Specially Formulated for Rapid Ammonia & Nitrite Reduction

MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II is the ideal solution for pond waters containing marine life. This product features a highly-specialized microbial consortium of nitrifying cultures designed to eliminate ammonia through the natural biological process known as nitrification. The cultures in MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II establish, promote, and stabilize nitrification in pond waters, effectively eliminating the toxic effects of ammonia.

Key Features:

  • Liquid Nitrifying Bacteria: MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II contains select strains of Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter. Nitrosomonas convert ammonia to nitrite, while Nitrobacter convert nitrite to nitrate.
  • Effective Nitrification: Initiates and promotes nitrification, ensuring a stable biological balance in your pond.
  • Cold Weather Nitrification: Provides stable nitrification even in colder conditions.
  • Safe for Pond Ecosystem: This product is safe for use around plants and animals in your pond.

MICROBE-LIFT/Nite-Out II consists of select microorganisms that are autotrophic, meaning they can use carbon dioxide as their sole source of carbon. They have a relatively slow growth rate, with typical cell division rates ranging from 8 to 16 hours. The performance and growth rate of these microorganisms are influenced by specific environmental parameters necessary for nitrification.

It's important to note that these microorganisms are highly oxygen-sensitive and require high dissolved oxygen levels (greater than 2 mg/L) for maximum growth rates. Nitrite, produced by beneficial bacteria in the pond during the oxidation of harmful waste ammonia excreted by fish, can be damaging to fish health, although not as toxic as ammonia.
