Specially formulated for all biological Beadfilters.Like most types of mechanical/biological filters, bead filters rely on the use of a media that provides a high surface area/volume ratio. This allows for support of the necessary amount of biomass, in the form of a biofilm, to properly remove organic and inorganic waste from the water, making it suitable for fish and other normal aquati
Kusuri Biobalance "Natural non chemical buffer" is a fine powdered product that will improve alkalinity in pond / tank water providing a natural stabilizing effect on the pH of water.
Kusuri Biobalance is ideal for use in low alkaline soft water conditions (extremely low levels of hardness are also know to be detrimental to the osmosis & regulatory system of fish).
PURE+ Filter Start Gel for pond filtersPURE+ Filter Start Gel is a live, concentrated bacteria culture for use in new pond filters. The gel based solution will stick to the filter media, allowing the nitrifying bacteria it contains to rapidly colonise your filter. Once the filter media has been coated with PURE+ Filter Start Gel, the beneficial bacteria within the gel will speed up the m
The buffer capacity of pond water is the ability of pond water to maintain the pH at the correct level for the survival of your fish. The metabolism of fish in the pond tends to use up KH buffer and if this is not replaced can lead to sudden pH crash causing death of fish, frequently at night.
We advise to test KH regularly with a KH Test Kit and maintain the KH level above 6 degrees c
Our biggest challenge as fish keepers is to create a ‘natural’ healthy environment in our ponds, where the correct balance of beneficial bacteria are allowed to develop and flourish.
The pond and filters in time, will mature to give a balanced eco-system. If this is not achieved, toxic waste that the fish produce will not be effectively removed and will cause stress to the fish and weaken their immune system.
This will lead to a reduction in their ability to fight off potential health problems. Growth and development are also adversely affected and in severe cases, fish losses will occur.
Our ponds are often overstocked, over fed and are treated with aggressive chemicals to kill parasites, fungal or bacterial infections. All of these have a detrimental effect on the balance of bacteria we are trying to maintain in our filters. Even a week on holiday with reduced feeding can cause the bacteria colony to die back.
To assist our own eco-system, we can introduce and supplement the correct beneficial bacteria into our system to accelerate and maintain this natural balancing process. This in turn will lead to clear, well-balanced water and healthier fish. At Koi Carp we are constantly asked for advice on which bacterial and supplement type products we use on our ponds.
We decided to research your needs and find products, that will set new standards for quality and performance. If you need any assistance or advice, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be pleased to help.
Treating your water can be confusing, we have lots of different treatments to keep your pond in the very best of condition.
