This weeks featured product is Nitrate Klear.
Nitrate Klear is a natural & safe nitrate removal treatment designed for ponds and aquariums. High nitrate levels can be very dangerous to fish and can lead to death. By reducing the nitrate levels in your pond or aquarium you will reduce the risk of fish death. Furthermore, reducing the risk of blanket weed.
How Does Nitrate Klear Work?
Nitrate Klear uses nitrifying bacteria chosen to reduce the harmful levels of nitrates founds in ponds and aquariums. The bacteria are most effective in water temperatures above 8°C. Ultimately, we recommend using a nitrate test kit to monitor the nitrates to a safe level.
Furthermore, continued treatment with Nitrate Klear will keep levels safe and reduce the risk of any infections occurring in fish.

What Should Nitrate Levels Be in A Pond?
Nitrate levels should be kept between 20ppm and 60ppm. Anything above this can cause irreversible damage to your fish, including their liver, spleen, nervous system and kidneys.
Furthermore, nitrate levels are easy to neutralise and can be done so within hours, using Nitrate Klear.
What Is Nitrate in A Pond?
Nitrate is a by-product of the bacterial reduction of ammonia. Ammonia is released via fish waste, then converted into Nitrites by good bacteria and the final product is Nitrates.
Furthermore, nitrates can be fatal to your fish if they are not kept in check. Providing your water parameters are stable and have been treated with Pond Equaliser, you should never have to worry about Nitrates. However, it is good practice to regularly test for them and if they are high, treat with Nitrate Klear to reduce them back to a normal level.
How to Reduce Nitrate in A Pond?
In addition, to using Nitrate Klear there are a couple of things that you could do to try and reduce Nitrate levels in your pond. It may be necessary to do a 1/3 water change using tap water. If you do this, be sure to check your other levels as tap water contains heavy metals. Such as copper that you don’t want in your pond. Increase the aeration of your pond when doing a water change.
However, the most likely cause for a spike in Nitrate levels is due to a lack of aerobic bacteria. Nitrate Klear will boost these bacteria levels to help digest the Nitrates
Effects of Nitrates in Water?
High Nitrate, Nitrite or Ammonia levels in your pond can lead to fatal consequences to your fish. Brown Blood Disease is the most common problem linked to high Nitrate levels. The Nitrates combine with the Haemoglobin and make the red blood cells incapable of transporting oxygen. This then starves the fish of oxygen, you may see them gasping for air at the surface of the water.
