Arctic Blend™ Winter Pond Care
THE BIG ARCTIC BLEND™ QUESTION?
Q How does Arctic Blend™ remove ammonia from frigid pond water when it’s a known fact that “nitrifying bacteria” which keeps ammonia and nitrites at zero does not perform in cold water?
A Here’s how it works. Arctic Blend™ IS NOT a “nitrifying bacteria”. Arctic Blend™ is formulated with billions of natural unique microbes that absorb the ammonia from your pond water. Then these unique microbes process the ammonia through their system, rendering the ammonia harmless to your fish. You never have the common “nitrifying bacteria nitrogen cycle” which is, high ammonia then high nitrites and at last, less toxic nitrates when using Arctic Blend™. The best part is, Arctic Blend™ is 100% Natural!!
Start treating when pond water temperature drops to 55 degrees F. However, if you want the “microbes” to have a “head start” on the cold water temperatures start treating in the early fall.
You can start using Arctic Blend™ in the fall and it’s made for treating your koi fish pond all winter. If you have any left over in the spring, you can use Arctic Blend™ until pond water temperature reaches 60 degrees F.
Attention: SHAKE ARCTIC BLEND™ WELL BEFORE USING

You do not have to mix Arctic Blend™ with pond water. Just measure the correct amount Arctic Blend™ for your pond and add it to your pond, no mixing. NOTE: never mix any Aqua Meds natural products with tap water. The chlorine in the tap water will harm the “microbes” in the product.
