NT Labs Mediclay is a Pure High grade ultra fine powered montmorillonite revitaliser clay. NT Labs Mediclay controls waste build up of bacteria and algae pollutants in favour of nitrifiers.
The negative electrostatic charge on the particles of the powder attract the positively charged particles of algae and other suspended matter in the water forming larger clumps which are taken away by the filter. The water becomes crystal clear.
Removal of suspended debris and algae improves the health and appetite of the fish in the pond. Also very good for removing D.O.C.
Dissolved Organic Carbon is a term that covers a multitude of organic (carbon compounds created by life) materials which end up dissolved in water produced by incomplete digestion of foods and decomposition of plant life.
A superior alternative to removing D.O.C. out of water is fine grade montmorrilonite clay found in NT labs Koi Care Mediclay.
Nt Labs Mediclay acts as an electro-chemical - adsorbent drawing in the charged compounds onto the molecules of aluminosilicate compounds that make up the clay, this material when used properly dissipates throughout the water in a cloud and then is drawn to the filter or bottom drain taking with it the chemical waste attached by the charge. This process is called tyndalisation and results in a return of a sparkle and depth of clarity.
It has the beneficial side effect of adding trace elements that are of benefit to koi which are generally used to rooting around on muddy pond bottoms and so the clay is a dietary benefit
