Activated carbon is used in fish ponds, water gardens, koi ponds, and other water features for many reasons. Activated carbon can be used to remove stinky odors from the pond, pull out chemicals that were accidentally added to the pond, and/or to make the water look so clear that the fish are swimming in air.
Sold in 1lb bags for your fish pond, water garden, koi pond, or other water feature. Activated carbon can be placed anywhere in the pond or it can be added into any pond filter or pond skimmer filter.
There’s no exact science as to how much carbon a given fish pond, water garden, koi pond, or other water feature may need although we at PondMarket have devised the below table over the years:
There are three reasons a person wouldadd carbon to the pond:
- to increase the effectiveness of the filtration system
- to increase the clarity of the pond water
- to fix a problem; i.e. odor, tea color tint
The pond, pond fish, pond plants, and other wildlife cannot be hurt by carbon.
|Pond Size|| For Increased Filtration |
and/or Enhanced Water Quality
|To Fix a Problem|
|0 – 2000 Gallons||2lbs||4lbs|
|2000 – 5000 Gallons||4lbs||8lbs|
Carbon should be changed out every 8 weeks unless it’s being used to fix a problem. In these cases it should be changed every 4 weeks.
