Boyd Chemiclean Liquid Red Cyano Bacteria Remover Treatment - 2 oz. Information




Cynobacteria is usually encouraged with the presence of nitrate and ammonia, which are both fixed forms of nitrogen. Chemiclean helps clean and remove this problem algae through its own unique process. Most other red slime removers use purely antibiotics, namely erythromycin to take care of the algae. The use of such substances with in your aquarium can have disastrous effects upon your nitrifying bacteria and cause your tank to crash, killing the inhabitants of your aquarium.

The use of chemi-clean not only as a problem solver, when red slime is present, but as a regular maintenance procedure will help keep your water crystal clear and your tank free of unwanted cynobacteria.

For best results, turn off UV sterilizer or Ozonizer and Protein Skimmer. Remove Chemi-Pure or Carbon Filtration for 24 hours following each treatment.

It is advisable to do at least a 20% water change after full treatment.

You must use an air stone when using Chemiclean. Place airstone in the aquarium prior to and during treatment.
  • Removes disease causing red cyanobacteria (red slime) from live coral.
  • Removes red slime, black, blue-green and bubble producing algae.
  • Oxidizes trapped organic sludge and sediment.
  • Clarifies aquarium water to crystal clear.
  • Promotes ideal enzyme balance.
  • Contains no phosphates, algaecides or erythromycin succinate.
  • Safe for reef tanks, all invertebrates, desirable macro algaes, nitrifying bacteria and fish.
  • Treats up to 720 Gallons.



Manufacturer Info

Boyd Enterprises Aquarium Supplies
Boyd Enterprises was founded in 1962 by Dick Boyd, who had been working in aquarium stores since 1947 at the age of 17. He had a love and passion for building and maintaining aquariums as a hobby. Through his constant experimentation to create his own filtration techniques, he developed the world renowned Chemi-pure - the original ion filter medium. In 1955, Dick Boyd along with three others founded the first Marine Aquarium Society in the United States. In 1972, he and his wife Linda, moved into a house large enough so he could build his dream aquarium. It took two years, but by 1974 Mr. Boyd had constructed a 3,000 gallon aquarium that was home to various corals, fish and invertebrates. Boyd Enterprises strives to keep up Dick’s level of Excellence, quality and customer service.

It Works!

Comments: One of the few products that I can easily and unequivocally say that it does what it's supposed to do. Instructions are simple, the process is simple, and if you follow the instructions and give it a couple of days, it will clean out your red slime like nobody's business. No corals or livestock were harmed in the process. Your skimmer, however, will be bubbling like crazy, so be prepared to make some adjustments.

Comments: This product works well. I treated my 180 gallon reef tank due to red algae problem tank had been having for months. It took about 72 hours for all red algae to die off, so just give it time. Did not harm any corals, clams or fish.

Comments: I dealt with cyano for a VERY long time before I thought long and hard about using this product. People always say "Deal with the source and it goes away on its own" I DID EVERYTHING I could think of before adding this product to my reef since I have every valuable corals, inverts, and fish except try any for of medication. I left my skimmer on without the collection cup and added a few extra pumps for circulation and two days later... NOTHING was harmed except for the cyano... I would definitely recommend this product to any one of my friends battling cyano!!

Comments: WOW! I am very impressed. Our long established 155 Gallon tank has been plagued by cyano red algae. I was skeptical, but followed the directions to the T and within 48 hours the tank is crystal clear! The sand and rocks are completely free of the algae and it's gorgeous again. This product works! Thank you!

Comments: I fought red slime for months and tried several things before I tried Chemiclean. I followed the directions closely, added an air stone, did a water change after 48 hrs. The product worked great! All signs of slime gone, no signs of stress or harm on inverts, coral or fish. I highly recommend Chemiclean.

Comments: finally got to the point that i needed to do something about that red slime, put chemicean in and presto, all gone. only thing, i felt that the instructions were not clear about certin things. Here is what i did. 1. turn off protein skimmer and remove chemipure or any other filter media that would absorb chemiclean. 2. add chemiclean, one drop per gallon 3. wait 48hrs 4. change 10% of water 5. turn skimmer back on and put chemipure back in note: skimmer will react violently once your restart, keep working with it till you get it back on line.You may also want to turn the lights down to help weaken the red slime while your treating.
