Rapid health is one of those amazing products that we love. It is a natural combination of beneficial bacteria and enzymes that when added to your pond water do two important things. Firstly as a probiotic product it will reduce the population of pathogenic bacteria in the pond environment by removing their food source. The added major benefit of any truly probiotic product, is that it also boosts the immune system of pond fish. Added to these two important benefits, Rapid health also speeds up and enables more rapid healing of skin and tissue damage after either a physical injury or as a result of damage caused by ulceration. This avoids the need in most cases for catching the affected fish to treat individually and we have found the results after using Rapid Health to be consistently very good. 1 Litre treats 20,000 litres or 4400 gallons. Cannot be overdosed

Kusuri Bio Balance
Bio balance is a natural blend of minerals designed to stabilise the pond pH level and increase/stabilse the temporary hardness (Alkilinity) of pond water.
Bio balance is a mineral, not a chemical. Bio balance is ideal for use in low alkaline soft water conditions (extremely low levels of hardness are also know to be detrimental to Koi health beacause Koi cannot osmo-regulate easily in very soft water). Bio balance will stabilize an eco system facilitating less pH "swing". Using Bio-balance can increase KH and pH in a short period of time, and once the desired level is achieved very small mainteance doses should only be required.
Use Bio balance as a KH regulator - 25 grams per 1000 gallons of water per day until desired KH is reached. Repeat whenever required.

Stress coat has been specifically designed to protect koi from harmful toxins in water and is ideal to use when quarantining new koi or for transportation to help overcome the stress associated with poor water or transit. We use this marvellous product when transporting koi to our customers. Contains Aloe Vera to help sooth and protect the body and gills from many common irritants. Will also neutralise Chlorine and Chloramines in tap water and protect Koi from skin and gill damage in less than perfect water. This another product which does exactly what it says on the tin!.
We are distributors of the world renowned Microbe lift products from Eco Laboratories in the USA. These naturally cultured products all contain different blends of aerobic bacteria, photosynthetic bacteria (those that use light as a source of energy), anaerobic bacteria and chemosynthetic organisms. Eco laboratories are the only company that have been able to culture these products, in house, and largely in the containers they are sold in. This is because the organisms only grow synergistically, representing a virtual ecosystem in a bottle. These cultures coexist and flourish, and this is the way they work in your pond - together, and this is also why the products have massive shelf lives - up to 5 years. As they are all cultures of naturally occurring forms of micro-organisms, they cannot be overdosed, are all completely safe to use with all pond fish and plants, and importantly they can be used together, if required, as they are not chemicals. Most importantly, these products are not only among the very best of their types on the market, but they are super value for money when compared with (claimed) competing products and added to the long shelf life are frankly simply light years ahead of other products in this market. .

Microbe Lift Ammonia Remover
Microbe lift Ammonia remover is a life saver product which can be used to instantly lower and remove toxic Ammonia in a pond. It works by chemically converting the toxic form of Ammonia NH3 to the less harmful NH4. 1 Litre treats around 2,500 - 4000 gallons, depending on the levels of Ammonia present.
Microbe Lift Nite Out
Microbe lift Nite out is a life saver product which can be used to instantly lower and remove toxic Nitrite in a pond. Nitrite poisons Koi by preventing the uptake of oxygen into the blood stream and is produced during the second stage of nitrification by filter bacteria..
Microbe Lift pH Adjuster
Microbe lift pH adjuster (up or down) counters pH swings caused by acid rain and other environmental factors. The pH level of the pond water affects the pH of our Kois blood and Koi are very sensitive to sudden changes in the pH level of their environment. It is therefore vitally important to monitor and prevent rapid changes in pH levels, especially if you have relatively soft water, which is more prone to pH swings.
1 Litre treats around 2,500 - 4000 gallons, depending on the pH level
- Formulated in de-ionised water
- Includes 2 different pH adjusters for gentle effectiveness
- Includes 3 electrolytes to help maintain osmotic balance

Microbe Lift Thera P
Microbe lift Thera P is a culture of aerobic, facultative anerobes, plus photsynthetic and chemosynthetic organisms . TheraP is a probiotic product and will reduce the population of pathogenic bacteria in the pond environment by rapidly removing their food source by decomposition. The added major benefit of any truly probiotic product, is that it also boosts the immune system of pond fish. It also directly helps to break down toxic Ammonia and Nitrite , and therefore assists with the maturation of the pond filter. It speeds up the decomposition of sludge and other organic materials in the pond which can otherwise provide a breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria. It is in fact a complete pond eco system in a bottle!
Microbe Lift Phosphate remover
The ultimate remedy in phosphate removal for fresh water. Use Microbe-Lift / Phosphate Remover for starting up a new pond. This guarantees low phosphate concentrations. To clear the pond from phosphate successfully, use Phosphate Remover regularly in new or existing “mature” ponds. MICROBE-LIFT/POND PHOSPHATE REMOVER is a polymeric blend with outstanding qualities, including the ability to tie-up large quantities of phosphate without negatively influencing the pond water in any way. Phosphate- caused by the decomposition of organic substances such as food surpluses, dead plant matter, and excretion. Although phosphate is a vital part, it is only damaging in higher concentrations. A phosphate concentration increase could lead to water quality problems. To solve problems caused by phosphate, it is recommended to keep the phosphate concentration in fresh water below 0.3 mg/ltr. Will not harm fish or plants.
Dechlorinator is designed to remove harmful Chlorine and Chloramines from tap water to render it safe for fish keeping. Harmless to fish and all pond life. Dose 10ml per 150 gallons. Use when initially filling your pond and when carrying out water changes.
KH up and GH up
NT laboratories have now developed two special mineral salt preparations in order that you can regulate and control the level of Calcium hardness and the General hardness in your pond water. Low levels of hardness can be caused by low levels of hardness in the incoming water supply, or by acid rain. It can also be affected by overuse of certain chemicals in the water, and by excess levels of carbon dioxide in the water. In addition some biological medias, notably ceramic medias strip calcium from pond water, so the KH will gradually fall if not monitored. KH up allows you to make the necessary adjustments to keep the KH at acceptable levels. Dose is 50gm per 75 gallons of pond water to raise the KH/GH by 3 to 4 points.
|KH up 1.5kg||£16.95|
|KH up 5kg||£49.50|
|KH up 20kg||£129.00|
|GH up 1.5kg||£16.95|
|GH up 5kg||£49.50|
|GH up 20kg||£129.00|
