance of a new (to me, anyways) filter was always welcomed.

Its great to be able to buy the best but sometimes your fish keeping funds just don't allow that and we have to look for cheaper alternatives.

There is a few brands out there that are working hard to offer products that can compete on functionality and quality while trying to keep the price tags realistic. One of those brands is 'Betta'

They offer …

Barilius Bakeri - The Blue Spotted Hill Trout

The Barilius Bakeri or Blue spotted Hill Trout is a shoaling fish you won't see very often in the local fish stores. Originating from the Western Ghats mountains in southwestern India, these Cyprinidaes offer an appealing alternative to the usual barbs/danios.
You may see these fish being sold under several names like 'blue-dotted mirror fish' or 'royal danio' all sporting the catching bluish-green spots along the length of the body. These spots begin to fade slightly as the fish ages. a paper white flick is also present on the tip of the dorsal and anal fins.

In the aquarium they should be kept in groups of five or more. This will allow the species to develop a pecking order and prevent other smaller fish being targeted. If kept in a smaller group, the smallest fish could become a continuous target for the more dominant fish and if kept individually, they would eventually become aggressive to any similar looking fish in the aquarium. With this in min…

Tri-Spec App controller - Review - *updated*

Hi Guys,

Lighting is a key factor in a successful planted tank. Some plants require a lot and some prefer less. knowing your plants needs is just as important as knowing your fish needs and having the right lights for your aquarium is a must. It is also important to consider the amount of time you have your lights switched on for too. This is called the "photo period" and the general advised length of time is a maximum of 9 hours.

For years, the best way to achieve a regular automatic lighting routine was to employ the services of a socket timer. These nippy little buggers consisted of a dial in which you would pick out the relevant time slots for whatever time you wanted the socket to power on for. Ive personally used these for CO2 setups and they do what they are supposed to do. I personally didn't like the extra space they took up, but maybe that was just the style I had.

It wasn't until LED light units started being introduced to the hobby that we really had a mod…
