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.

  • Removes deadly ionized ammonia and toxic un-ionized ammonia
  • Removes toxic nitrites and nitrates

  • 100% natural, NO CHEMICALS, safe for pets and wildlife
Question 1: How does Arctic Blend’s beneficial bacteria remove ammonia from frigid winter pond water when it’s a known fact that “nitrifying bacteria” which keeps ammonia and nitrites at zero does not perform in cold water?
Answer 1: Arctic Blend is not a “nitrifying bacteria”. Arctic Blend’s beneficial bacteria is formulated with billions of natural unique microbes that absorb the ammonia from your winter fish pond water. Then these microbes process the ammonia through their system, rendering the ammonia harmless to your fish. You never have the common “nitrifying bacteria nitrogen cycle” which is, high ammonia then high nitrites and at last, less toxic nitrates when using Arctic Blend. 

Question 2: Why should I worry about the ammonia in the winter months, my fish are not eating so they do not produce waste. No waste, no ammonia?
Answer 2: Your fish produce more ammonia by breathing than they do from their waste. So they are producing deadly ammonia all winter.
