MuckBiotics are a next generation probiotic tablet for restoration and maintenance of impaired water resources. This advanced probiotic combines scientific research with novel bioengineering, resulting in a product that treats the entire water body by starting at the bottom. MuckBiotics tablets saturate the sediment layer with rare earth stimulants and a broad spectrum of natural bacterial cultures. This establishes a healthy microbiota at the water-to-sediment interface that accelerates the digestion of organic matter. The microbiota functions as a biofilter, reducing harmful nutrient loading from both internal and external sources. MuckBiotics will promote improved water quality and clarity in water bodies experiencing decline.
The tablets are applied by broadcasting the tablets evenly over the surface of the targeted area. They sink to the bottom and rapidly populate the aquatic environment in which they are applied. MuckBiotics should be applied across the entire surface of a water body for best results. They also excel at targeting shorelines, coves, or similar specific areas prone rapid accumulation of organic matter.
NOTE: MuckBiotics DO NOT kill aquatic plants or algae
Backed by years of intensive study. MuckBiotics have been proven to reduce organic matter and key nutrients in muck through a study using a lab setup that more closely mimics real life water bodies than any previous study. Read the full study or learn more about the details below.
