No need for harsh chemicals or algaecides. Aquaplancton works naturally and effectively to eliminate algae without the hazards of conventional treatments.

"It worked exactly as promised within a week. The
expensive pond guy told me it was impossible to
get clear water... Aquaplancton proved otherwise."

ADMINISTER DOSE

Once you receive your product, simply apply Aquaplancton to your pond or lake. We have application instructions on our site or we can answer any questions via telephone.

IF NECESSARY, REAPPLY

In some cases, a second dose may be required. If this is the case for you, we recommend applying a much smaller second dose 4-6 weeks later.

Frequently Asked Questions

AQUAPLANCTON works by stimulating the beneficial, aerobic bacteria within your pond. These micro-organisms normally digest the rotting organic matter that builds up on the bottom of your pond. However, when these micro-organisms become inactive, mud accumulates causing algae and blanket weed to thrive.

AQUAPLANCTON re-activates these beneficial aerobic bacteria, which in turn consume the mud. This starves algae and blanket weed of their nutrition causing them to die out naturally.

How Much Mud Can Be Consumed?

Good bacteria, working well, can consume up to six inches of mud in six months.

What Happens to the Mud?

Mud, made up from rotting leaves, fish excrement and dead weeds is 90% water. The aerobic bacteria consume the rotting organic matter in the mud, leaving only water. This is why the mud appears to miraculously disappear.

AQUAPLANCTON naturally eliminates green water, sludge, slime, algae, odor, and string algae/blanket weed from all freshwater environments from the smallest ponds to lakes and streams.

Chemical algae killers like algaecides can eliminate this nasty problem but they also wipe out all the vital friendly bacteria in your pond. Harsh chemicals like this are dosed based on how many gallons in a pond and often this is not easily calculated.  It is the average depth times the surface area to get the cubic feet of water all times 7.48.

If you get this wrong the dose may be too weak or worse too strong risking or even killing pond life including fish. These chemicals often need to be added to a pond every 2-4 weeks all season long increasing the damage they do to the ponds delicate Eco-system.

Ponds need a balance of friendly and unfriendly bacteria to avoid algae and promote healthy conditions for your fish, plants and all aquatic life. AQUAPLANCTON works – naturally and usually one initial dose and possibly a second smaller dose 4-6 weeks later is all that is needed for the season.

Unpleasant odor is caused by bad, anaerobic bacteria. AQUAPLANCTON knocks out the bad anaerobic bacteria and replaces them with good aerobic bacteria.

Yes, AQUAPLANCTON only works on organic mud. Clay is a mineral and will not be consumed.  Rubber liners will not be harmed.

Yes. AQUAPLANCTON will increase the oxygen levels by about 20%, but not in one day. The oxygen levels will gradually increase over a period of about 6 months.

Absolutely! Unlike manufactured chemicals, AQUAPLANCTON is not harmful to the environment and is used successfully with fish all the time. It won’t harm amphibians, ducks, plants or any form of water life. It is even safe for your pets to drink from water treated with AQUAPLANCTON.

Remember that some fish can be sensitive to any change in their environment so ultimately the pond owner has to be responsible for the wellbeing of their own fish.

AQUAPLANCTON won’t harm plants, but if you want to avoid getting it onto the leaves, you can mix it in a watering can with some of the pond water and insert the spout, without the rose, between or beneath the leaves. This gets the AQUAPLANCTON into the pond with the minimum amount of mess.

Ponds can be treated any time of the year. AQUAPLANCTON even works well in winter. It’s a good idea to start to apply AQUAPLANCTON 4-6 weeks before you normally expect blanket weed to start growing as this is likely to reduce or entirely stop any outbreak.

AQUAPLANCTON needs a certain amount of organic matter to work on and when you clean out manually you also destroy many of the beneficial bacteria. However, if you have already cleaned your pond, you can still use AQUAPLANCTON, as it will help to replace those beneficial bacteria. However, as tap water contains trace elements which foster the growth of algae, it is better not to clean your pond out before treating, unless it is particularly polluted.

It is safe to use AQUAPLANCTON in conjunction with fish remedies, other pond products and UV filters. However, as AQUAPLANCTON is entirely natural, the fewer unnatural methods used the better.

Results vary greatly from pond to pond. When you use AQUAPLANCTON you are working with nature, so you have to be prepared for things to happen at nature’s pace. In some cases, results can be seen in a few days; in others it can take a few weeks or even some months. As AQUAPLANCTON is perfectly safe, you can apply it frequently to the water. Frequent small amounts will work better than large amounts infrequently. In most cases you should see a significant improvement in the health of your pond in about 6-8 weeks.

AQUAPLANCTON is active in the water for at least a year. The activity doesn’t suddenly stop, but it does begin to slow. For smaller ponds we recommend applying AQUAPLANCTON 2-3 times a year, for example apply in spring, summer and fall. Larger ponds and lakes are a lot more stable than smaller areas, thereby needing to be treated less often.

Yes. Please contact us with the estimated area of your lake in square feet or acres.

For lakes, spread from a small boat or poured in front of the propeller of an outboard motor. Usually a pallet (40 x 55lbs bags) will treat one acre.

For rivers and streams, bags can be positioned across the bottom like a dam. By perforating them, water will penetrate the bags, forming a thick paste which will be carried away by the water flow and deposited on the layers of mud. Where the situation allows, AQUAPLANCTON can also be spread over the surface of the water from the banks at strategic points where the silt builds up.

No, but if you have green water or string algae/blanket weed it is likely that your pond is on the acidic side. AQUAPLANCTON will neutralize any acidity immediately, similar to an antacid neutralizing gastric acidity. If the water is already alkaline, you can still use AQUAPLANCTON, however, in these cases the pH level usually stays the same.
