Why Use Bacteria in Ponds

Why do you want beneficial bacteria in your pond? Well the bacteria's job in a backyard pond ecosystem is to convert waste (such as fish waste) and dead debris (leaves/sticks) into usable nutrients by completing the nitrogen cycle. Helping in sludge removal.

If your pond was designed to be a living ecosystem and was correctly engineered...why do you need to add beneficial bacteria? Well, adding bacteria to your water garden will help shorten its natural process in order to make the enclosed ecosystem safe for fish as soon as possible and give you a better looking pond with clearer and cleaner water.

Another reason is that most people feed their koi fish too much and this creates excess fish waste that loads the pond with nutrients that make the water quality suffer. With regular additions of beneficial bacteria your pond will be able to convert more of the excess nutrients and the debris will not rot inside the pond.

The Difference Between Liquid and Dry Beneficial Pond Bacteria Treatments

Both beneficial pond bacteria work the same way but liquid bacteria is better than dry bacteria when jump starting a new pond that was just built or when a pond is overstocked with fish and ammonia is a problem. Using the dry bacteria for routine water treatments will give you good results and save you some money over liquid bacteria. It just takes a little longer to get going then liquid beneficial bacteria. Which is why we recommend using the liquid bacteria first and then switching to the dry beneficial bacteria for ponds.
