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 40°F. (4°C.)

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: ½ (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 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
Large Ponds Approximately 5 lb. per every 1,000 gal. of pond water for 2-3 months depending on the load of debris or discoloration
