          Comments about Mini and Micro Barley Bales:

          I used this in a large muck tub in which I grow water flowers. The algae growth is always so unsightly. Early this season I added the barley bale and almost immediately, the algae cleared up. Two months later the water is still clear. I will definitely be using this product in the future.

                  Comments about Mini and Micro Barley Bales:

                  These mini balls are to be placed directly in the water. the former barley ball had a plastic case that remained afloat. the mini balls keep disappearing underwater and I have to retrieve them and wait 2 days for them to dry out. not good because to remain effective they have to be on the surface.

                  If you have raccoon traffic, try barley extraact instead.

                    Try the barley extract instead. The first night racoons fished it out of my smaller pond and tore it to pieces.

                          I read the reviews before purchasing this product to try to clear the water in my Koi pond. Well after a month, the water is still green and I can't see my fish. So I guess the product flunks my use. On to the search for a way to be able to see my fish, or tear the pond out completely and put lawn in it's place. If the kids can't see the fish I just as well remove the pond so I don't have to worry about them falling in.
