7 Reasons Why Your Pond NEEDS Clinofish!
1. It reduces fish mortality rates
The waste produced by fish and decaying matter can quickly build up deadly ammonia levels if left unchecked. Moderate amounts of ammonia in an established pond can kill the fish that live in it. Clinofish actively removes ammonia from the water by a process called ion-exchange. This allows for more fish stocks in a smaller volume of water.
2. It dramatically improves pond water clarity
Unlike ordinary filter sand, the surfaces of Clinofish particles are not smooth. Clinofish particles attract and trap extremely fine dirt particles and algae directly onto their surfaces and not just between the grains like ordinary sand. You should notice a considerable difference to the water clarity after just one day of use.
3. It eliminates excess algae
Ammonia is one of the main food sources for algae. Clinofish removes this food source (ammonia) by a process called ion-exchange. Clinofish scavenges and holds onto the ammonium ions within it's crystaline structure. In short, no more ammonia means less algae!
4. It is the ideal substrate for biological filters
The nitrogen cycle is an essential part of sucessful fish ponds. In this process, ammonia is converted to nitrites and nitrates by beneficial bacterial colonies called nitrosomanas and nitrobacter. Due to it rough and porous suface, Clinofish is the ideal substrate for these biological filters to thrive.
5. You do your part to help the environment
Clinofish is a 100% natural mineral. This mineral is used in industry as a pollution cleanup material. When it is time to replace the Clinofish in your pond filter, simply spread your old ammonia-loaded Clinofish onto your lawn and watch your grass grow! Used Clinofish acts as the perfect slow release fertilizer for your lawn and flower beds! Best of all, it is completely natural!
6. It removes toxic heavy metals from the water
Not only does Clinofish remove ammonia from pond water, it also removes highly toxic heavy metals such as lead as well as some of the most dangerous radionuclides like Caesium and Strontium.
7. It can be used over again
You can regenerate Clinofish. Simply turn off your pump, remove filter top, drain out all the water, remove the Clinofish from the filter tank and place it in a large bath or trough. Add a solution of brine (10% salt solution or 1kg rock salt per 10 litres water) over the Clinofish filter media so that the Clinofish is fully submerged in the salt solution.Leave this over night to remove all the absorbed ammonia from the Clinofish structure.
