Available in two sizes:
200g packs of powder
(treats a minimum of 6000 litres).
1Kg water soluble sachets
(treats a minimum of 30,000 litres).
In practise (and from customer feedback) dilution ratios of twice our estimated figure have been achieved, for example, 1Kg has treated up to 60,000 litres. This is possibly due to the varying depths of ponds.

Dyofix Pond Black halts the growth of algae
Pond Black is used in smaller ponds where the need to stop algae growth and weed growth is important, however Pond Black is mainly used for its aesthetic qualities.
Pond Black 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.
Features and benefits
- Blocks light, denying algae its food source
- Enhances your pond's reflective qualities
- Creates a stunning mirror-like backdrop for your water plants
- Free of pesticides and herbicides
- Harmless to water filters and plants
- Saves time for the weekend gardener
- Helps created spectacular water features
- One application can last up to three months
Pond Black is supplied in cold water soluble sachets, each sachet capable of treating a minimum of 6000 litres of pond water.
If more than one sachets are required, simply drop them into different parts of the pond. The sachet will dissolve to release the dye. The water can be stirred to speed up the mixing process.
Pond Black has fully mixed in when you cannot see below the surface of the water. Don't add any more at this stage.
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.
