Ecological Laboratories Concentrated Barley Straw Extract Plus Liquid Peat 1 Gallon Information




All the Benefits of Concentrated Barley Straw Extract PLUS Added Liquid Peat To Help Maintain An Ideal pH in Alkaline Ponds!Rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds! Maturing A Pond Biologically & ChemicallyWhen a pond's ecosystem is mature and balanced, the water is usually clear and healthy for aquatic life. This maturation process is a function of the microbiological and chemical properties of the water. NATURAL CHEMICAL MATURATION MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw LIQUID & DRY formulations help to mature the pond with natural chemicals just as a pure mountain stream matures through the years by the introduction of natural breakdown products from trees, plants, etc. These natural breakdown products often include humic and fulvic acid and organic acids that have a natural ability to sequester, or tie up, inorganic compounds, so their concentrations in the pond don't get to levels that would unbalance the ponds ecosystem. These substances can also lead to natural purification of the pond through a slow release of hydrogen peroxide as they react with sunlight. The hydrogen peroxide is produced at levels that help purify the water while not having any adverse effects on desirable aquatic life. The sequestering, in conjunction with microbiological cycling, provides a stable natural ecosystem in your pond. BIOLOGICAL MATURATION - The microbiological maturation process involves development of symbiotic populations of bacteria, which stabilize the critical organic and inorganic components of the pond. The microorganisms do this through their ability to promote inbiogeochemical cycles in-including carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous cycles-elements critical to all forms of aquatic life. By stabilizing these components, the bacteria prevent pollution of the pond. It can take some time to accomplish this inbiological maturation in in a man-made pond and may never occur as the maturation process is constantly interrupted by certain pond practices like cleaning out the pond. The process can be accelerated significantly through the use of Microbe-Lift/PL-a virtual inecosystem in a bottle in-and mimics the complex interdependent populations in a mature pond. 1 Gallon


Manufacturer Info

Ecological Laboratories Aquarium Supplies
Ecological Laboratories is an international biotechnology company specializing in the development and production of microbial products for the natural treatment of environmental issues associated with the various uses of water and recycling of organic matter. In 1976, Ecological Laboratories began producing Microbe-Lift, a one-of-a kind formula for use in a broad spectrum of applications in the agricultural, industrial and wastewater treatment fields. It became clear that with a little tweaking, what these bacterial formulations do on a large scale for commercial use can also be valuable on smaller scale applications such as ornamental ponds, aquariums and water gardens. In 1998, Ecological Laboratories began packaging Microbe-Lift for end-users. Ecological Laboratories uses outside testing labs for independent analysis of their products. Product testing and monitoring is done regularly as an important part of their quality control process.
