Blue Pond!

We accidentally place Crystal Blue in out pond and now it is blue. Our pond is one month old and we have 6 fish. We tried active carbon in the biofall 24 hours ago but it hasn't changed. What are my options?

Should we drain 25% of the pond and fill it up? Do I need to place dechlorinator while I am filling the pond back up? I am looking for some suggestions. Help!

Hmm... I'm not sure how long Crystal Blue will last, but since it's not harmful to the fish I'm assuming that you just don't like the blue color.

You could bit by bit replace the water, and you may also be correct about having to lower the ph. That really depends upon the ph of your tap water. You do have a ph kit, right? Check the ph of your pond, and the ph of your tap water. You may need to adjust it.
