Re: [andyng_sy] New Pond Water Green - UPDATE

Right move, get the water test kits immediately. Reliable brands include Sera, Azoo or Tetra. I have been using Tetra since I started koi keeping. No complaints. Good to start with pH, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.
As much as you and I would like to beef up our kois by feeding a lot, I suggest you cut down on the feeding initially until you are sure your water readings are good. Overloading the filter is unadvisable.
