Sub-surface aeration such as bubblers can be advantagous in supplementing oxygen to an existing waterbody suffering from low levels.
Other forms of biological control are products or naturally occurring compounds that help with the inactivation or reduction of nutrients in a waterbody. The goal of this strategy is to improve the overall health of a disturbed waterbody. This form is only as successful as the knowledge of the excessive nutrient source(s) that has created the excessive algae and/or substrate over-abundance. Along with implementing of aeration (physical control), specific types of enzyme and bacteria products can be aggressively introduced to supplement existing populations helping to digest excessive suspended nutrients or bottom sediments (muck). Following a properly prescribed process, the quality or health of a disturbed and unbalanced waterbody can be enhanced.
