Water Treatments >> NT Labs Pond Care




NT Labs Antifoam

NT Labs Antifoam

Unsightly foam and froth present on the surface of ponds is due to an excess of protein in the water. The more protein present the larger the amount of foam.

The actions of NT Labs Antifoam will break down the froth, but it will not get rid of the protein in the water. Antifoam is non toxic and can be used daily if necessary.

If there is a lot of foam constantly present, the efficiency of the biological filtration system should be checked by using Ammonia and Nitrite test kits and the amount of food fed should be reduced.

 NT Labs Antifoam 125 ml treats 222,800 litres (50,000 gallons)

One last thing you may want to consider using a Protein Skimmer for a long term solution.

NT Labs Chlor Go

NT Labs Chlor Go

Freshly drawn tap water contains chlorine and chloramines, which is added to the water by the water authorities to disinfect and prevent contamination by bacteria and other pathogenic agents. Unfortunately both these compounds are extremely toxic to our koi, causing panic and intense gill irritation amongst other symptoms.

Thus when ever tap water is added to the pond, i.e during a water change the chlorine and chloramines must be removed. NT Labs Chlor Go contains compounds that not only remove the chlorine and chloramines, but also remove any heavy metals that are frequently present at low levels in tap water.

250 ml treats 9000 litres (2000 gallons)

If you are performing large and regular water changes you will find that a lot of NT Labs Chlor Go is being used.

Using NT Labs Chlor Go is the ideal water care solution and avoids putting fish in any unecessary danger from these potentially toxic substances. NT Labs Chlor Go is also a great copper remover  has a calming effect on fish being transported, it should always be used in transportation bags and isolation tanks regardless of whether or not tap water has been used.

It may be better to consider filtering your tap water through one of our purifiers shown below which will absorb these toxic compounds and keep your fish safe.

Maintaining a general hardness of water of at least 8 degrees of hardness helps to keep the biological processes working properly thus avoiding stagnation and acidification.

The calcium and magnesium forming the general hardness of water are essential for the proper growth of plants and aquatic micro-organisms which consume unicellular algae and help to keep the water clear.

NT Labs Mediclay

NT Labs Mediclay

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

NT Labs Mediclay 400 grams treats 91,000 litres (20,000 gallons)

2 kg treats 455,000 litres (100,000 gallons)

NT Labs Pond Buffer KH Up

NT Labs Pond Buffer KH Up

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 carbonate hardness.
