This is a great way to mark your airstone or diffuser location in your pond. Then, just attach the duck to your airstone or your airstone housing bucket, and you can retrieve it anytime you want. This makes it easy and convenient to clean your diffusers or adjust their physical location without dragging everything into shore.
We stock both male and female mallards. Please specify in the notes section of your order if you have a preference.
When you install an airstone, it is crucial that you can easily find it for cleaning or for moving it to a new location as needed. The Airstone Marker – Duck Decoy is a great way to find your airstone and may even attract other ducks to your pond. This duck serves as an easy way to locate it without having to break up the natural look of your environment.
Why is proper aeration important?
When you have a pond or lake, it is important to have proper aeration. Aerating your pond means having something in place where you can circulate and move water and oxygen throughout the surface and below the water. You want to ensure there is no buildup of stagnant water, which can be harmful to fish and have an overall negative impact on the health of your pond. If you do not have proper aeration, your fish will not live in all of your ponds. Instead, they will be trapped in the upper layer of your pond, where the oxygen occurs naturally. Having aeration allows for air to be added to your lake or pond, which allows your fish to enjoy the entirety of the habitat. Also, proper aeration allows for water circulation to prevent an overabundance of waste products like dead leaves on the bottom of your pond. Decomposing materials on the bottom of your pond can cause unpleasant odors, the buildup of muck, and even algae blooms. If you want to get the most out of your lake or pond, you need to make sure you have proper aeration.
