Any bacterial product is formulated to benefit or aid the overall ecosystem already found in the pond. Bacterial products are not a quick fix, but an overall solution to water quality. Therefore problems will disappear over time as the bacteria becomes established. We recommend adding bacterial products weekly, this routine will quickly pay off with long-term success and a reduction in overall problems. Water quality issues can be blamed for most water or for fish-related problems. Maintaining a balanced ecosystem is the key to a healthy pond.
