When is the best time to use Pond-Bio? + -

The most opportune times to apply Pond-Bio are during pond preparation for faster algal and zooplankton blooms, during heavy rains or intermittent sunlight for stable algae population, and during algal or zooplankton die-offs.

I do not follow the Biofloc Method, do I need Pond-Bio? + -

Yes, definitely. No matter the culture method, a stable algae or zooplankton population is required for pond health. Pond-Bio allows you to achieve a balanced environment in either scenario.


Healthy algal growth and microbial populations derive their nutrients from minerals and elements from the water column, as well as from the substrate. “Pond-Bio” helps to achieve this in ponds where it is not naturally present.

The option of adding easy-to-assimilate carbon will enhance microbial and zooplankton population’s access to a food source that stimulates faster replication, enables efficient utilization of excess nitrogen in the pond, and most importantly, to achieve beneficial microbial balance in the culture environment.

“Pond-Bio” in effect becomes an excellent Bio-Balancer for ideal C:N ratios, Biofloc Enhancer, and Biofloc Starter (heterotrophic, zooplankton bloom).
