Dyofix black pond dye halts the growth of algae
Pond Black is used in smaller ponds where the need to stop algae growth and weed growth is important. The black pond dye absorbs and blocks all daylight, allowing no light to penetrate below the surface, hence the black appearance.
Your pond plants that have leaves and flowers above the surface of the water are not affected at all by the use of Pond Black. Fish are also safe in this environment but Pond Black darkens the surface of your pond markedly, making it impossible to see the fish.

Application method for very small ponds
It is suggested that 200g should be mixed in a known quantity of water, for example, 6 litres – use a watering can for the mixture. Carefully pour out the mixture into 6 x 1 litre bottles. 1 litre of the mixture will treat a minimum of 1000 litres.
Use the amount that proves to be sufficient and close the remaining bottle(s) and identify them as “DyoFix Pond Black Liquid” and store them in a dark place for future use. If the bottles have been standing for a long period, shake them before use.
