Bio Boost Nitrifier is a natural biological product. Its sole
focus is to keep nitrogen in the aquatic environment low. Nitrogen
is often the limiting factor in many pond systems.
Bio Boost Nitrifier is a consortium of autotrophic and
heterotrophic organisms that reduce all types of nitrogen.
It's not just nitrifiers but it also contains some denitrifying
organisms. The great thing about ammonia is when a pond is properly
managed you can get rid of it. It will be converted and the process
will eventually release nitrogen gas out of the pond and back to
the atmosphere. Very useful in ponds where ammonia is the limiting
Bio Boost Nitrifier attacks nitrogen in all its forms, is safe
to use & safe for the environment. Bio Boost Nitrifier is great
for ponds with ducks, geese, and other waterfowl as well
is in ponds where fish are overstocked or overfeed.
Nitrogen exists in several forms. The principal types of concern
in water are: Total nitrogen, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. In
ponds without aeration there is a greater tendency to build up
total nitrogen and ammonia. In ponds with aeration nitrite and
nitrate buildup can be a concern. If waters are unmanaged, nitrogen
may cause problems with respect to algal proliferation and
The removal of ammonia by bacteria and
oxygen is called 'nitrification' and the reaction looks like
Nitrogen Waste -->NH3 (ammonia)
-->N02 (nitrite) --> NO3(nitrate)
The conversion of nitrate to nitrogen gas is called
N2^ (nitrogen gas)
It's also important to note that the best source of these
autotrophic bacteria is from runoff from the soil. This is one
reason why ponds look so nice after a gentle rain and so bad during

Nitrifier can be added by: boat sprayer, adding near
an aerator to help distribute it in the whole pond, from a
sprayer on shore, pouring it in around the edge of a pond
and/or metering in with a small chemical feeder
Migratory Waterfowl Ponds: Just feed Bio Boost
Nitrifier and some Bio Boost Muck Digesting Pellets into a pond
when the geese, ducks or other waterfowl come through and this will
help uptake the nitrogen so when they leave you're not left with a
pond with all kinds of new growth.
Swimming & Fishing Ponds: Swimming and
fishing ponds are often well maintained in every way. They
have superb aeration which really can build up the nitrite and
nitrate. These ponds often develop Oscillatoria and Lyngbya due to
the excellent water quality and lack of competing algae species.
When these cyanobacteria crop up we recommend Bio Boost
Nitrifier and slight aeration.
Golf courses use a lot of nitrogen-rich fertilizer and it often
ends up in golf ponds.
Agricultural fertilizers and animal waste ponds get very high in
total nitrogen and Bio Boost Nitrifier is an important part of
restoring the balance.
We recommend applying Bio Boost Healthy Koi Pond
which was designed specifically with koi in mind.
In shrimp farming ammonia and nitrates is often the limiting
factor, as shrimp need very pure water to grow.
