The pH of the water determines the acidic or alkaline (basic) properties of your pond. Fish do best in neutral water that is neither too acidic nor too alkaline. Excessively high or low pH may be directly responsible for death from secondary causes (i.e. parasitic infections). Extreme pH changes will irritate the skin and gills of the fish.
UltraClear Buffer Block will stabilize the pH and increase water hardness and alkalinity in your pond. Low or no buffering capacity (low alkalinity & calcium carbonates) causes the pH of the pond to become unstable resulting in wide swings of the pH.
UltraClear Buffer Block adds essential calcium needed for healthy fish bone growth. It also enhances the growth and survival of beneficial bacteria for a healthy, beautiful pond. Great for snails!
INSTRUCTIONS: Buffer Block (Lg) treats ponds up to 2000 gallons. Place the Buffer Block in the main water flow of the skimmer, filter or waterfall. The large container lasts up to 3 weeks. Replace the block when dissolved.

William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.
William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.
In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
A Message to Our Customers
Like other stores, recent events have affected Tricker's including supply lines and employees. Our Team Members have been working as quickly as possible to handle your order. Being short-handed, the propagation of plants and animals has been affected. Tricker's has an energetic crew with new members who are learning all aspects of the company from how to grow the aquatic plants to packaging and shipping to you.
The store in Independence is closed to walk-in traffic because Tricker's brick-n-water store has very limited space to accommodate people. Renovations of the historic site have further limited the space.
Everyone here at Tricker's Water Gardens appreciate your patience during these trying times in our history. We have, and still are, adjusting to accommodate customers. Thank you for understanding and have a very safe and exciting year.
