I dont think that will work on my pondYou can use it to move water, but you’ll have to devise a filter. For example, I have a power head used to airate water or combined with an under gravel filter. I then attached a bottle with holes cut in the side that I filled with polyester stuffing. This pulls water through the filling, and the stuffing filters out the gunk.this size works ok for my tank, I’m working on trying to find a better container that I can clean when it gets full.
I didn't see in this thread where you mentioned water quality tests..I dont think that will work on my pond
I have dead debris from those floating plants
And now i have a bigger problem
I have ick ich on my guppies
Looks like a fungus white stuff o. Ther fins eyes
Please help me save them
What am i doing wrong
Filter the water, treat for ick, and remove any dead plant debris. Go buy a big aquarium filter to get you through this for now, and standard ick treatment. Research online how to decontaminate the tank and plants, but I think treating the water might do it. There is a chance your fish came with the ick already, but something about your water/ situation has allowed it to take a firm hold. You’ll want to fully treat them, and do a quarantine before adding any others. Filtration is key to healthy environments in such small containers. A couple of the power heads with a diy filter like I have will do to get you by until you can get better. YouTube Rachel O’Leary and King of DIY, Rachel covers small fish, keeping them, issues she has had, Joey covers how to make filters and tanks, plus his bigger fish. They can give good pointers and better advice.

Poor water quality will stress the fish and make them susceptible to infection and disease.
There should be somewhere on the Island that can sell you some water test kits.
These are the ones that are most popular:
Once we know your water quality based on the above test kits (get both), we can help you improve your water quality and treat from there.
Yeah i will need a filtration can you recommend a good filtrationThe only bugs I worry about are ones eating my fish- dragonfly nymph and I had a spider that would catch small fry. Little bugs are just part of the ecosystem. Treat for ich, get some filtration, and test the water.
Yes youre soo right its a fungusFuzzy white spots are not ich, they may be fungus.
Ich will produce white lumps that resemble rice grains.
Ich is not fuzzy.
Be sure of the diagnosis before treatment.
