Features:

Specially Formulated For Rapid Ammonia & Nitrite Reduction
 

Product Description:

MICROBE-LIFT/NITE-OUT II is designed specifically for pond waters that contain marine life. Its highly-specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures are specially formulated to eliminate ammonia via a natural biological process termed nitrification. 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 Nitrosomonas, Nitrospira and Nitrobacter. Nitrosomonas convert ammonia to nitrite and Nitrobacteria and Nitrospira convert nitrite to nitrate.

MICROBE-LIFT/NITE-OUT II comprises select microorganisms that are autotrophic—able to use carbon dioxide as the sole source of carbon—and are relatively slow growing, requiring specific conditions for optimum growth with typical cell division rates from 8 to 16 hours. Their performance and rate of growth are impacted by the environmental parameters required for nitrification. They are also highly oxygen-sensitive, requiring high dissolved oxygen levels (greater than 2 mg/L) to achieve maximum growth rates. Nitrite is produced by beneficial bacteria in the pond and the oxidation of harmful waste ammonia excreted by fish. Even though nitrite is not as toxic as ammonia, it is still very damaging to the health of fish.

Direction for use:

  • Initiates nitrification
  • Promotes stable nitrification
  • Provides stable cold weather nitrification
  • Safe for use around plants, fish and animals

  • For optimum nitrification and ammonia removal, first treat your pond with Microbelift/PL, with select cultures to reduce organic levels that may inhibit the natural nitrification process. Because nitrification requires adequate levels of alkalinity, check the pond water's pH level and, if necessary adjust it to be in the range of 7.2 to 8.4. Wait 24 hours and add the recommended rate of Microbelift/Nite-Out II to a well aerated section of the pond. ie: waterfalls or water return area. Use ML/Nite-Out II when your pond water temperatures are above 55F (18C).
