Directions for Use:
Shake well before using. Minimum dose 5 ml (1/2 capful) per 10 gallons of water. Re-Fresh should be added on a weekly basis to help maintain a clear, clean and sparkling aquarium.
Caution: Re-Fresh may be harmful to snails and shrimp. Do not overdose on tanks containing these organisms. Wait 5 to 7 days after final dosing to add these organisms.
Directions for using
Waste-Away for removing cyanobacteria from your marine aquarium.
- Manually remove as much of the cyanobacteria (slime algae)/algae as possible by siphoning, netting and micro filtration. Make sure your aquarium has a protein skimmer and good aeration before proceding.
- Add DrTim's
Re-Fresh every 2 days and wait 2 days in between dosages. Use 2 to 3 times at a dosage of 5 ml per 10 gallons aquarium water. Reef tank owners - beware that high doses of Re-Fresh may harm snails and shrimp at very high doses so these organisms should be removed from the aquarium.
- 48 hours after the last dosing of Re-Fresh, dose the aquarium with
Waste-Away. Start with a half-dose (5ml per 10 gallons). Wait 2 days or until the water is clear and add another 1/2 dose. If there are a lot of organics in the system you may experience cloudy water. This is a sign that the beneficial bacteria are working but also a sign to proceed cautiously because too much of a bacterial bloom can lower the oxygen to dangerous levels. 48 hours after the 2nd dosing of waste-away or when the water clears add a full dose on the waste-away.
Continue to add Waste-Away every 2 to 3 days (watching for any cloudiness) for 2 weeks. Generally at the end of this 4 week period of adding Re-FRESH and Waste-Away the tank will be clean and there will be a noticeable improvement in water clarity and cleanliness of the substrate.
Once the aquarium is looking better Waste-Away should be added on a routine basis - at least every month. However, it is important for you to evaluate the reasons for the organic build-up in the aquarium in the first place. Is it the result of overfeeding, over-population, lack of routine cleaning? To save yourself continued headaches a critical self-evaluation of the causes is warranted and action needed.
