NEW! SuperPond Bac-Tabs 2000X

 "Skipper" Pond Tablets

Microbial based Pond Clarifier

*Removes Phosphates, Nitrates and Ammonia

       The launcher can place the Pond Tablets from 200' to 300' out into your lake for proper placement.

SuperPond Bac-Tabs contain a unique patented microbial system specifically formulated to remove excess organic nutrients such as phosphorous and nitrates from the entire water column. When aqueous environments are overloaded with organic nutrients they tend to become overrun with undesirable growth and the entire aquatic ecosystem becomes unbalanced.

Bac-Tabs contains 58 strains of select aerobic and facultative bacteria capable of rapidly biodegrading cellulose, lignin, hydrocarbons and other organic contaminants in aqueous environments. A number of these proprietary strains also utilize the excess phosphorous and nitrates to satiate their metabolic functions. When the excess organic load is removed it results in the elimination of organic sediment, suspended particulate matter and foul odors thereby providing for naturally cleaner, clearer water.

SuperPond Bac-Tabs work best when water temperatures are between 50-100 degrees F. In order for the microbial system to establish itself and provide maximum efficacy the water must contain a minimum of 5 - 6 % dissolved oxygen. SuperPond strongly recommends bottom aeration utilizing a diffused air system to maintain dissolved oxygen levels. In the event mechanical aeration is not feasible SuperPond has developed a unique Biochemical Oxygen Release System, which provides a continuous source of slow release oxygen to expedite and maintain microbial establishment.

Typically you will see an improvement in water clarity within 2 weeks of implementing the program again provided adequate dissolved oxygen levels are maintained.

SHOCK DOSE:
Apply 2 ¼ pounds (15 tablets) per acre-foot of water. (325,000 gal.) Start application once water temperature reaches 45 - 50 degrees F.
MAINTENANCE DOSE:
1 pound (7 tablets) per acre-foot every 3-4 weeks

If pond / lake is extremely dirty at onset of initial application repeat shock dose again 3 weeks later and then revert to maintenance dose. Provide adequate mechanical aeration to support microbial populations. Evenly distribute product around pond or lake, avoid dumping product in one concentrated location. "Skip" tablets out into middle and evenly throughout lake to distribute bacteria somewhat evenly. Use of air disk stations with air pumps, or use of fountains, to aerate and mix bacteria throughout pond or lake will provide best results.
If pond / lake is extremely dirty at onset of initial application repeat shock dose again 3 weeks later and then revert to maintenance dose. Provide adequate mechanical aeration to support microbial populations. Evenly distribute product around pond or lake, avoid dumping product in one concentrated location.

Koi Pond Magic 2000X

Koi Pond Magic is a microbial based water treatment specifically formulated to restore ecological equilibrium in aquatic environments. In most cases, poor water quality results from an overload of nutrients, primarily excess phosphates and nitrates. This nutrient buildup creates an unbalanced ecosystem often leading to eutrophication. Koi Pond Magic creates clean pond and lake-water through a natural biological process. This microbial based product contains aerobic and facultative bacteria capable of biodegrading cellulose, lignin, hydrocarbons and other organic pollutants in aqueous environments. Koi Pond Magic also contains select microbial strains, which utilize the excess phosphates, nitrates and ammonia in the water column to satiate their metabolic functions. When used as directed Koi Pond Magic will improve water clarity, reduce the presence of organic sediment and suspended particulate matter, reduce the incidence of foul odors and enhance water quality.

BLUE POND MAGIC 2000X

 
SuperPond Blue Pond Magic is a biologically enhanced colorant specifically designed to enhance water conditions and improve clarity. This multi-faceted formulation utilizes a synergistic blend of ingredients to bring pond / lake water back into ecological equilibrium. The product is comprised of naturally occurring, beneficial microorganisms, an effective quantity of water - soluble colorant and a complex microbial growth stimulant.

The water - soluble colorant within the formulation drastically reduces the penetration of sunlight into the water column and provides a natural aesthetic quality to natural bodies of water.

The primary active ingredient is the microbial portion of the formulation. SuperPond Blue Pond Magic utilizes a highly concentrated, biologically diverse microbial system to remove organic pollutants and excess nutrients from the water. Unbalanced aquatic ecosystems are primarily the result of excess nutrients in the water column, particularly phosphorous and nitrogen. SuperPond Blue Pond Magic incorporates a number of microbial strains, which utilize phosphorous and other nutrients to satiate their metabolic functions. The microorganisms consume the nutrients thereby removing them from the unbalanced ecosystem.

The microbial portion will also serve to expedite the biodegradation of the excess organic sludge and muck, which accumulates at the bottom of ponds and lakes. SuperPond Blue Pond Magic introduces additional microbial strains into the aquatic environment, which have an affinity for biodegrading these types of complex organic compounds.

In order for any microbial-based formulation to perform efficiently in an aquatic environment there must be rapid microbial establishment. Often times these are hostile environments and the microorganisms have difficulty proliferating. The most critical stage in this process occurs within 48 hours of inoculation. To overcome this impediment, the SuperPond Blue Pond Magic formulation includes a unique microbial growth stimulant designed specifically for aquatic environments. This naturally derived stimulant promotes rapid microbial establishment, which enables the microbial component to attain the optimal level required to provide maximum efficacy.

  IMPROVED LYMNOZYME    

LymnoZyme is a wonderful new and improved biological formula of natural occurring bacteria, enzymes and micro nutrients that when introduced into pond water infected with Aeromonas, Pseudomonas or any gram negative or gram positive bacteria, competes with these pathogens for the nutrients in the water that they depend on for their survival while waiting to attack fish. When used as directed, Lymnozyme will reduce the bacterial count of Aeromonas, Pseudomonas or pathogens to such low levels that they will not be a threat to the health of  your fish. It is impossible to completely remove the Aeromonas, and Pseudomonas bacteria from the pond water, but Lymnozyme, when used on a regular basis, will keep the Aeromonas, Pseudomonas and other pathogens levels so low they will not affect your fish.

Lymnozyme is not a medication and is safe for your fish when used as directed. Don't forget to turn off your UV light during the treatment program for Lymnozyme. Lymnozyme does not compete with Microbe-Lift due to the fact that the two materials are removing different nutrients from the water. While Microbe-Lift removes nutrients which normally feed algae (ammonia, nitrogen, etc), Lymnozyme removes the nutrients which Aeromonas and Pseudomonas require to survive in your pond (fish waste materials). Because they work to remove different nutrients, Microbe-Lift and LymnoZyme can both be used at the same time.

Lymnozyme now does not have to be refrigerated to extend it's bottled life to beyond one month  should be refrigerated for longer life). Lymnozyme will remain viable for one to two years without refrigeration, or longer with refrigeration. Similar to Microbe-Lift, Lymnozyme requires an initial treatment of 3 doses every 3 days, followed by 2 smaller treatments each week for two weeks. Following this initial treatment, you are then on a weekly schedule which maintains your pond in a condition of high beneficial bacteria levels. If you maintain your pond in this condition, you should never have problems with Aeromonas or Pseudomonas type diseases (hole in the side, hole in the head, etc) except for fish brought in with the disease.

Initial treatment schedule:

1.    20 ml Lymnozyme  per 1000 gallons of pond water each three days, for 3 treatments.

2.    20 ml of Lymnozyme  per 1000 gallons of pond water once each week, for 2 weeks.

Maintenance Application Rate:

Apply 10 ml of Lymnozyme per 1000 gallons of pond water once each week to maintain water quality conditions.

  PH DECREASER   

PH DECREASER increases acidity of pond water and is safe for plants and fish, phosphate free. Determine your ponds' water volume in gallons as follows:  length x width x average depth x 7.5 will give you the number of gallons in your pond. Check your PH level with a PH test kit, recommended PH level for plants and fish is 7.0, then follow the table below to get the correct dosage. 
12-PHDECQT 32 OZ $22.99
12-PHDECGAL GAL $67.99
PH BUFFER hold the ph to a preset ph level until it is used up. You should first reduce the ph using the decreaser above, then add the appropriate amount of buffer to then maintain the ph of 7.5, until it is "used up" in the process of removing the materials that have been increasing the ph.The ph buffer is safe for plants, fish, and is  phosphate free. Check your PH level with a PH test kit, recommended PH level for plants and fish is 7.0 - 7.5, then follow the instructions on the container to get the correct dosage.
12-PHBUF751L 1 LB $20.99

ECO FIX 

Pond Care® EcoFix™
Makes pond water clean and clear. Breaks down dead algae. Increases the concentration of dissolved oxygen in pond water. Helps create a healthy ecosystem for pond fish. Can be used in ponds containing salt.
Purpose and Benefits:

EcoFix helps create a healthy ecosystem for pond fish, makes pond water clean and clear, breaks down dead algae and increases oxygen levels in pond water.

Murky, cloudy water keeps you from enjoying your pond and fish as much as you would like. In addition, dissolved organics and sludge build up and reduce the oxygen concentration in the water, creating a breeding ground for disease-causing, pathogenic bacteria.

EcoFix contains five strains of live bacteria that digest sludge and reduce dissolved organics, making pond water clean and clear. The bacteria, which remain in a dormant state until added to the pond, become active and begin consuming the organic substances responsible for cloudy, hazy pond water. EcoFix will never smell like "rotten eggs" which is caused by the build-up of toxic hydrogen sulfide. EcoFix needs no refrigeration and should be stored at room temperature. Accidental freezing of the product will not reduce its performance in the pond. In cold water (below 40°F) the activity of EcoFix, as with all bacterial products, will be reduced.

Directions for Use:

Shake well before using
Initial Dose: Add 2 ounces (60 ml) for every 250 U.S. gallons (945 L) twice a week for two weeks.

Maintenance Dose: Add 1 ounce (30 ml) for every 250 U.S. gallons (945 L) every two weeks.

End of season: Same as initial dose.

SUPERPOND POND SALT TREATMENT

 

SUPERPOND SOLAR DRIED POND SALT CRYSTALS

SUPERPOND SOLAR DRIED POND SALT is an all-natural salt intended for use in ornamental fish ponds and water gardens. SUPERPOND Pond Salt adds natural electrolytes, improves gill function, and reduces fish stress. Koi and goldfish actively maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in their body fluids. Electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, chloride, calcium and magnesium are removed from the water by chloride cells located on the gills. These electrolytes are essential for the uptake of oxygen, and the release of carbon dioxide. The lack of electrolytes can cause serious health problems for pond fish. During periods of disease and stress, healthy gill function is disturbed. This can lead to loss of electrolytes and osmotic shock. Osmotic shock reduces the ability of the gills to take up oxygen and release carbon dioxide and ammonia. SUPERPOND Pond Salt reduces the risk of osmotic shock by replenishing natural electrolytes fish need.

SUPERPOND Pond Salt  can also be used to reduce the toxicity of nitrite to koi and gold fish. Nitrite (NO2-) enters the gills and prevents the blood from carrying oxygen, resulting in nitrite toxicity (methemoglobinemia). SUPERPOND Pond Salt will temporarily block the toxic effects of nitrite until water quality can be improved. This is a fairly common occurence in the spring following a winter of crowded conditions in a pond.

Many external parasitic infestations (Trichodina, Ichthyobodo, and Epistylis) and fungal infections can be eradicated with a short-term bath. Some state fishery departments use SuperPond Pond Salt to eradicate parasites from their hatchery raised fish and fry prior to release.

SUPERPOND Pond Salt  contains no artificial additives, sugar, or color like table salt. It is made from solar evaporated salt water, which contains the following beneficial electrolytes needed by freshwater fish: calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, and sodium chloride.

 Directions for Use:

Once added to the pond, salt does not evaporate and is not filtered out! After making the initial treatment with Pond Salt, add more salt only when making a water change. If, for example, you remove 50 gallons with a water change add only enough salt for 50 gallons.

Ponds without plants:
Add one 2 � cupfuls (728 g) for every 100 U.S. gallons (378 L) of pond water. Sprinkle the salt evenly around the perimeter of the pond. After one hour, measure the salt level with the Salt level Test Kit. The salt level should be 0.2%. Add a small amount of salt if necessary. Make a 10% to 20% water change to reduce the salt level.


Certain aquatic plants are sensitive to salt; use this lower salt level when plants are present. Add one 1 1/4 cupfuls (364 g) for every 100 U.S. gallons (378 L) of pond water. Sprinkle the salt evenly around the perimeter of the pond. After one hour, measure the salt level with the Salt level Test Kit. The salt level should be 0.1%. Add a small amount of salt if necessary. Make a 10% to 20% water change to reduce the salt level.

Disease treatment:
SUPERPOND Pond Salt  may be used as a short-term bath to treat external parasites (Tricodina, Ichthyobodo, or Epistylis). Using a clean plastic container, dissolve 2 � cups (370 g) for every 10 U.S. gallons (40 L) of water. Do not use tap water. Carefully place the infested fish in the salt bath (2.0 %) for 5 to 10 minutes then.
DO NOT leave the fish in the salt bath for longer than 10 minutes. Be sure to cover the bath container with netting or similar material to prevent fish from jumping out of the bath container. After 10 minutes, place the treated fish back into the pond. The salt bath may be repeated in 24 hours if necessary.

Disposal: Note: Careless disposal of salted water may kill plants, lawn, trees, etc. Do not pump pond water onto lawns, or around trees and gardens. Salt content in ponds containing fish may be used in amounts up to 1-3 lbs per 100 gallons of water depending upon species of fish. For use in ponds containing plants, use less than 1lb (approx. 1 1/4 cups) per 100 gallons of water.  

Note: There is a $20 extra charge for the spin top lid kit used for our buckets. Refills of Salt get 10% off Salt price as shown below, when empty container is returned.

ABOUT BACTERIA PRODUCTS

You may notice that the required amount of bacteria per gallon of pond water decreases as the size of the pond increases. You may also notice that bacteria products may treat only 16,000 gallons for a small fish pond, but up to 200,000 gallons for a different type of extremely large pond or lake. There are several reasons for such differences, but some easy to understand reasons for the higher dose requirements for small ponds are:
1. Small ponds are usually stocked with fish at a much higher rate per gallon of water. People want to see a lot of fish no matter what size pond they have.
2. Fish in small ponds are usually over fed and therefore the actual nutrients in the pond will almost always be higher.
3. Almost all of the biological surface area is in a filter in small ponds, whereas in a large pond or lake, there is a lot of area for bacterial to grow on outside of the filter.
4. Most large ponds or aquaculture facilities use additional air to support higher colonies of bacteria, and therefore the bacteria can multiply to a much higher level in large ponds.

For the reasons given above and some others, the recommended dose per gallon is higher for a small pond than for very large ponds, lakes, or aquaculture use. As an example, the label for Super Bugs Dry states that it requires 1 oz per 1000 gallons of pond water or in other words, a lb will treat 16,000 gallons. Please note that our explanation of maximum amount of water that can be treated says " up to 200,000 gallons" and the products technical data now says 5 lb treats up to 1,000,000 gallons. The manufacturer tells of a company in Taiwan that uses a couple of pounds of the Super Bugs Dry to treat millions of gallons of shrimp hatchery water. As you can see, dosages are really very hard to determine.

Basically, bacteria doubles every 15 hours when adequate food and nutrients are available. It is possible for a small amount of  bacteria to reach the same level over a long period of time, as 1 billion bacteria would over a short time, as long as the nutrients are available. In other words, dosage recommendations for the bacteria products are not so precise as to mean the either more or less would not work as well , but would rather accomplish the effect either faster or slower. All bacteria products should be accompanied with increased aeration and water flow.

All liquid bacteria products will last longer when kept cool and out of the direct sun. Lymnozyme must be kept refrigerated to assure long storage life.

All dosage recommendations assume warm summer water temperatures. Dosage levels must me increased by double or even triple when water temperature is low, ie. less than 60 degrees F.

  MICROBE LIFT OX  

 
 Microbelift OX is a solid peroxide compound, which breaks down in water to gradually release oxygen through a chemical reaction. This gradual release of oxygen is more suitable for the rate oxygen is utilized by the fish and other living organisms in the pond. Other oxygen release compounds (such as hydrogen peroxide) dissociate at a rate which exceeds the utilization rate  of the fish and other living organisms. As a result, much of the oxygen reacts chemically with organics or vents to the atmosphere.

New ! GREENEX

 

GREENEX is an all natural formula which breaks-down and lowers excess nutrient load in surface water. This is achieved through the power of a single family of friendly beneficial aerobic bacteria. These bacteria feed on the leading causes of microscopic and filamentous algae, i.e. phosphorus, nitrogen, nitrates, ammonia, and decomposing organic matter such as fallen leaves and grass cuttings. By reducing these and many other unwanted nutrients commonly found in ponds, lakes, canals, and reservoirs we are reestablishing a natural balance in the aquatic ecosystem. The resultant natural elimination of filamentous and microscopic algae will make these aquatic environments more attractive and healthier for both humans and wildlife. The result is clearer, safer, algae free water. Turns green water clear.

First dose should be twice the dose used for follow-up, or maintenance doses. Maintenance treatments can be applied every two weeks if desired to maintain clear conditions. Optimum ph range is between 6.5 and 8.5, and optimum temperature range is 55 deg F and 120 deg F.

Expect a black cloud in water for up to 36 hours while Greenex's voracious bacteria go to work in the water column. This material has a very long shelf life, essentially years. Does not harm plants or animals when used properly. Actually aids in plant growth.

 TEST KITS 

        AMMONIA is a toxic chemical produced by such things as fish waste, uneaten fish food, and decaying plants and insects. It is potentially harmful to both fish and plants; however, if detected early, it can be corrected before any damage occurs. Pond test strips are the fast, easy way to test the level of ammonia in your pond.

The PH test strips test for PH, BUFFERING CAPACITY, NITRATE AND NITRITES. A proper ph level will prevent the harmful effects of water that is either too acidic or too alkaline. An adequate buffering capacity level prevents sudden ph changes, which can be harmful to fish and plants. A proper nitrate level will promote plant growth while a higher level may lead to increased algae growth. High levels of nitrite can be dangerous to fish and cause rapid algae growth. All these test strip kits are a must in order to keep your pond safe.

BARLEY BALES
 

Highly effective when used with Barley Pellets below!

  Now you can promote a healthier eco-system for your pond by giving it a double shot Barley Bales, a technique which has been employed since the Middle Ages to naturally eliminate algae. Placed to float in your pond, or anchored and held under the water, or in your skimmer, the bales begin to decompose, and after approximately 2 months, give off hydrogen peroxide and enzymes which prevent and gets rid of most kinds of algae. Because of time to begin working, order and place in pond early in the spring. Best of all, it's simple to use and 1 bale treats a 2,000 gallon pond up to 1 full year. These small bales are easy to use and take up very little room in your pond.  Here are some other important features:   

* They're fully bio-degradable

* They're conveniently packaged

12-BARLB2 Covers up to 2000 gallon pond

  BIO-LYTE GRAVEL ZEOLITE/FILTER MEDIA   
 These new filter medias are possibly the best filter materials available. Our natural zeolite gravels have three unique properties. Because of its large void space, our gravel has a tremendous surface area. Some of this large surface area is within the pores and voids, while the rest is on the exterior surface. These two regions of high surface area combine to make one of the most compact media available for filters.

It's added ability to remove ammonia directly from pond water as its generated, prevents the ammonia cycle swings common to most ponds and bio-filters. The ammonia resulting from fish waste and other sources are the major contributing factor to pond fish disease and death. One ft3 of BIO-LYTE GRAVEL can remove more than 1 lb of ammonia before regeneration is necessary. When its ion exchange capability is depleted, BIO-LYTE GRAVEL is still working better as a bio filter media than most others! When depleted, or on a monthly or quarterly basis, simply valve out your filter, turn off pump, and add a solution of salt water. The salt water forces all of the accumulated ammonia out of the BIO-LYTE GRAVEL which is then discharged to drain. Backwash and rinse out filter, and then return to service (we recommend installing an air backwash manifold under the gravel or use of a garden hose & water jet to simplify backwashing).

BIO-LYTE GRAVEL has a weight of 60 lb/ft3, 50 % of the weight of pea gravel, making it light enough to handle easily. This light weight makes it easier to handle, backwash, and use in almost any container-even plastic drums, Rubbermaid stock tanks, or our LFT-3000 tubs. Try that with pea gravel or rock! We truly believe our BIO-LYTE GRAVEL to be the revolution in pond filters we've all been waiting for. Use it in your next filter to reduce it's size or replace the gravel in your existing filter to increase it's performance (up to double the performance of pea gravel).

Use BL-10, 10 lb ;hanging bags of BIO-LYTE GRAVEL to hang in pond or tank, or toss into filter to improve its performance. Use one or more bags for each 1500 gallons in pond. Each bag can absorb approx. 1/3 lb ammonia from your water. BIO-LYTE GRAVEL nylon weave bags have brass grommets and drawstrings with barrel locks. Remove periodically and recharge with salt as above (frequency depends on number of bags, how well your filter works, quantity of fish, etc.). Make this an important addition to your medicine chest!
