Kent Marine Ammonia Detox 16 oz. Information




Description:
Ammonia Detox is the premier product for ammonia removal for tap or aquarium water! It is much stronger than competing products and is safer too. Some competing products contain toxic formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is more toxic than ammonia, and if too much is used, the results can be disastrous. Ammonia Detox is safe, even when overdosed! It neutralizes ammonia, chlorine and chloramine, instantly preparing tap water for immediate addition to the aquarium. Unlike some similar products, Ammonia Detox is even safe for sensitive hard and soft corals, anemones and other invertebrates, as well as freshwater and marine fish and plants. Use when preparing tap water for new aquariums, making water changes, or adding water to make up for evaporation. Ammonia Detox is safe to use directly in all freshwater and marine aquariums, including coral mini-reefs and also water gardens to neutralize toxic ammonia, as well. If the bacteria bed of an aquarium is accidentally killed by overuse of antibiotics, or other factors, Ammonia Detox will bind toxic ammonia, providing time to relocate the fish and invertebrates or to obtain other filtration media. In cases where too many fish are added too quickly, Ammonia Detox will bind ammonia until the existing bacteria multiply sufficiently to handle the ammonia. Ammonia Detox is also valuable for binding nitrites in fry rearing systems, where filtration cannot be used.

Directions:
Add one teaspoon (1 capful or 5ml) per 20 gallons (40 liters) of tap water to remove chloramine, ammonia, and chlorine. Allow ten minutes, before testing for ammonia.

Considerations for use:
In many areas, water departments are using chloramines, a complex of chlorine and ammonia to prolong the chlorine action in killing bacteria. If chloramine is present, Ammonia Detox will neutralize it, making the water safe for aquatic animals. No other treatment is required. If your tap water only contains chlorine (not chloramine), you can use Kent Chlorinex at a lower cost, instead of this product.Ammonia Detox is designed to treat up to 6 ppm of chlorine or 3 ppm chloramines. This is equivalent to 1 ppm ammonia, as read on an ammonia salicylate test kit. Some small amount of ammonia (i.e. .2 to .3 ppm) may still be read on the test kit even though it is all bound up, and the water is safe (Test kits based on Nessler`s reagent will give a false positive reading, do not use these). It is possible that your municipality puts more than 3 ppm chloramines into the water. If this is the case, simply increase the dosage. If you are in doubt, it is a good idea to test the ammonia level, prior to introducing animals into the water.

Comments: This product is dangerous to me.. I used this product when I bought a new 10 gallon tank. Yes, it kept the water clean but within two weeks of putting the detox in the tank, about 70% of my fish died. They're fins, gills and scales started disintegrating. As well as one of my plecostomus's died quickly and one of my frogs feet is completely gone. They were 100% healthy before using this detox in the tank. It is not that I put too much either, considering I followed the amount I was told on the bottle. The amount of drops seemed too high so I put 15 drops less. I am pretty positive that this product was the reason I lost so many fish. I now have to buy a new filter, rocks, accessories, fish and a new cleaner for the tank.

Comments: This is the best product on the market for fresh or salt water tanks. Binds the ammonia and chlorides on contact. If you ever get an ammonia spike , and we all do, you add it immediately and the situation gets under control and gives you more than enough time to begin those water changes. You cannot overdose with this product. I also use it with every water change .

Comments: I've been using this product to condition my tap water for many months. My tap water has chlorine, chloramide, and ammonia in it. (I don't know if it contains heavy metals or not.) I haven't had a single fish death due to water quality. In addition, although my tanks are fully cycled, occasional disequilibria resulting in the presence of ammonia and nitrite and surges in nitrate undoubtedly occur. I credit frequent partial water changes with this product with neutralizing potential toxins. I use a capful per 5 gallons (20 liters).
