How Does Nualgi Ponds Work?

An innovative approach to improving pond balance, Nualgi Ponds works at the microscopic level to improve water clarity, reduce algae and keep aquatic plants and fish healthy. Nualgi starts a natural biological cycle by feeding beneficial diatoms. Diatoms are a key contributor to water clarity in our natural lakes, rivers and oceans, so you want plenty of them in your pond. Nualgi makes healthy diatoms grow at an explosive rate.

These diatoms then consume nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus, outcompeting the nuisance algae for these elements because they photosynthesize earlier and in less light. The nuisance algae starve and the helpful diatoms thrive. Diatoms have other supportive attributes for your pond, too. Diatoms deliver oxygen to the bacteria who clean up the pond by consuming waste produced by fish and leftover food. They produce little bubbles of oxygen that keep the water healthy and sparkling. Your pond achieves a natural balance and you have healthy, vibrant fish with more food and oxygen.
