It is a direct substitute for fish pond filter media
that scavenges toxic ammonia from pond
water. It is a true 21st century filter medium with both
ion exchange and superior mechanical filtration
Zeolite is especially adapted as a direct replacement
for sand, sand and anthracite, and multi-media water
filtration media as it filters out particles as small as
3 microns, whereby sand typically filters particles of
20 microns or larger. zeolites' unique crystalline
structure will double the capacity to load particulate
matter which will reduce the number of backwashes
required to keep the water clean and
also acts as a biological filter in which bacteria
mineralize the organic nitrogen compounds, a process
known as Nitrification. It involves the oxidation of
ammonia to nitrite and then to nitrates by autotrophic
bacteria. The huge surface area of Zeolite makes it an
excellent host for aerobic bacteria that eat the ammonia.
The zeolite will continue to remove algae for weeks on
end, depending on the amount of ammonia being excreted
in the water over time.
Also,unlike ordinary filter media such as gravel or sand,
the surfaces of Zeolite particles
are not smooth and therefore have large surface areas.
Zeolite is therefore an extremely effective biological
media for maximum colinization of useful bacteria.
The waste produced by fish and decaying matter can
quickly build up deadly ammonia levels if left unchecked.
Moderate amounts of ammonia in an established pond can
kill the fish that live in it. Zeolite actively removes
ammonia from the water by a process called ion-exchange.
This allows for more fish stocks in a smaller volume of
Unlike ordinary filter sand, the surfaces of Zeolite
particles are not smooth. Zeolite particles attract and
trap extremely fine dirt particles and algae directly
onto their surfaces and not just between the grains like
ordinary sand. You should notice a considerable
difference to the water clarity after just one day of
use. This is due to a powerful negative charge that
exists within the Zeolite structure that attracts
positively charged cation contaminants such as ammonia
and holds them within the Zeolite structure.
Ammonia is one of the main food sources for algae.
Zeolite removes this food source (ammonia) by a process
called ion-exchange. Zeolite scavenges and holds onto
the ammonium ions within it's crystaline structure. In
short, no more ammonia means less algae!
The nitrogen cycle is an essential part of sucessful
fish ponds. In this process, ammonia is converted to
nitrites and nitrates by beneficial bacterial colonies
called nitrosomanas and nitrobacter. Due to it rough and
porous suface, Clinofish is the ideal substrate for
these biological filters to thrive.
Zeolite is a 100% natural mineral. This mineral is used
in industry as a pollution cleanup material. When it is
time to replace the Zeolite in your pond filter, simply
spread your old ammonia-loaded Zeolite onto your lawn
and watch your grass grow! Used Zeolite acts as the
perfect slow release fertilizer for your lawn and flower
beds! Best of all, it is completely natural!
Not only does Zeolite remove ammonia from pond water, it
also removes highly toxic heavy metals such as lead as
well as some of the most dangerous radionuclides like
Caesium and Strontium. You can regenerate Zeolite.
Simply turn off your pump, remove filter top, drain out
all the water, remove the Zeolite from the filter tank
and place it in a large bath or trough. Add a solution
of 10% salt solution or 1kg rock salt per 10 litres
water over the Zeolite filter media so that the Zeolite
is fully submerged in the salt solution.Leave this over
night to remove all the absorbed ammonia from the
