AquaCleanse removes toxic chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia. Works quickly and safely to make tap water safe for fish and invertebrates. Plus, AquaCleanse does not have an offensive smell.
Directions: Shake well before using. Use when setting up a new aquarium and with every water change. When doing a water change, it is best to add tap water to a clean bucket or trash can (don't use soap to clean the vessel). Then add the required amount of AquaCleanse, stir, and water will be ready for aquarium use. Do NOT add tap water directly to your aquarium and then add AquaCleanse. Chlorine and chloramines are deadly to fish; even a short exposure can be very harmful to your aquatic pets.
Minimum dose: Add 5 ml (1/2 capful) per 10 gallons of tap water. Stir water for 15 seconds. AquaCleanse cannot be overdosed but adding very large amounts of AquaCleanse to your aquarium may lower the pH of the water if the water is poorly buffered.
Additional important information:
New aquaria: Newly set-up aquariums typically do not have sufficient nitrifying bacteria present to handle the ammonia excreted by the fish in the water. This leads to a buildup of ammonia and, after about 2 weeks, nitrite that can kill your fish. This malady is called New Tank Syndrome (NTS). While AquaCleanse can eliminate the ammonia, we do not recommend continually adding AquaCleanse to your aquarium. Instead, add
Dr Tim's Aquatics One and Only Nitrifying Bacteria which has been scientifically formulated to quickly eliminate NTS.
Testing your water: AquaCleanse is designed to remove 2 ppm of chlorine, 3 ppm of chloramines, and 1 ppm ammonia per 10 gallons of water. If your water contains higher values of these chemicals, you will have to add more AquaCleanse. To be sure you have eliminated these toxic compounds, test your water with
chlorine and ammonia test kits. The amount of chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia in your water may vary throughout the year because your municipal water authority may add more chemicals after rainy periods or in the spring when algae tends to bloom in lakes and reservoirs.
Note: AquaCleanse is not compatible with older style ammonia test kits that use what is commonly referred to as Nessler reagents. If you use these reagents, the test result will return a false indication of high ammonia. To properly test the ammonia in your water, use test kits based on salicylate methods, or use test strips.
