Pond Leaves

 

There is not a lot so say on the suject of leaves other than too many can raise the toxins in the pond, but if you have a good filtration or a running water system going through it then the problems drop dramatically.

A pond needs a small amount of leaves and detritus to support some types of insects,bugs, wild life and the bottom dwelling invertibrates.

Microorganisms such as phytoplankton and algae are the first part of the food chain in pond habitats, and are essential for sustaining life in that area.If you are controlling your PH etc by regular testing then I can not see them causing a problem.
