Effective Natural Algae Control
AQUAPLANCTON is safe for fish, pets and plants and is the all natural solution to the elimination of pond algae, string algae and blanket weed from ponds, lakes, rivers and streams.
What is AQUAPLANCTON?
AQUAPLANCTON is a naturally mined mineral which eliminates algae.
Pond owners are a lot more aware of the environment these days and welcome this natural alternative to the use of manufactured chemicals. Aquaplancton has been enthusiastically received because it is an entirely natural, mined mineral that works with nature which has to be better than using manufactured chemicals.
It’s the calcite outer scales of the fossilized Aquaplancton that are beneficial to ponds. These are called coccoliths. They act as a support and habitat for the beneficial aerobic bacteria in the pond. It's the aerobic bacteria that consume the sludge and starve blanket weed of its nutrition causing it to die out naturally.
When you use AQUAPLANCTON you are working with nature. You should see results in 7-10 days but it may take longer but rest assured AQUAPLANCTON will eradicate algae and restore the health of your pond, river or lake. Manufactured chemicals work far faster but in killing the algae they also eradicate the good bacteria that is essential for the long term health of your pond.
How much will I need?
Please calculate the area of water to be treated. Depth is not important. You will need about one pound for every 10 square feet of water area to be treated.
For a pond 6 feet by 7 that's 42 square feet and you would need just over four pounds so we suggest a 5 pound bag for $39 including postage and handling. A pond 10 feet by 9 feet comes to 90 square feet and you would need around 9 pounds so we would suggest a ten pound bag at $69 including postage and packing.
We also have 25 and 55 pound bags. Please contact us for larger quantities - details on the contact page.
Please remember that AQUAPLANCTON is Natural Algae Control
