          Comments about Mini and Micro Barley Bales:

          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.

          After introducing the barley ball to my small fish pond, the clumps of algae are no longer floating on the water however, the entire pond is now a very cloudy green.

                      I have a large fountain. I use an algaecide, but it's not enough to keep the water clean and I don't want to have to change the water. These seem to help. So far, I haven't had to change the water.

                          I haven't really noticed a difference in the pond. It isn't getting any worse, so I guess that means that it's working. Gets waterlogged pretty fast and sinks to the bottom of the pond.
