Latest water tests are looking good. The majority of nutrients that came in during the flooding are starting to be taken up by the growing plants, including algae. Water temperature is also nice and low (11.4 °C), and seems to have swung back from the record highs in February and March to being on the low side!

Oxygenation continues to be good (above 100% saturation), probably due to the plant growth, but the water is a little cloudy due to the algae. Thankfully, there isn’t any evidence to suggest that the algae is anything sinister, and now that the nutrients are declining to very low levels it should hamper it’s growth.
