just chuck a bale in and see if it has made any difference in a couple if weeks.

We threw one barley bale into our 5,000 litre fish pond and it's worked, but only temporarily. Haven't yet used barley bale in our dam, not sure of its cost-effectiveness (one bale costs approx $30). However with our fish pond, we have been using a product called "Allgone", patented by our local seed and produce supplier, has worked wonders! It's all organic, contains some sort of friendly bacteria that munches away on algae without harming any living creatures or waterways. If anyone here's interested I can get some info for you. :wink:

Plant a garden and you plant happiness!
