How do I Get Rid of Foam in My Koi Pond?

As you may have experienced, keeping a clear, healthy, balanced koi pond calls for the right pond equipment and a bit of work.

Despite your efforts, occasionally the delicate balance is disturbed and unwanted foam can begin to build on the water surface. So what exactly is causing this unsightly addition to your pond water? Well, there is no one answers to this question; there are quite a few factors that need to be taken into consideration if you wish to get to the bottom of the problem.

Pond foam is commonly caused by an accumulation of biological matter from things like overdue filter maintenance, insufficient filter size, lack of aeration, and overfeeding pond fish. Other reasons include:
  • water conditions
  • overstocking fish
  • a filter that is too small for your pond capacity
  • recent use of medication
  • fish spawning
