API Fish Treatments

Treatment for Bacterial Infections. Melafix is an all-natural treatment, containing an extract of the tea tree, Melaleuca cajeputi. Treats bacterial infections – open wounds and abrasions, fin and tail rot, cloudy eye, mouth ‘fungus’ –  and promotes regrowth of damaged fin rays and tissue.

Water Treatments

Positive Bacteria. Microbe-Lift PL (Pond & Lagoon) is a water treatment that uses living microbes to eat decaying organic matter in your pond such as dead algae and fish waste. It also helps to convert ammonia and nitrites safely into plant food. The microbes colonize on the surface areas of your pond to keep the water clean, clear and visible. 

Pond Dye. Microbe-Lift Bio-Blue and Bio-Black will dye your pond water an opaque color to help block the sunshine from feeding into the algae. It is also used to make a reflecting pond.

Pond Defoamer. Microbe-Lift Pond Defoamer gets rid of unsightly foam fast, leaving pond water clean and clear. Persistent foaming can indicate a heavy concentration of undissolved organics. Partial water changes can improve water quality which will help reduce foaming.

Mosquito Control. Mosquito Dunks are a biological mosquito control. They contain Bti, a natural mosquito larvicide, which kills mosquito larvae, but is harmless to birds, fish, wildlife, and pets. Simply place a Dunk in any standing water to control mosquito larvae for up to 30 days. 

Polishing AC. Activated carbon can be considered another layer of filtration media, turning the normal 2-stage (biological & mechanical) process into an expanded 3-stage filtration process.
