Keep your pond in optimal health with this organic conditioner, comprised of beneficial bacteria, plant extracts, enzyme blends, and natural food-grade dyes. Along with creating clearer ponds, it also improves water quality for fish and helps to increase livestock weight gain. The bacteria and enzymes feed on excess nutrients, such as fish droppings, runoff, pond sludge, and phosphates. The food dye provides shade and slows the effects of sunlight. This conditioner is not a pesticide and it doesn't kill living matter. The fall/winter conditioner, to be used before the winter freeze, is formulated with a preservative that adds to the longevity and productivity of the bacteria and enzymes, enabling the microbes to continue consuming debris, runoff, and decaying matter. It provides a healthy habitat for all living things throughout the winter months, and it reduces foul odors and off-gassing in the spring.
