Never, never, never-ever fit an ozone system to your pond.

The consequeces are that after several years you may start losing fish, with them showing similar symptoms to fatty degeneration of the internal organs, chronic blood infections, with the fish looking scabby and wasting away. (see health fat fish, fish tuberculosis. and hexamita)

These products have not been tested for long term effects on fresh water fish ponds.

In my opinion they're just a gimmick - a expensive one at that! The manufactures have data lasting more than a year or so, but something as toxic as ozone should have at least 10 years research

They have been used for many years in the marine fish keeping side of the hobby, but the complexities and density of salt water - which by the way is classed as alive - is in no way akin to fresh water in my opinion.

I have, over the last few years, seen many koi ponds and fisheries with fish dying of unfound reasons, until last year when I found 6 koi ponds over one year. The results of post mortems - ozone poisoning - nothing else could have damaged the fish internal organs other than a virus or poison, and all tests for virus and poison were negative.

I suspect they are many more symptoms.

If you're a fish keeper reading this, if you use ozone, you may now have found the reasons for your fish deaths.

I my self would never fit ozone to my system.
