All about the fish

Since 2022 the lake is equiped with a fully automated aeration & monitoring system. The global warming we are experiencing the last years has affected us all, also the fish. Therefore we needed to help them! 🙂 

Our monitoring system gets constant readings of dissolved oxygen, PH, temperature & water conductivity. From end of march till september the aeration system runs 24/7 to keep the fish in healthy condition.

3 diffusers have been placed at the bottom of the lake. Don’t worry, it’s impossible to get your lines stuck at them!
