  1. Sustainable Aquaculture Development (
      "In traditional, extensive aquaculture, fish can be bred in open waters such as lakes, estuaries or coastal bays, where they feed on naturally available nutrients, or in farm ponds, where they can be fed with by-products from the farm. Traditionally in China, more than five species of carp are bred together to make the best use of feeds and ponds." 08-07

  2. Controlling Pond Algae
      "The war on green water is a battle that can be won. Even though the nutrient source cannot be eliminated completely, it can be limited to a workable size. With plenty of plant life, a good U.V. Sterilizer, and appropriately sized filtration, crystal-clear pond water can become a reality. There are even some good products to help you along the way, if you know what to look for." 11-08

  3. Pond Construction (
      "It is very important to know how many gallons your pond contains, as this is vital information when you are required to treat your pond, in order to keep your pond and fish in tip top condition." 08-07

  4. Pond Filters and Pumps (
      "Although it is not compulsory to install a filtration system,I would recommend you do, as it can make a substantial difference. Not only to the clarity of the water, but more importantly, it helps to purify the water by eliminating toxic waste products such as ammonia and nitrites, both having a detrimental effect on fish, which could lead to diseases and ultimately death." 08-07

  5. Pond Fish (
      "Before any fish or plants are added to your pond you should switch on your pump and circulate water for several days.This allows time for the Chlorine & Chloramine (which is harmful to both FISH AND PLANTS) to be safely removed from the tap water." 08-07

  6. Pond Plants (
      "Submerged oxygenating plants should be considered essential in most ponds as they absorb many chemicals from the water, such as metallic salts. As ordinary tap water contains such substances it is a good idea to have several bunches in your pond. This will go a long way towards taking the hard edge from tap water." 08-07

  7. Solar Ponds (
      "A solar pond is large-scale solar energy collector with integral heat storage for supplying thermal energy. A solar pond can be used for various applications, such as process heating, water desalination, refrigeration, drying and Solar power generation." 08-07

  8. Solar-Powered Circulator (
      "The SolarBee can correct problems of overloading, odors, algae blooms, duckweed (in many cases), high BOD, high suspended solids (TSS), high ammonia (N), high phosphorus (P), high pH, low DO, and excessive volatile sludge buildup."
