PondZilla Black is an all-natural biochemical catalyst that enhances the breakdown of proteins and complex carbohydrates found in aquatic plants. PondZilla Black releases specific biostimulants that allow the naturally-occurring bacteria and fungi to take over degradation of the dead flora and fixation of available nutrients. This product is designed specifically to complement algaecide treatments for aquatic plants and filamentous green algae like Pithophora. Although these products do not kill aquatic plants or algae, the molecular make up of PondZilla Black will boost algaecides so they can penetrate the resting structures while it enables naturally-occurring bacteria to degrade dead organic matter. This treatment is followed up with a dose of MD Pellets to digest what is left.
Applications include ponds, lakes, canals, retention and koi ponds, hatcheries, raceways, and golf course ponds.
PondZilla Black works over a wide pH range, but for best results use citric acid or a low-pH surfactant to adjust tank mix to a pH of 4 to 6:
Monster Dose: 15 gallons per acre
Regular Dose: 3 gallons per acre initially and 1-3 gallons per month thereafter
Pollen Dose: 2 gallons per acre sprayed on the surface
Leaf Degradation: 1-3 gallons per acre per month followed by 10 lbs of MD Pellets
