Plastic pre-formed ponds, as well as vinyl, cement and rubber ponds, do not have any nutrients on their bottom. In the wild, carp use mud to get many of their micronutrients and minerals. Microbe-Lift CMC Calcium Montmorillonite Clay has a negative electric charge which will bind the clay particles to positively charged toxins in the water.
Microbe-Lift CMC Calcium Montmorillonite Clay is not only a nutrient source for koi, it will also “polish” your pond water. The clay acts as a natural flocculent and the particles that are bound up are filtered out of the pond.
The clay can help make pond water sparkling clean (polishing).
Clay is used in ponds to achieve many goals:
- Provides fish nutrition through mineral ingestion
- Improves fish color
- Detoxifies and clarifies pond water (polishing)
