      Assumptions

      I'm attaching the article in "Koi Nations" magazine from June-July 2007 in .pdf format. What's wrong with Michael's assumptions?

      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      Okay.....I'll play:

      "With such a critical role in a pond's lifecycle...."

      1. What IS the "lifecycle" of a pond?

      2. How can one know *where* their pond lies within this lifecycle?

      3. What IS the "critical role" that Koi clay provides?

      That would be the crux of my questions.

      The point I want to make is that adding a tablespoon full of bentonite / montmorillonite clay to a gallon of water might change the parameters a little, but adding two tablespoons to 1,000 gallons wouldn't change the pH or hardness at all. All the minerals listed are major minerals and the life in the pond receive them from their food and other sources. It's the trace elements which bentonite / montmorillonite clay contains that are lacking in our water that make the difference. And of course the ability of the clay to bind toxins is also very important.

      All of the clays used in the test are good. Refresh which is now KoiNendo is the most pure at 98% whereas the others are 95% pure.
