belayasova: please, someone tell me what time of the day is better for adding bacteria into the pond?? i have read somewhere that it matters, but can't remember where and what.. Thank you!!
klmgroupia: Sorry ran out of characters to work with. For really small ponds there's nothing wrong with using aquarium products. These are more suited to the gallons your working with. Simply look for a beneficial bacteria for fish tanks or aquariums and try that.
klmgroupia: There is a 500 gallon packet option and this would work as well in that small of a pond. Generally the beneficial bacteria is very safe and you can use it safely. We actually tested a 2500 gallon packet in an 80 gallon fish tank once and it was fine. In a sense it's self regulating. The bacteria that can find nutrients to consume will run through it's life cycle...those that can't simply die off. Always use any bacteria with good aeration. Or if you wish, look for an aquarium product.
Mily Hostetler: Thank you. We have a small pond (about 80 gallons) we are having problem keeping the water clear also reducing turtle waste. So we take him out every time he is going to be fed. For this size pond and to reduce algae and waste the recommended product will be the 2500 Dispenser System? This product is described as good for ponds from 100 gallons up to 2500 gallons. How can I make sure the doses will be correct for my 80 gallons pond? Is this the right product for our pond? Thank you
klmgroupia: Hi Mily...yes, it would be fine for turtles and all wildlife and fish. Thanks for the question!
Mily Hostetler: Hi. Thank you so much for this information. Is this product also beneficial for turtle ponds?
Alex Ross: I'm glad I relocated your videos as I used your product (PondBiotix SP) last year with great success and satisfaction and am ordering again for this season!
klmgroupia: Hi Vic,
No, sorry I don't. I might suggest visiting koivet.com and see what they might recommend.
Good luck with things...
