Beneficial Bacteria

Provides clean, clear and healthy water conditions and reduces pond maintenance. Effective at reducing fish waste, uneaten fish food, decaying plant matter and excess nutrients that cause algae.

Sludge and Muck Reducers

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.

Cold Water bacteria

Accelerates the decomposition of leaves and other organic matter during the fall and winter months. Will also jump start your pond to a healthier environment in the spring.

Lake Treatments

Specifically designed for large ponds and lakes. These biological treatments create a healthy environment for your pond, breaks down organic sludge and slime, reduces ammonia and nitrite levels and more.

Barley Products

Used for generations as an all-natural way to keep pond water clean and clear. Available in a variety of forms- bales, pellets, flakes, and liquid extract.

Algae Control

With fish waste, uneaten fish food, sunlight, and the right temperature, algae can quickly get out of control in your pond. Between pea soup green water to string algae in your waterfall, we have the treatments to get your pond back on track. The majority of these treatments will kill the algae for a quick fix, but they will not prevent regrowth. Once the algae is treated, use proactive products such as beneficial bacteria to reduce future growth.

Water Clarifiers & Defoamers

Quickly clears cloudy water. Works by causing suspended particles in pond water to clump together and fall to the pond bottom where they can be vacuumed or removed by filtration.

Water Conditioners & Dechlorinators

Instantly dechlorinate and detoxify your pond water. Dechlorinators and conditioner will remove and neutralize chlorine, destroy chloramines, and detoxify heavy metals making tap water safe for fish.

Salt

A general fish tonic made from evaporated sea water. Improves gill function, protects against nitrite toxicity & reduces stress by helping to maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in the body fluids of pond fish.

Mosquito Control

Kills developing mosquitoes before they become breeding, biting adults. Safe for fish, plants and animals.

Dosing System

Eliminate the guesswork and routine of adding water treatments to your pond, fountain, or water feature.The Aquascape Automatic Dosing System accurately and consistently applies your choice of water treatment.

Dyes and Tints

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 75°F (24°C).

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.

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.

API Pond Accu-Clear

Clears cloudy pond water fast in your water garden

Maintains crystal-clear pond water. Quickly clears cloudy pond water. Helps filters function more efficiently. Works by causing tiny suspended cloud particles in pond water to clump together. The clusters quickly fall to the bottom. Use Pond Zyme Plus or EcoFix along with Accu-Clear for incomparable pond cleanliness.

API Pond Accu-Clear Application Rates
1 teaspoon treats1/4 cup treats
50 gallons of pond water 600 gallons of pond water
Before using Accu-Clear, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration via a fountain, waterfall or aeration device. During hot summer months, pond water contains very little oxygen. In sunlight, algae and submerged plants produce oxygen, and in some cases may be the major source of oxygen in the pond. However, submerged plants and algae consume oxygen at night. Organic matter also consumes oxygen while decomposing. When organic matter is removed by the filter or settles to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided. Therefore, when using Accu-Clear during the warm summer months, adequate aeration is required to avoid fish death. Do not shut off pond pumps or aeration devices at night. Aeration must be provided for pond life at all times. When used as directed, Accu-Clear is non-toxic to fish and plants. If adequate aeration is provided, oxygen levels will not drop to harmful levels.

Clear Water Barley Straw Pond Treatment

Place bale on the surface of the pond, preferably near waterfall or filter outlet. Do not allow bales to sink to the bottom of the pond. If bale sinks, remove from pond for 24 hours to dry then put it back. Allow one month for the bale to become effective. Replace each bale after 6 months of use. For continuous treatment, after 5 months, place a new bale next to the old one. Then remove the oldest one at the 6 month mark. For best results keep barley straw bale floating on the pond year round.

Clear Water Barley Straw Pond Treatment Usage
Add to the area of the pond with the most circulation & water movement is greatest. The bale works better when kept off the bottom of the pond.
One package treats up to 2,000 gallons of water.
