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.
