Used Barleystraw minibale

First job this month of August – remove the old barleystraw minibale that has been in the water 6 months as the new one added last month should now be activated. You don’t want the old one rotting down any further in the water as it will start to decompose releasing unwanted nutrients.

It will look black and begin to smell if it has started to decompose and should not be left any longer as it will then begin to become the problem rather than the cure for greenwater algae.
