Overabundance of planktonic algae can lead to fish kills in the late summer. This occurs when the large number of algae dies suddenly due to colder air temperatures.

AquaSticker

AquaSticker

AquaSticker is a biological sticking agent that disrupts the protective microbiota of algae and aquatic plants. This product is the result of extensive research in the Naturalake Biosciences’ laboratory.  It is the latest innovation in aquatic bio-catalyst technologies.  AquaSticker stimulates competitive bacterial growth and encourages algae and aquatic plants to naturally uptake chemicals.

This versatile technology boosts herbicide and algaecide performance in a variety of applications.  It excels in hard water treatments and can be applied as a tablet or liquid as needed.  AquaSticker blends well with most chemistries and biologicals including PondZilla and Water Column Clarifier.

See how it works

The science behind it

Algae and aquatic plants host distinct microbial communities on their surface called the microbiota.  This diverse community of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, archaea, and viruses) can be both mutualistic and pathogenic.  The microbiota plays a key role in protecting algae and aquatic plants from environmental impacts, pathogens, and chemical attacks.  It also is important in fixating nutrients for growth.  The community can adapt or shift according to the conditions to promote the health and survival of its host.

Improving performance of algaecide / herbicides

The effectiveness of a chemical treatment can be limited by the ability the microbiota to protect its host.  Shifting metabolic activities or reactions and producing thick biofilms are examples of how the microbiota defends algae and aquatic plants from copper, diquat, endothall, and other chemistries.

When blended in with algaecides and herbicides, AquaSticker temporarily disrupts the protective microbiota by fostering competitive microbial growth on algae and aquatic plants.  Upsetting the natural balance of this community temporarily enhances chemical uptake by the host.  AquaSticker also improves contact time with targeted algae and aquatic plants by slowing dissipation in the water column and increasing adhesion.

Improving performance of probiotics

AquaSticker’s unique traits and essential components allow it to combine well and improve the performance of our probiotics and biocatalysts (Water Column Clarifier and PondZilla Pro).  When blended together, AquaSticker and Water Column Clarifier will improve formation of microfloc which clarifies the water.  When mixed with PondZilla Pro, AquaSticker improves the biological reaction at the surface of the algae or plant.

Water Column Clarifier

Water Column Clarifier

The perfect solution clarifying your water

Water Column Clarifier is a high-performance liquid probiotic that clarifies water through enhanced biological flocculation. This formulation removes nitrogen and temporarily binds phosphorus in the water column. Designed for aquatic professionals, it quickly restores balance and improves clarity in lakes and ponds.

Water Column Clarifier excels when used alone or after algaecide treatments to flocculate and precipitate dead algal cells. For an extra boost, Water Column Clarifier can also be used in combination with AquaSticker or PondZilla.

See how it works

The Science Behind It

A weak microbial community can be a contributing factor leading to poor water quality and poor clarity. Chemical treatments, washouts, and runoff are all common events that can negatively impact the abundance or activity of microbes in an aquatic environment. Ailing microbes and poor floc-formation can limit the community’s natural capabilities and lead to increased turbidity and nutrient overloading.

Water Column Clarifier’s proprietary formula uses select bacteria cultures and bio-stimulants to enhance biological flocculation. This process creates a microfloc which further removes turbidity from the water column. Water Column Clarifier provides a natural way to improve water clarity and quality.

MuckBiotics

MuckBiotics

Advance Sludge Removing Probiotic

MuckBiotics are a next generation probiotic tablet for restoration and maintenance of impaired water resources. This advanced probiotic combines scientific research with novel bioengineering, resulting in a product that treats the entire water body by starting at the bottom. MuckBiotics tablets saturate the sediment layer with rare earth stimulants and a broad spectrum of natural bacterial cultures. This establishes a healthy microbiota at the water-to-sediment interface that accelerates the digestion of organic matter.

The Science Behind It

Backed by years of intensive study. MuckBiotics have been proven to reduce organic matter and key nutrients in muck through a study using a lab setup that more closely mimics real life water bodies than any previous study. Read the full study or learn more about the details below.
