    I have been using this product for the last three years in a 8500 gallon two pond system with waterfall connected by a creek. Previously I used multiple liquid, high cost products and still had problems with large mounts of string algae. I added aerators and started using only API Pond-Zyme only and my maintenance has decreased by at least 60%. I highly recommend.

  • Sludge B Gone

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Every Spring at Pond start-up always dreaded the SLUDGE build-up and the constant cleaning of the Pump and Canister Filter Pads almost twice a day. Started using the Pond-Zyme and after the first week, along with the other Bacteria additive, it cut the amount of sludge debris in half! Now the water is cleaner and I'm back to the normal cleaning routine.

    Love this stuff. I was having to clean out the pond's filter 2x a day. After one dose, the pond is running beautifully!

  • Great for ponds, equally great for large goldfish tanks

    Goldfish and their Koi cousins - are just plain dirty! They'd be happy, living their lives in murky, muddy water - but we wouldn't get to see their beauty, and few people would want to keep a mucky mini pond with mostly invisible occupants. This stuff provides both barley and bacterial colonies for breaking down pond sludge, plus clarifying the water so you can actually SEE your beauties! Helpful after pond/tank vacuuming and water changes, this boosts biological activity in your filter system and substrate. This is a dry, powdery or crumbly material; my fish always eat some when added to the tank. I first saw this product being used in large ornamental Koi ponds; my own tank is 75 gallons Goldfish and their Koi cousins - are just plain dirty!

I first saw this product being used in large ornamental Koi ponds; my own tank is 75 gallons, and is easier to maintain for goldfish if I pretend it's a tiny pond, rather than a large tank. Very effective, and inexpensive for the amazing results it will produce in your pond/tank. … more
