    100% Natural Formulation For Pond Clarity & Koi Health, Growth & Color

    It is said the secret to healthy, colorful, Japanese koi is the clay mud in which they are raised. MICROBE-LIFT/Calcium Montmorillonite Clay comes from one of the highest calcium clay deposits in the world. Calcium based clay may help your pond water to produce some of the healthiest and deep colored koi you've ever raised (or seen)! The koi's markings will become brighter and more dominant. Plastic pre-formed ponds, as well as vinyl, cement and rubber ponds, do not have any nutrients on their bottom. In the wild, carp use mud to get many of their micronutrients and minerals. MICROBE-LIFT/Calcium Montmorillonite Clay has a negative electric charge which will bind the clay particles to positively charged toxins in the water. MICROBE-LIFT/Calcium Montmorillonite Clay is not only a nutrient source for koi, it will also "polish" your pond water. The clay acts as a natural flocculent and the particles that are bound up are filtered out of the pond. The clay can help make pond water sparkling clean (polishing). Clay is used in ponds to achieve many goals:
    • Provides fish nutrition through mineral ingestion
    • Improves fish color
    • Detoxifies and clarifies pond water (polishing)

    For Maximum Pond Clarity Plus Enzymes, Barley Straw, Humates & Peat

    This proprietary formulation of dry bacteria has a big PLUS - four additional natural ingredients! The humates provide humic acid which have a natural ability to sequester (tie up) inorganic compounds. Therefore, their concentrations in the pond don't reach levels that would imbalance the pond's ecosystem. The peat helps to buffer the pH of the pond water.

    The Differences Between MICROBE-LIFT/PL & MICROBE-LIFT/TAC

    Since Ecological Laboratories is the producer of the most popular biological pond clarifier on the market, there will inevitably be questions about the differences between the two products and why one would be selected over the other.  Here is a list of the basic differences with the features and benefits of those notable differences:
    1. MICROBE-LIFT/TAC does not have photosynthetic bacteria, which is one of the keys to the performance of MICROBE-LIFT/PL and what sets it above all other biological products for ponds. Unfortunately, no one has been successful to this point at preserving photosynthetic cultures in dry form. These photosynthetic bacteria are a valuable source of MICROBE-LIFT/PL's ability to clarify water and are capable of tapping into a potent source of energy to do this-the sun.  Many of these photosynthetic bacteria are also potent detoxifiers of water.
    2. The organisms in MICROBE-LIFT/TAC are not grown together in the same container, as the MICROBE-LIFT/PL is. As a result, you don't get the same "ecosystem in a bottle" that you get with the MICROBE-LIFT/PL, and as a result, not quite the same ability to ecologically balance your pond.
    3. The MICROBE-LIFT/TAC has powdered activated carbon which is well known for its abilities to clarify water by providing a point surface for bacteria to grow on. It then acts as a weighting agent to help these bacteria settle to the bottom, thus removing turbidity associated with dispersed bacteria. The carbon also acts as a detoxifier by adsorbing micro amounts of toxic materials; i.e. pesticides that can make their way into a pond.
    4. MICROBE-LIFT/TAC also has sodium bicarbonate-a buffer that can help stabilize the pH.
    5. MICROBE-LIFT/TAC has sea salt that helps to induce a protective slime layer on fish.
    6. MICROBE-LIFT/TAC dry formulation has no odor.
    While MICROBE-LIFT/PL has become the #1 pond clarifier asked for by brand name, there have been, and will always be, people who prefer products in a dry powder form.  Because there are opportunities to formulate certain dry components into a dry product that would not be practical to mix into a liquid, Ecological Laboratories has developed MICROBE-LIFT/TAC.
