    keep it simple

    increase your cleaning schedule to flush out dead organics and make sure there are no dead spots in your pond with a mulm build up. that part is easy. the real key here is to get your ammonia monitored regularly and get your biofiltration up and effective.

    its a simple fact with respect to the nitrogen cycle that if you have a good pond water ratio of 20 gallons per pound of fish or more, 60 is great, 80 is wonderful, a good flow rate through the system that is goldilocks solid (not too hot, not too cold), a good maintenance schedule, and effective mechanical and biological filtration the only problem the pond should give you is you will drown if you get drunk and fall in.
