MICROBE-LIFT® FISH FOOD
The most trusted name in ponds and watergardening!
Another Superior Product from Ecological Laboratories
MICROBE-LIFT® FISH FOOD
Contains Antibiotics to PROTECT Your Koi and Goldfish
Probiotics (DFM): Direct-fed microbials (DFM) began in the early 1950’s when researchers observed a positive growth response in animals fed with antibiotics. Chickens that were fed small amounts of antibiotics mixed in with their food were healthier and grew faster than the test group not fed antibiotics! This led researchers to theorize that intestinal microflora may play a role in health and vitality of animals kept in close quarters and exposed to germs and viruses. Continued research has determined that a delicate balance exists in the intestinal tract between beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria. It was found studying cold water fish, that the balance of these 2 bacterial groups in the fish’s intestines is an important factor which can be upset by stresses, such as shipping, changes in diet, water quality, water temperature, environment and the addition of new aquatic life. If the beneficial intestinal bacteria decreases, and the harmful bacteria increases, a fish will get sick and will be in a very weakened state prone to disease and death. This is especially risky if this happens before going into the winter hibernation state which is stressful and cause winter kill of your weakened Koi and Goldfish.
Koi and goldfish have no stomach! They use their intestinal tract for digestion. It is important that enzyme producers survive and germinate there. Because of their efficient enzyme production and other metabolite producing capabilities for intestinal tract conditions, Ecological Laboratories, Inc. has specifically selected two strains of Bacillus (B. subtilis and B. licheniformis) for inclusion in all of its fish foods. We call them Nature’s Building Blocks.
FDA (USA) and EU (European Union) Approved: These bacteria have been tested for 1) strain stability, 2) efficacy and 3) safety. Extensively studied, they were found to be genetically stable, non-genetically modified, produce no toxins, and being naturally occurring organisms, environmental impact studies show these strains pose no threat to the environment. In short they are safe and good for your fish.

Probiotics also show the following characteristics:

- • Form spores to survive extrusion conditions.
- • Produce naturally occurring nonpathogenic microorganisms.
- • Utilize large numbers of carbohydrates for growth.
- • Produce and secrete a variety of relevant enzymes, e.g. protease, lipase and amylase which break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats into smaller, more easily digested nutrients used for growth, health and vitality!

THE MICROBE-LIFT 7-DAY NUTRITIONAL FEEDING SYSTEM

Dr. Carl Webster

Fact: This is the finest cold-water fish food formula on the market today for professional Koi and Goldfish keeping. Manufactured from the highest quality ingredients selected for optimum growth and the latest technology available for digestibility and color enhancement, all these fish foods contain the lowest ash content.
Formulation History: Dr. Carl Webster has served as our consultant in the formulation of the Microbe-Lift 7-Day Nutritional Feeding System. Dr. Webster is currently a professor at Kentucky State University, one of the top aquaculture research centers in the United States, and is also a principal investigator for aquaculture nutrition.
Education: In addition to earning his Ph.D. in Aquaculture (finfish and crustacean nutrition) from Auburn University in 1989, Dr. Webster received his B.A. in Zoology from Drew University in 1982 and his Master’s degree in Herpetology from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville in 1984.
Research Focus: Dr. Webster’s research is focused on: clarifying the nutritional requirements of aquaculture species with actual or potential economic importance to the United States; designing and implementing basic and applied nutritional experiments on finfish and crustacean aquaculture species; designing and developing a finfish and crustacean nutrition program; and assisting interested producers and feed mills in formulation of nutritious, economically viable aquaculture diets. Currently, Dr. Webster is working on crustacean/finfish nutrition and diet formulation.
About Koi and Goldfish: Classified as “omnivores”, those who eat foods derived from plants or animals. Koi will eat practically anything humans will! It’s important to make sure your koi and pond fish get fed a daily diet that is well balanced. The Microbe-Lift 7-Day Nutritional Feeding System will achieve maximum health benefits by providing the highest levels of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water (moisture content), thereby strengthening the fish’s immune system and enabling the fish to produce needed body heat, energy and growth. Due to their individual size, sex, environment and genetic make-up, each koi has its own individual nutritional requirements. In general, Koi are ravenous feeders and will consume a lot of food in short periods. So while it is important to feed them at least twice a day, morning and evening, smaller and more frequent feedings are the preferred method.

Microbe-Lift®
High Growth & Energy
Primary Food - 3 Days a Week

In the late spring when the warmer temperatures arrive, koi and goldfish need a boost of protein for growth since they have depleted their fat reserves over the winter. In the fall, a higher protein diet is also required since pond fish need to bulk up in preparation for their winter fast. Use this feed at a minimum temperature of 68F (20C). Pond fish really start to grow at this temperature.

Cold  Weather Food

Our formula is made with lesser amounts of protein and wheat germ which is easily digested and also contains a higher level of fats.

* Some states have bans on certain pond plants. Check the USDA Noxious Plants website prior to purchase. The buyer needs to beware of any regulations on plants that may be restricted. If your order gets confiscated by your state agriculture department we cannot be held responsible.

** We guarantee our plants will arrive alive and healthy. Pond Plants grow differently depending on where you live. If you took pond plants of the same type, and planted them in different parts of the USA, each plant would grow differently. This is Mother Nature at work. We cannot guarantee that your climate will support long term growth as this varies by location. Over time and experience you will find which pond plants thrive in your USDA Zone. Perhaps the best thing to do is to join our Pond, Watergarden and Plant Forum and ask some questions before you buy.

*** We reserve the right to substitute Out of Stock plants of equal or greater value unless you specifically request otherwise in the remarks section of your order you submit. We try our very best to update the website availability and show plants that are Out of Stock.
