Microbe-Lift Sludge Away

Formulated for the removal of organic bottom solids that are slow to degrade, especially helpful in ponds that have a rock or gravel bottom or where vacuuming is impractical. As organic solids accumulate on the pond bottom, they begin to break down releasing toxic gasses. These gaseous by-products can endanger fish, marine life and plants. Microbe-Lift Sludge Away reduces and eliminates potential harmful gaseous compounds and helps clarify your pond water at the same time.

  • Organic and microbial based
  • Safe for fish, plants, pets and the environment

    Maturing A Pond Biologically and Chemically

    When a pond's ecosystem is mature and balanced, the water is usually clear and healthy for aquatic life. This maturation process is a function of the microbiological and chemical properties of the water.

    NATURAL CHEMICAL MATURATION - Microbe-Lift Barley Straw LIQUID & DRY formulations help to mature the pond with natural chemicals just as a pure mountain stream matures through the years by the introduction of natural breakdown products from trees, plants, etc. These natural breakdown products often include humic and fulvic acid and organic acids that have a natural ability to sequester, or tie up, inorganic compounds, so their concentrations in the pond don't get to levels that would unbalance the ponds ecosystem. These substances can also lead to natural purification of the pond through a slow release of hydrogen peroxide as they react with sunlight. The hydrogen peroxide is produced at levels that help purify the water while not having any adverse effects on desirable aquatic life. The sequestering, in conjunction with microbiological cycling, provides a stable natural ecosystem in your pond.

    BIOLOGICAL MATURATION The microbiological maturation process involves development of symbiotic populations of bacteria, which stabilize the critical organic and inorganic components of the pond. The microorganisms do this through their ability to promote "biogeochemical cycles" including carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous cycles - elements critical to all forms of aquatic life. By stabilizing these components, the bacteria prevent pollution of the pond. It can take some time to accomplish this "biological maturation" in a man-made pond and may never occur as the maturation process is constantly interrupted by certain pond practices like cleaning out the pond. The process can be accelerated significantly through the use of Microbe-Lift PL - a virtual "ecosystem in a bottle" - and mimics the complex interdependent populations in a mature pond.

    Microbe-Lift Algaway 5.4 Algaecide

    Compare to AlgaeFix, same active ingredient and 20% more concentrated.

    Algaecide For Ponds - Stops Algae Growth & Controls string algae!

    No more green water with ALGAWAY 5.4 Algaecide!

    It stops algae growth in ponds and can be applied to areas that contain fish and plants!

    For use in self-contained ornamental ponds and fountains without any outflow. For small ponds with heavy algae growth, clean the excess algae off the sides and ornaments before adding ALGAWAY 5.4 . This will reduce the amount of decaying organic matter.

    Fountains, Small Ponds with goldfish and koi - Treat only those fountains and ponds which will have no outflow after treatment. High water temperatures cause more rapid natural decay of dead algae which can cause fish distress. If animals are present clean out excess algae as stated above or use before temperature exceeds 75F (24C).

    CAUTIONS: In ponds, insure that water is well aerated via waterfall, fountain or other method to prevent fish loss. Aeration must be continuous. Not safe for use with snails, shrimp and other crustaceans or mollusks.

    Repeat dosage once per week for maintenance.

    Microbe-Lift NITE-OUT II

    Specially Formulated For Rapid Ammonia & Nitrite Reduction

    Microbe-Lift Nite Out II is designed specifically for pond waters that contain marine life. Its highly-specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures are specially formulated to eliminate ammonia via a natural biological process termed nitrification. The cultures contained in Microbe-Lift Nite Out II will establish, promote or stabilize and maintain nitrification in pond waters, eliminating the toxic effect of ammonia.

    Microbe-Lift Nite Out II liquid nitrifying bacteria contains select strains of Nitrosomonas, Nitrospira and Nitrobacter. Nitrosomonas convert ammonia to nitrite and Nitrobacter and Nitrospira convert nitrite to nitrate.

    Microbe-Lift Nite Out II comprises select microorganisms that are autotrophic-able to use carbon dioxide as the sole source of carbon-and are relatively slow growing, requiring specific conditions for optimum growth with typical cell division rates from 8 to 16 hours. Their performance and rate of growth are impacted by the environmental parameters required for nitrification.

    They are also highly oxygen-sensitive, requiring high dissolved oxygen levels (greater than 2 mg/L) to achieve maximum growth rates. Nitrite is produced by beneficial bacteria in the pond and the oxidation of harmful waste ammonia excreted by fish. Even though nitrite is not as toxic as ammonia, it is still very damaging to the health of fish.

    • Initiates nitrification
    • Promotes stable nitrification
    • Provides stable cold weather nitrification
    • Safe for use around plants and animals

    Microbe-Lift Pond Salt Crystals

    Will help maintain a healthy pond environment and reduce the threat of parasitic disease in pond water.

    Microbe-Lift Pond Salt Crystals added to your pond water can be effective in helping to maintain a healthy fish environment and, in proper dosages, has proven to be helpful in reducing the threat of parasitic infestations in the pond.

    Microbe-Lift Pond Salt Crystals will temporarily block the toxic effects of nitrite, and by initiating the production of a thicker slime coat on the fish's body surface, helps to promote a stronger immune system and reduce stress.

    Caution - Do not overdose. When adding salt to ponds that contain aquatic plants, be especially careful in monitoring salt concentration as salt can be a toxic effect on certain plants. Before adding salt to your pond, remove any zeolite products being used.

    Directions - Salt will not evaporate from your pond. After testing your pond water with a hydrometer, you can add salt with your regular water changes. We recommend mixing salt and pond water in a bucket, and then spreading the slurry around the perimeter of your pond. Be careful to avoid direct contact with pond plants.

    Microbe-Lift Pond Salt Crystals Dosage
    For Small Ponds: (120g) per 10 gal. (38L) of pond water
    For Large Ponds: 5 cups (1.13 kg) per 100 gal. (378L) of pond water
    For Stress Reduction: Use Microbe-Lift Therapeutic Salt For Quarantine Tanks containing added electrolytes and Allantoin, which accelerates wound and fin healing.

    Microbe-Lift Concentrated Barley Straw Extract Plus Peat

    All the Benefits of Concentrated Barley Straw Extract PLUS Added Liquid Peat To Help Maintain An Ideal pH in Alkaline Ponds!

    Maturing A Pond Biologically and Chemically

    When a pond's ecosystem is mature and balanced, the water is usually clear and healthy for aquatic life. This maturation process is a function of the microbiological and chemical properties of the water.

    NATURAL CHEMICAL MATURATION Microbe-Lift Barley Straw LIQUID & DRY formulations help to mature the pond with natural chemicals just as a pure mountain stream matures through the years by the introduction of natural breakdown products from trees, plants, etc. These natural breakdown products often include humic and fulvic acid and organic acids that have a natural ability to sequester, or tie up, inorganic compounds, so their concentrations in the pond don't get to levels that would unbalance the ponds ecosystem. These substances can also lead to natural purification of the pond through a slow release of hydrogen peroxide as they react with sunlight. The hydrogen peroxide is produced at levels that help purify the water while not having any adverse effects on desirable aquatic life. The sequestering, in conjunction with microbiological cycling, provides a stable natural ecosystem in your pond.

    BIOLOGICAL MATURATION The microbiological maturation process involves development of symbiotic populations of bacteria, which stabilize the critical organic and inorganic components of the pond. The microorganisms do this through their ability to promote "biogeochemical cycles" - including carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous cycles - elements critical to all forms of aquatic life. By stabilizing these components, the bacteria prevent pollution of the pond. It can take some time to accomplish this "biological maturation" in a man-made pond and may never occur as the maturation process is constantly interrupted by certain pond practices like cleaning out the pond. The process can be accelerated significantly through the use of Microbe-Lift PL - a virtual "ecosystem in a bottle" - and mimics the complex interdependent populations in a mature pond.

    Microbe-Lift Broad Spectrum Disease Treatment

    Formulated with Malachite Green & Formalin

    Use for disease caused by Ichthyophithirius (Ich), Chilodonella, Costia, Oodinium, Trichodina and fungal infections

    MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the preeminent broad spectrum malachite green and formalin treatment. It is formulated differently than any other malachite green and formalin mix.

    Malachite green and formalin are two drugs that are more effective and less toxic in combination than when used individually. This is the definition of synergism. What makes MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT the preeminent product in this field is the fact that it is formulated with malachite green chloride, instead of the more toxic oxalate salt. As with any malachite green and formalin treatment, do NOT use with other medications.

    MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the safest and most effective treatment for the control of diseases caused by Ichthyophithirius (Ich), Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections.

    MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is the ONLY malachite green and formalin treatment that can be used in water temperatures as low as 50F, thus allowing treatment in early Spring and late Fall.

    MICROBE-LIFT/BSDT is less toxic to koi and goldfish than any other malachite green and formalin product on the market.

    Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets

    Made with 100% Natural and organic ingredients, this product improves water quality, fish and plant health. Barley Straw Pellets are the most convenient form of barley today. They should be introduced preferably where water is flowing and the depth is less than three feet. You may also place some in your filter media box. You may start your application any time of the year.

    Enriched with peat and humic acid, this revolutionary formula works faster & better with Less Mess & Cost and is easier to apply than bales, pillows and pads!

    • Matures pond water chemistry, Buffers pH,Works year round
    • Disperses quickly by simple broadcast of pellets into the pond or packing in a porous fabric sock and suspending in pond or available chamber in skimmer or filter
    • Releases decomposition by-products immediately
    • Recommended for use with all Microbe-Lift bacterial and enzymatic pond products
    • Provides a slow steady release of beneficial ingredients through natural activity

    Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment! Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. Manufactured using an exclusive proprietary pelleting process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn and other binders, the barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure the quality of these essential ingredients.

    Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets works in much the same way as barley straw...only faster! Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets in Barley Straw Pellets, only the breakdown compounds are released faster: dispersing equally throughout the water; reacting photo chemically with sunlight; and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide - an oxidizing agent that also helps to keep the water clear - naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets are rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds!

    Please note: Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets will leave a residue on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as Microbe-Lift Sludge Away will digest this organic residual.

    MICROBE-LIFT Activated Carbon

    Removes Organic Pollutants, Discoloration and Odors in Ponds and Water Gardens. Activated Coal-Based Carbon Provides Optimal Pore Structure for Fast Absorption of Contaminants.

    MICROBE-LIFT/ACTIVATED CARBON maximizes the removal of contaminants, helping to keep water clean and clear. MICROBE-LIFT/ACTIVATED CARBON is a coal-based carbon for use in decorative ponds and water gardens. Fast-acting and highly-activated, it can be used in all types of filters to aggressively eliminate: odors, discoloration caused by tannins from decayed leaves (tea colored water), organic debris pollutants, pesticides, detergents and toxins, as well as medications, without releasing phosphates or causing unwanted growth. Activated carbon attracts pollutants which "stick" to it like a magnet. Carbon cannot be reactivated like zeolite. Activated carbon can remove some chlorine and chloramines from city tap water. The amount of removal is based on the amount of chlorine/chloramines in the water and the amount of carbon used.

    Caution

    Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush eyes thoroughly with cold water.

    Directions

    Place desired amount of MICROBE-LIFT/ACTIVATED CARBON into a media bag. Rinse in cold running water as carbon is characteristically dusty. Position the media bag for maximum water flow through the carbon. It is recommended that you test your water weekly. Use MICROBE-LIFT TEST STRIPS.

    Microbe-Lift Activated Carbon Dosage
    Small Ponds 1lb. per 200 gal. of pond water for 2-3 months
    Medium Ponds 2-3 lb. per 500 gal. of pond water for 2-3 months
