Fish are totally dependent upon water to breathe, feed and grow, excrete wastes and reproduce. They perform all their bodily functions in water. Water can determine the success or failure of fish to perform these functions. Physical and chemical qualities of water is critical to have a successful pond or lake operation.
Dissolved gases, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, ammonia, alkalinity, pH and hardness has to be in correct proportions for fish to growth, and reproduce. When these proportions are not correct fish will not bite or feed, reproduction declines (which couses your fish population to get out of balance). Fish will not grow in out of balance conditions and fish death can occur.
General dissolved oxygen requirements in parts per million (ppm) for fish.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is commonly found in water from photosynthesis. Fish can tolerate concentrations of 10 ppm provided dissolved oxygen concentrations are high. Water supporting good fish populations normally contains less than 5 ppm of free carbon dioxide. In water used for intensive pond fish culture, carbon dioxide levels may fluctuate from 0 ppm in the afternoon to 5-20 ppm at daybreak. Excessively high levels of carbon dioxide (greater than 20 ppm) may interfere with the oxygen utilization by the fish.
Dissolved gases, especially
nitrogen, are usually measured in terms of "percent saturation." Any value
greater than the amount of gas the water normally holds at a given temperature
constitutes supersaturation. A gas supersaturating level above 110% is usually
Gases (carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, methane, etc.) can build up to dangerously high levels and fish die without any visible external signs.
Suttle Fish Farm realizes
that a one time water sample is fine if your water test is O.K. but if a
problem is found you need to have your water checked until the problem is
