Fall & Winter Bacteria

Microbe-Lift Autumn/Winter Prep

Specially Formulated for Pond Winterization. Microbe-Lift A/P helps accelerate the decomposition of leaves, scum sediment, and other organic matter during the fall and winter months. Microbe-Lift/AP will also jump start your pond to a healthier environment in the spring.

Microbe-Lift A/P is a two-part system of liquid bacteria and dry, water soluble packets containing a blend of cellulase enzymes, cellulase-producing bacteria and a cold weather bacteria. The cellulase enzymes, along with the cellulase-producing bacteria, are the key to accelerating the breakdown of leaves, organic sediment and sludge all winter long. The cold weather bacteria and liquid bacteria take care of the initial breakdown by-products.

Continues to provide sustained biological activity even in water temperatures under 40F. (4C.)

Aquascape Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria

Aquascape Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria contains 7 pure strains of concentrated beneficial bacteria that work quickly cleaning and balancing your water garden. This Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria works at temperatures below 50F or 10C. Water gardens are enclosed ecosystems, which sometimes factors like fish load, uneaten fish food, organics such as leaves, sludge and unwanted debris may disrupt the balance. Aquascape Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria contains a specific combination of bacteria that are most effective at doing two jobs- reducing organic material such as leaves and pond sludge and reducing ammonia, nitrite and excess nutrients such as phosphate that are known to cause poor water quality and unsightly water conditions.
