MICROBE-LIFT/NITE-OUT II is designed specifically for pond waters that contain marine life. Its highly specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures is specially formulated to eliminate ammonia via a natural biological process termed nitrification. Remains active to 4°C! (Best results from 13°C and up).
The cultures contained in MICROBE-LIFT/NITE-OUT II will establish, promote or stabilize and maintain nitrification in pond waters, eliminating the toxic effect of ammonia. MICROBE-LIFT/NITE-OUT II liquid nitrifying bacteria contains select strains of Nitroso-monas, Nitrospira and Nitrobacter. Nitrosomonas convert ammonia to nitrite and Nitrobacter and Nitrospira convert nitrite to nitrate.
- Initiates nitrification super fast!
- Promotes stable nitrification.
- Provides stable cold weather nitrification.
- Safe for use around plants and animals.
NOTES ON NITRIFICATION
When ammonia removal is desired first start with MICROBE-LIFT Clean & Clear to reduce the organic waste in the pond as high levels of BOD can inhibit nitrification by competing with the nitrifying microorganisms for necessary oxygen. After applying MICROBE-LIFT Clean & Clear wait 24 to 48 hours to do its job, and then apply MICROBE-LIFT NITE-OUT II. Prior to the addition of NITE-OUT II (to start and maintain nitrification).
Check to make sure that the pond's pH is in the correct range for nitrification. Adjust the pond pH to a range of 7.5 to 8.7, and check to see if adequate alkalinity is present as you must maintain a level of at least 50/ppm of alkalinity at all times. This is necessary as nitrifying microorganisms use 7 parts of alkalinity for each part of ammonia removed (oxidized). If proper alkalinity is not present, nitrification will not occur, and if alkalinity
is lost nitrification will cease and the pond pH will drop due to the nitrifying cultures activity. To increase alkalinity add AquaForte BioStabil or Kusuri Biobalance until you achieve an alkalinity level of 50/ppm to 100/ppm (minimum), and then maintain the alkalinity at a level of 50/ppm.
