Every pond and water garden needs beneficial bacteria for the nitrogen cycle to run smoothly and efficiently. The nitrogen cycle in a koi pond is the process of breaking down fish waste, toxic compounds, and other debris by good bacteria. It is a natural process which occurs in well-balanced aquatic environments such as large ponds and lakes. The nitrogen cycle is responsible for the biological filtration within every aquatic system.
Naturally, every pond owner strives to get good bacteria growing quickly in the springtime. It is necessary to provide effective nitrification in the pond environment for our pet fish. However, rapid colonization is often slow because good bacteria growth is usually hindered by cold water and drastic swings in the atmospheric temperature. To combat these elements we suggest the use of our Kloubec Koi Friendly Bacteria.

Application Rates/Directions: 1 oz per 1000 gallons. Apply product near the pump or in front of skimmer to allow adequate dispersion through the filtration system. In new ponds or springtime startup, apply daily for the first two weeks of filter operation. Continue administering at least 2-4 times per month thereafter as part of ongoing preventive maintenance. For optimum results begin applications when water temperature rises to 45°F. In extremely poor water conditions treatment can be safely increased to 3 oz. per gallon.
