Microbe-Lift Pond Bacterial Balancer is a spore-based blend of Bacillus species. These aerobic heterotraphs (organic degraders) provide the ability to quickly establish populations necessary for breaking down organic waste from fish, waterfowl, plants and other aquatic life in your pond and aid in quickly establishing a functional population in your pond's filter.
As a result, Microbe-Lift Pond Bacterial Balancer helps to keep water clean and control build-up of sludge or bottom solids. It also helps to establish denitrification- the biological conversion of nitrate to nitrogen gas- which bubbles harmlessly out of your pond, reducing the availability of soluble nitrogen which can stimulate unwanted growth in your pond.
Ecological Laboratories offers the highest quality bacterial count and the highest treatment per oz. of any commercial spore based bacterial product available today.
The following strains are contained in this formulation:
- Bacillus subtilis,
- Bacillus mojavensis,
- Bacillus megaterium,
- Bacillus licheniformis,
- Bacillus pumilus, and
- Bacillus amyloliquefaciens.
