is said the secret to Japanese healthy,
colorful koi is the clay mud in which they
are raised. MICROBE-LIFT/CMC comes from
one of the highest calcium clay deposits
in the world. Calcium based clay may actually
help your pond’s water 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, as
well as vinyl, cement and rubber ponds do
not have any nutrients on their bottom.
In the wild, carp actually use mud to get
many of their micronutrients and minerals.
MICROCROBE-LIFT/CMC has a negative electric
charge which will bind the clay particles
to positively charged toxins in the water.
The clay acts as a natural flocculent and
the particles that are bound up are filtered
out of the
pond. MICROBE-LIFT/CMC is not only a nutrient
source for koi, it will also “polish”
your pond water. The clay can actually help
make pond water sparkling clean (polishing).
The temperature band for
koi is 62°
F. - 84°
F. At 50°
F, it will take about a week for koi to
digest food. At 45°
F, digestion stops. At 60°
F, it takes about a day, at 70°
F. food will pass thru in 2 hours. At 70°
F. - 75°
F. koi will have twice the time to digest
their food if the clay is added in sufficient
