An accurate pond thermometer with easy to read Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The Pond Thermometer floats on the surface of the water and is important for measuring the temperature during the Spring, Autumn and Winter. Knowing the temperature of your pond water will tell you when to change to winter feeding and when to not feed at all. (Wheatgerm base fishfood when the temperature drops below 55F).
Temperature can be a major factor in how you treat your pond in some of the following ways:
- Algaecides typically require water temperatures of 60-65 degrees or warmer to work efficiently.
- Knowing whether or not to feed your fish and what type of fishfood to use.
- If water becomes too hot in the summer it will not hold enough oxygen for the fish.
