  • Our breakthrough formula adds missing nutrients back into the water for healthier plants and fish.

What is Nualgi?

Nualgi is a patented liquid formulation which is dosed into ponds once a week. It is effective within hours of dosing. Nualgi contains nano-scale micronutrients (5-100nm) required for multiplication of the ubiquitous and beneficial diatoms in any water body. Nualgi contains Si, Fe, Mn, Ca, Mg, Zn, Cu, B, S, Mo, P,K and Co.

How does it work?

Nualgi causes a controlled and sustainable growth of beneficial diatoms. Diatoms are special types of algae that live inside 'glass houses' - they have hard outer shells made of silicon and oxygen, the same elements that make up glass. These outer casings are made of two half cylinders that fit together like a jewelry box. Inside this shell is a single celled organism that photosynthesizes, releasing Oxygen. The Oxygen is used by aerobic bacteria to break down organic matter. Higher DO levels result in tangible changes like cleaner water, reduction in BOD, lower coliform levels, elimination of foul odor, reduction in mosquito colonies in water and healthier aquatic life. Nualgi eliminates the use of UV filters thus saving costs. It is also a substitute for algae control products and water clarifiers.

Why Diatom Algae?

Diatoms are responsible for almost one fourth of the oxygen produced on Earth. There was no life on the planet before diatoms came into existence. Because of their glass like structure, they need less light to photosynthesize and therefore photosynthesize faster and earlier in the day, outcompeting filamentous algae like the harmful Blue Green algae (BGA) or green algae for nutrients such as N and P. Highly mobile, Zooplankton feed on the diatoms and the fish feed on zooplankton thus completing the natural food chain in a healthy water body. The organics exit the water in the form of fish biomass.

What are the specific changes that Nualgi causes in water?

1 liter of Nualgi releases 100 to 500 kgs of Oxygen, Produces 100 to 500 kgs of Diatoms, Consumes 8 to 40 kgs of N and 1 to 6 kgs of P, Consumes 150 to 700 kgs of Co2

Dosing Nualgi in your Pond:

I ml of Nualgi is applied to 1000 gallons of water once a week. Shake the bottle well before dosing. Nualgi mixes very easily in water, mechanical mixing is not required. Nualgi is dosed by diluting in the pond water and poured in the accessible parts along the periphery of the pond or directly into the filter or skimmer. As diatoms are most active early in the morning, it is recommended that Nualgi be dosed at dawn, once a week. UV should be unplugged while using Nualgi. Nualgi promotes a natural balance in your ponds by promoting the growth of diatoms, beneficial bacteria, microbes and plankton. UV kills diatoms and other beneficial organisms and can also alter their ability to reproduce. Balancing the pond can take anywhere from 3 to 70 days depending on the starting point as regards the population of beneficial organisms. If the pond has been previously treated with UV or Algaecide, then dosing of beneficial bacteria and some additional oxygenation via air stones along with Nualgi will speed up the process of restoring the pond to a natural balance. If results are not seen in 4 weeks, please provide your pond information using this link Once the pond is clear and fish are active then dose Nualgi only as needed.

Toxicity, Precautions and Side Effects:

Nualgi has been tested to be non-toxic as per APHA (2012) and OECD (1992).Nualgi has no impact on humans and is even safe if small amounts are consumed accidentally. Overdosing will cause excess diatoms and water will turn brown. Nualgi has no side effects when dosed in water. Beneficial bacteria, zooplankton and fish grow in a healthy manner in ponds and lakes dosed with Nualgi.
