Use one level tablespoon of "KOI CLAY" for each 1,000 gallons (US) of water every other day for the first two weeks. Beginning the third week only dose one or two days per week. You can dissolve "KOI CLAY" into a container of pond water and pour it evenly around the pond, or make it into a mud ball and lay it in a gently flowing stream of water so it dissolves slowly.
The minerals contained in "KOI CLAY" are beneficial to all living things. They benefit your plants and fish, as well as the bacteria living in your filters. "KOI CLAY" will remove toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, and pesticides). "KOI CLAY" literally attracts these elements like a magnet and then sucks them up like a sponge. This causes the entire "mess" to settle so it can be removed by a good mechanical filter, or screened out manually. All this improves water clarity and quality.
ADDING "KOI CLAY" TO THE FISH FOOD
"KOI CLAY" can be sprinkled on moistened fish food pellets or added to homemade paste foods. If you moisten the pellets you can also put them into a plastic bag containing "KOI CLAY" and shake it so the clay powder evenly covers the moist pellets. Spread them out onto a cookie sheet to dry and you can feed them later. Feeding your koi and goldfish calcium bentonite clay aids in their digestion as well as removing toxins from their bodies. By improving your fish's digestion it decreases the amount of waste they produce which in turn reduces the load on your filter thus improving water quality.
VISIBLE BENEFITS TO YOUR FISH
Within two or three weeks you will see an improvement in your water as well as the skin quality of your koi and goldfish. The colors will be more vivid, and the white ground brighter. Your fish will show increased appetites and vigor.
BENEFITS TO PLANTS
"KOI CLAY" can be added to your potting soil or garden dirt. You can sprinkle it on the surface of potted plants or mix it with the water when watering your plants. "KOI CLAY" will add minerals lacking in your garden soil and improve the nutrition as well as the flavor of your vegetables. It also improves disease resistance in your plants.
