BIO-ACCELLERATOR - ( THE MICRO GENETIC DIFFERENCE )
Our BACTERIA is a living system of catalytic bacteria and biological activators with accelerators for use in the Aqua-Culture industry. This Bacteria is unlike any product currently available in the market place today in product activity, ease of application, cost and end results. This Bacteria is the Micro Genetic difference that can offset the cost of production and increase the output of any installation by becoming a valuable tool for stabilizing biological dependent systems. By creating nitrification cycles, breaking down organic material and fecal wastes controlling fluctuating oxygen levels, reducing nitrogen nutrients, reducing scum and sludge buildup and in the aiding of the control of off-flavor in food fish and green water. This Living Bacteria is an integral part of the fish system.
This Living Bacteria consists of air-dried, primary, total fermentation products which are culture blends of beneficial bacteria and fungi, because of their ability of produce high concentrations of hydrolytic enzymes and desirable fermentation factors such as micro-nutrients, unidentified digestive factors, etc. They are grown on a sterilized residues of a fermentation process, hence the designation PRIMARY TOTAL means that the entire growth medium is harvested not just the cells, enzymes and fermentation products that have been produced. One might ask, “Why add a combination enzyme along with microbial culture products to treat a system?” First it is more economical to harvest the total culture with its entire complement of degradative enzymes than it is to separate the enzymes from the microbes and go through an expensive procedure for purifying these enzymes. Secondly, and most important, there is the fact that enzymes-culture products have a capability as a microbial seed with all the bacteria contained in such products to multiply within the system. As these specific microorganisms in the product multiply in the system, they continue to produce more degradative enzymes, thus multiplying the original products effectiveness in the system.
Oxygen- the third most plentiful element on the Earth-is arguable one of the most important. 90% of the mass of water is composed of oxygen, and all living things, with the exception of anaerobic organisms, require it to survive. Yet, despite its importance, many pond owners take oxygen for granted. By better understanding the relationship between oxygen and ponds, you can avoid many health and water quality problems in your setup down the road.
WHEN OXYGEN MEETS WATER
Oxygen is introduced to water three different ways; through surface gas exchange with the atmosphere, via external aeration tools such as filters or aerators, and lastly, as a product of photosynthesis. When you test your water’s oxygen content, what you are actually testing is how much oxygen gas has been dissolved in your water. If the dissolved oxygen concentration is too low, the water will try to gain oxygen via diffusion from the atmosphere. Likewise, if there is a higher concentration of dissolved oxygen present in the water, some dissolved oxygen will be diffused out and back into the atmosphere. For optimal oxygen content, freshwater should measure about 8.3 ppm of oxygen.
HOW OXYGEN IS USED IN WATER
Maintaining an optimal dissolved oxygen concentration is key to healthy water and inhabitants. Fish use oxygen for respiration, and cannot survive if oxygen levels drop below 2 ppm. Plants, on the other hand, use oxygen to break down carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, although unlike fish, they give some of that oxygen back to the water.
In addition to fish and plants, there are numerous things that consume dissolved oxygen in water. Nitrifying bacteria, for example, use oxygen when feeding on organic waste products, which is why overpopulation of a water system is often a contributing factor to poor water quality and inhabitant health’ with all of the bacteria using oxygen to break down the added waste, there simply isn’t enough oxygen to go around for fish and plants.
IMPROVE OXYGEN LEVELS
You can do numerous things to increase oxygen levels in your pond if you notice problems, such as fish gasping at the surface or foul odors. Something as simple as a water change introduces fresh, oxygen-laden water into your pond while reducing oxygen-depleted wastewater. Regularly cleaning filter systems will help improve water flow and maintain a balanced population of beneficial bacteria needed to break down ammonia and nitrite, without directly competing with fish for vital oxygen. Increasing the amount of plants in your pond will add oxygen-creating flora to your ecosystem. Furthermore, regularly test using an oxygen test kit to determine if additional aeration, in the form of filters or aerators, is needed.
