Spring is a time of danger for fish, coming out of semi-dormancy after not eating for months. They will be in a weakened condition and their immune system will not be activated until water temperatures rise. Parasites on the other hand will become active much earlier, at lower temperatures.
The best protection against parasite infestation in spring, and fish deaths, will be a clean pond. Microbe-Lift has thankfully developed two products geared at cleaning the pond of organic leaf matter through the cold winter months. It is this organic layer that is so attractive to parasites.
By using Microbe Lift Autumn/Winter Prep and Microbe-Lift Spring/Summer Cleaner you will be evicting the dirty bugs from their happy home! The cellulase bacterial enzymes have but one job—leaves! And the psychrophilic (cold weather strain) bacteria has been developed to withstand cold temperatures and low light conditions, as under snow and ice!
It isn’t supposed to do the entire job for you, so clean the filter and pond before you settle in for the winter, then add the Microbe Lift Autumn/Winter Prep and let it take care of organic debris that collects through the long months ahead. Spring will be cleaner and safer! Add Microbe-Lift Spring/Summer Cleaner to finish it off.
