The Incredible Edible Egg And Your Pond

You’ve probably heard of green eggs and ham, the three egg omelette, or eggs over easy.

But eggs and your pond? Probably not.

BUT…you need to hear this because the next time you make scrambled eggs for the family you’ll want to save a part of those eggs and consider using them in your pond. If you have algae, if you’re using beneficial bacteria, and if you want to try something that won’t cost you a penny to get better performance…watch the video below.

  1. Greetings Mark,

    Of course for those of us watching this video the first questions is how many egg shells per 1000 gallons will make a difference. I have a 1/4 acre aerated pond with 500000 gallons of water that I’m treating with biospheres and bio blast. But in the height of the heat it is still a loosing battle with algae. If I have to obtain commercial grade calcium where would I want to look for it and what do I need to know?

    Like always, Thanks for your updates.


  2. Hi IG,
    You can leave them in as long as you like. Let them dissolve over time and after a couple of weeks, replace them if you like.

    Curt…a lot might depend on how soft your water is to begin with. I’d collect the shells of maybe a half dozen eggs and try that…you can always add more if you like and monitor your water hardness with some test strips. For a large pond look for agricultural limestone. Here’s a short report on liming a pond from TAMU.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Thanks for the tip. This is one that I will
    try. One of the small ponds we have always
    has an algae problem. It does get a fair amount of sun all day. Thanks so much for the
    info. and comments of others.

  5. Hi Mark
    Problem again with duckweed. Sprayed last year with Weedtrine-D and it worked. Sprayed last week with no success,weed only increased. Maybe it needs another spraying with Weedtrine-D? What other type of chemical/herbicide can I use? Where can you get grass carp fish and how many needed for a third acre pond. We’ve been using your algae-off and biospheres last year and it did a great job with the algae problem.
    Thanks for your help,

  6. I think you could do it either way…if you wanted to wash them first that would be fine…and if you didn’t it probably wouldn’t hurt a thing.
