$35.00Price
Calcium Montmorillonite Clay is a 100% natural formulation for pond clarity and Koi health, growth and color. It provides fish nutrition through mineral ingestion, improves fish color and detoxifies and clarifies pond water.

It is said the secret to healthy, colorful Koi is the clay mud in which they are raised. This clay comes from one of the highest calcium clay deposits in the world.
Calcium based clay may help your pond water to produce some of the healthiest and deep colored Koi you have ever raised (or seen).

It is not only a nutrient source for your Koi but it will also "polish" your pond water. The clay acts as a naturall flocculent and the particles that are bound up are filtered out of the water.

    Most of the clays available in the U.S. are based upon those used in Japan. The Japanese replenish their mud ponds in the spring before
    filling them with Koi.

     

    You can simulate this process by gradually adding clay to your pond
    on a regular basis all year round. This will ensure that many of the natural minerals Koi need to improve their health, skin quality, color and lustre are present in the pond all the time. Most people use clay to improve water clarity, but the main reason to apply clay to your pond is its unseen action: the remineralisation of the pond water.

     

    The added clay carries out an ion exchange action, releasing minerals into
    the water. It’s also been proven that adding clay to Koi food will result in healthier Koi with better skin quality and faster growth rates than Koi not
    given a supplement.


    With most clay, adding partial amounts every other day results in the greatest improvment, but in any case within several weeks the results
    will be obvious in the Koi and the water.

     

    Clays are not like salt and do not dissolve. Oncesettled after the ion exchange has been carried out, it will leave a small, harmless precipitation
    on the bottom of the pond. If you have a bottom drain system, you’ll notice that it will collect in the settlement chambers. The high-purity clays
    settle in about 6-18 hours. Water clarity will have returned to normal levels in about 24 hours. After a short peroid of time, your Koi will start to reap the benefits and the water clarity will be significantly improved.
