Boyd Chemiclean Red Slime Cyano Bacteria Remover Information




Cynobacteria is usually encouraged with the presence of nitrate and ammonia, which are both fixed forms of nitrogen. Chemi-clean 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 Chemi-Clean. Place airstone in the aquarium prior to and during treatment.

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.

Comments: I have found the Chemiclean product to work as it says it does every time something goes out of whack and the dreaded RED algae(bacteria)starts up. I have many SPS & LFS corals as well as fish and inverts, and the product has never hurt any of them.

Comments: All my parameters are optimum pretty much all of the time. This time I just could not get the Cyano under control. I am very much against dosing my reef with any type of medication. I battled for months through water changes, syphoning, under feeding, removing carbon dosing, and then finally broke down and ordered Chemiclean. I followed the directions exactly along with aeriating like crazy and the only thing I lost was the Cyano. My tank is back to sparkling and all of the SPS look more brillant than ever! I couldn't be more pleased. The only downside is that you can't use your skimmer for several days after treatment, but I will take that little inconvenience over the Red Slime any day!

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.

Cyano GONE

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!
