According to a 2017 Google survey conducted by Mars Fishcare, 100% of pond owners asked were concerned for their pets safety when using water treatments in their garden ponds. API Pond has good news for fellow pond enthusiasts: API will relaunch their water treatments, which not only keep ponds clean, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing, but will also be 100% safe for four-footed pets!

For over 50 years, API has been an aquatics industry leader in making water conditions safe for fish and plants to thrive, so it is only fitting that API has adopted the Mars Petcare mission of making "a better world for pets". API combines the great reputation of Aquarium Pharmaceuticals with the promise of Mars Petcare mission. API Pond treatments utilize innovative, research-driven solutions that make it easy to care for your pond. Most importantly, all API Pond treatments are non-toxic to pets, so if pond keepers use API Pond products and have a dog or cat that drinks from their pond, no harm will follow.

"The quality of API promises great results to hobbyists, along with the guarantee that our products are safe for pets and wildlife," says Gary Jones, R&D Manager at Mars Fishcare. "We wouldn't be abiding by the Mars Petcare mission of creating a better world for pets if we neglected to consider their safety and well-being in the development of our products."

Treatments included in the API Pond line are Melafix, Pimafix, Stress Coat, Algae Cure, AmmoLock, Accu-Clear, Pond-Zyme, and Ecofix, all of which aid in maintaining healthy, clear ponds throughout the pond season.

API Pond water treatments are available in pet and aquatics shops across the U.K.
