Pond Water Clarifiers
Clear Pond - BSL Formula contains live beneficial bacteria and has been enhanced and patented to keep fish ponds clean, clear and healthy.
- Completely natural and beneficial to pond life
- 100% environmentally safe, non pathogenic, and nontoxic
- Eliminates foul odors
- Clear Pond works in a wide range of pH and is effective in helping nature keep pond water clean and clear. It breaks down sludge that usually builds up at the pond bottom and helps to control build up of wild life waste.
- Clear Pond promotes fish health through its new probiotic formulation of bacteria and thereby help to protect fish against disease.
- Clear Pond is especially good at seeding and maintaining biological filters when used on a regular basis. Clear Pond functions in water temperatures under 55°F and over 90°F.
The Clear Pond BSL Liquid Contains a blend of billions of various microbes (primarily Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter) which are known to be highly beneficial to the ecological balance of pond water. The Clear Pond BSL Liquid specifically targets and decomposes many of the toxic compounds and organics found in pond water.
Clear Pond is proud to announce our New BSL Formula. A microbiotic blend of probiotic bacteria and a revolutionary technological breakthrough in the development of microbes for use in pond water management. Clear Pond contains a blend of aerobic and facultative anaerobes, (good bacteria), that are capable of breaking down algae and eliminating a sludge layer even in an anaerobic (non-oxygen) environment. Through a process of "selective adaptation" our natural bacteria have been enhanced in a 3-stage program. These are the first bacterial strains that were not engineered, but enhanced from nature, to receive patents. These bacteria have been naturally enhanced to rule the pond environment. Through a process known as "competitive displacement" they confine and replace pathogenic (bad) bacteria that usually form in an anaerobic condition and actually protect fish against the very pathogenic conditions that cause disease.
If fish are to survive in a new pond, the water must contain beneficial microbes. These microbes naturally eliminate the waste material of fish. This process is called aging of the pond water. In order for the pond water to properly age and new fish to survive, beneficial bacteria must establish colonies in the biological portion of your filter and on the surface areas of your pond. Bacteria excrete polysaccharides, a sticky starch, to help them attach to surface areas and each other, thus enabling colonization and growth.
While the decaying organic waste matter known as sludge and the foul gases it produces such as ammonia and sulfide create health problems for fish and promote the growth of algae, they are also a tasty food for our beneficial and enhanced Clear Pond Bacteria. When used as a quick start, or boost to your biological filter and pond, it will enhance the natural bacteria growth in your pond and jump-start the bacteria colonies already growing naturally in your filter to enable them to out-compete the algae and pathogenic bacteria for nutrients in the water. By successfully out competing them for nutrients they then control them. This process reduces foul odors, increases the dissolved oxygen content of the water, reduces algae blooms and creates a healthy environment for your pond and pond life. New Clear Pond BSL for ponds contains a blend of various probiotic microbes, which are known to be highly beneficial to the ecological balance of pond water and have been naturally enhanced to rule the pond environment. Through a process known as "competitive displacement", they confine and replace pathogenic (bad) bacteria and actually protect fish against the very pathogenic conditions that cause disease. Each bottle contains billions of these especially cultured beneficial microbes. When mixed with the water in a new pond after dechlorinating with Chloramine Buster, they instantly provide the microbes necessary for fish survival. For a balanced pond and healthy fish, the recommended amount of Clear Pond BSL should be used weekly.
Clear Pond is composed of beneficial bacteria that are non-toxic, non-pathogenic and 100% safe and natural. Over the past 20 years agents of the U.S. Department of Fish and Game and agents of the EPA have recommended the use of Clear Pond beneficial bacteria.
Over 10,000,000 containers have been sold to pond and water garden hobbyists since 1978.

API Pond Simply-Clear Fast Acting Bacterial Pond Clarifier that quickly clears murky, cloudy water and keeps it clean and clear through natural bacterial action.
- Consumes Phosphates and Nitrates
- Clarifies water of organic and inorganic materials
- Quickly clears pond water
This triple action formula acts fast - clears pond water and breaks down sludge and offers a long-term solution to un-clear pond water. Pond Simply Clear is a fast acting bacteria that feeds on small size organic materials that often cause cloudy water conditions. As the bacteria rapidly grow they shed their outer coating which acts as natural flocculent clumping fine particles.
As the fine particles clump together they either drop to the bottom of the pond or are removed by the pond filter. Once the particles are clumped together the bacteria have a concentrated food source further reducing the causes of cloudy water conditions. The bacteria require phosphates as a necessary food source eliminating it from the water. The fast-acting bacteria are extremely efficient at breaking down dissolved proteins that are associated with poor water clarity. Simply Clear bacteria will quickly clear pond water and digest and eliminate the floating particles.
16 oz: Treats 4,000 Gallons
32 oz: Treats 8,000 Gallons
64 oz: Treats up to 16,000 Gallons
1 Gallon: Treats up to 32,000 Gallons

Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets Plus is a 100% natural and organic formula that will naturally balance your pond water and improve water clarity. Fish will not eat Barley Pellets as they do not contain any food value.
- Matures pond water chemistry and buffers pH
- Quickly releases decomposition by-products
- Works all year round
Designed to disperse immediately by placing pellets in your pond or packing in a porous fabric sock and suspending in your pond or available chamber in your skimmer or filter. Please refer to Alternate Image for Application Rates.
What is it? Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets Plus is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment! Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. Manufactured using an exclusive proprietary pelleting process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn and other binders, the barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure the quality of these essential ingredients.
How does it work? It works in much the same way as ordinary barley straw...only faster! Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets in MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets +, only the breakdown compounds are released faster: dispersing equally throughout the water; reacting photochemically with sunlight; and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide-an oxidizing agent that also helps to keep the water clear-naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + are rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds!
Please note: MICROBE-LIFT/Barley Straw Pellets + will leave a residual on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as MICROBE-LIFT/Sludge Away will digest this organic residual.
Note: 4.4 lb bag is now packaged in a box for your convenience.
