      Bird water fountain, I did prefer the squares when we could get them, and just replaced the barley straw. But since you no longer have them available, these will work.

      I added the barley roll to the pond just before a large storm. It seemed to help with the muck

      Seems to clear the water pretty good, but has to be taken out about once a week to dry out.

      Doesn't appear to work for already established algae.

      I have. Green string algae in a larger pond and brown string algae in a small pond with constantly added fresh water. These rye bales did not touch either. Help!,

          Mini Barley Bails are very easy to use. Simply float bail in small pond and within a short time the water will clear up and suspended algae clumps together and sinks to the bottom where it can be suctioned up.

            Comments about : Mini Barley Bales, Set of 2:

            The agent that helped me could not find in stock the larger bale that is used to replace used bales in the floating plastic ball. - Replacement bales came in individual boxes easy for storage and use when needed. - I would only recommend to owners of small ponds.

              I have a tiny pond, so I bought the mini balls. I threw one into the muck, and watched as the water slowly cleared over a period of a couple of weeks. And all the little critters in my pond are still thriving.
