MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua XTreme is a convenient liquid, single-phase, full-function water conditioner that has been scientifically formulated for use in koi and goldfish ponds. MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua XTreme should be used when: conditioning new water for ponds; adding (or prior to adding) water, new fish or plants to ponds; and transporting koi and goldfish. It is very important to use MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua XTreme when adding water to a pond that contains chloramines. Conventional dechlorinators will detoxify the chlorine in the chloramines but do nothing to the ammonia released from the chloramines. MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua XTreme will detoxify both the chlorine and the ammonia in chloramines.
- Perform regular water changes to keep alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable.
- Use MICROBE-LIFT/Aqua XTreme as needed to eliminate and control ammonia at the regular dosage rate for each 1mg/L, or fraction thereof, of measured total ammonia for each 0.85 mg/L of measured total ammonia-nitrogen.
- Use a salicylate (indolphenol) type total ammonia test kit.
Please Note: Do not use with a permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatment. Nessler’s total ammonia test kits will give a false high or off scale reading. Winkler’s dissolved oxygen test will give a false low or zero reading.
Microbe-Lift/Aqua Xtreme label states “Please Note- Do not use with a permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatment…” This is due to the permanganate- or chlorite-based chemicals having the capacity to break down part of the polymerization process necessary to remove chlorine-ammonia-nitrite and heavy metals from your pond water.
*Wait 48 hours between the use of Microbe-Lift/Aqua Xtreme and the use of any Pond Fish Treatments containing ingredients you have doubts about. (i.e. – potassium permanganate, hydrochloric acid, etc)
