UltraLife Red Slime Stain Remover

Ultralife Red Slime Stain Remover is a revolutionary new product designed to solve the problem of Red Slime stains in your aquarium, and it does it effectively and safely while remaining very user-friendly. The Red slime stains that appear over time in saltwater aquariums are a challenge to deal with. Not only do they ruin the look of the tank, but they can also be harmful if allowed to build up over time. 

Ultralife Red Slime Stain Remover has been specially formulated to deal with this problem, using a secret mix of natural ingredients, supplements and biological accelerators to provide the ultimate red slime stain remover.

It’s easy to use-- simply mix a small amount of aquarium water with the appropriate amount of product using the included measuring spoon, and then add it straight into your aquarium water. There is no need to change the water or filtration system, making this a simple solution that can be done in minutes. It is completely safe for all aquariums and each box contains enough treatment for up to 300 gallons of water. The formula is safe for fish, Corals, macro-algae, and nitrifying bacteria; ensuring that your carefully maintained aquarium environment is undisturbed for maximum effectiveness.

Ultralife RSSR will accelerate the solubilization and biological digestion of organic solids. In the process, the oxygen uptake rate in your aquarium will increase as a result of this increased biological activity. It is very important that your aquarium is able to support this increased oxygen demand along with your aquatic life`s need for oxygen. Therefore we recommend increasing your O2 levels by the addition of air stones prior to and during treatment.

As with any chemicals, keep out of the reach of children.

For best results, DO NOT turn off UV Sterilizer or Ozonizer. Continuation of Protein Skimming is recommended but may require adjustment.
No need for Water changes or Removal of Carbon Filtration.

Safe for reef tanks, corals, invertebrates, desirable macro-algae, nitrifying bacteria and fish.

  • Treats up to 300 Gallons (1135 L) Net wt. .71 oz (20 grams)

No, I would not recommend this.

Didn't work for me

I bought two, enough for 3 treatment protocols (two spread 48 hours apart, as per directions.) Even after removing most of the red stuff by blasting with a turkey baster and sucking or netting it out, it has returned. The treatments seemed to slow it up a bit, but it certainly did not clear the problem. Otherwise, I followed the dirctions regarding protein skimming and aeration. The good news, I guess, is that it didn't seem to harm anything else. Good luck.

Works great with precautions

Make sure you follow the directions carefully. Im fairly certain that almost anyone who used the Red Slime Remover and experienced a negative effect didnt watch their PH levels. I currently have my Apex setup and I monitor my tank constantly. Prior to dosing the Red Slime Remover I waited till the peak of my PH swing (in the afternoon) and added a PH buffer to bring it up to 8.3. Then I dosed the Slime Remover and watched my PH levels drop dramatically. So I let it stabilize at 7.2 and then checked my Alkalinity which was at 10.25 and then added a 1/4 dose of PH buffer. This brought it back up to 8.25 and it stabilized. I repeated the second dose of the Red Slime Remover 48 hours later with the same results. Its a great product if used correctly. I hope this helps and just a precaution you should never dose anything you cant test for.

Worked Great

I'm running a 24 Gallon Nano with both soft and stony corals, as well as a large-mantled clam, fish, and crustaceans. One treatment quickly eradicated the red slime problem that had arisen from poor flow in some regions (I also added a powerhead, but that only dislodged the slime in one area). Even the water column looks super clear! No creatures were harmed besides the slime.

Red Algae Slime

I have a 220 gallon tank with about a 30 gallon sump. I use ball grass and miracle mud. I normally change 40 gallons of water once a week but I ran out of salt and had to order from my LFS, so for 5 weeks I was unable to do a water change and the red slime started to take over both the tank and sump. I ordered the Red Slime Remover and it arrived just as my salt arrived at the LFS. Instead of doing a water change, I dosed the tank with Red Slime Remover by mixing in a cup of tank water. I let it do it's thing for four days and it completely removed all the Red Slime. Then over a period of 6 days, i replaced 80 gallons of water. Now I'm back to changing 40 gallons a week and the tank is pristine. No harm to any of the corals or fish. I used one entire bottle for my treatment of the 220 gallon tank considering the live rock, clams, corals (SPS/LPS) and sump. I have used the red slime remover before but the first time on my big show tank. Red Slime Remover works every time for me but if I would have kept up with my water changes, I would not have had a problem to deal with. Note, the water in the tank will turn yellow but clears up in about 4 days, about the time when you should do a water change.

Worked great

For months, I had been fighting a losing battle against cyano in my BC29, using traditional techniques. In desperation, I tried this product, and it completely wiped out the cyano in about 48 hours, without harm to anything else in the tank. Per the instructions, I added an airstone, but left adsorbent media (carbon, GFO, Purigen) in place. On day one, the water was yellow from adding the product. By day two, the cyano was dramatically diminished, and the water was a pinkish hue, with the skimmer pulling a large amount of gunk. By day three, the water was clear and the cyano had vanished. The amount of product in the small bottle provided would appear to be practically a lifetime supply; a little goes a long way.

Scared!! But worked Great!!

I had a huge red slime issue.. Tried everything in the book before resorting to chemicals. And yes I read every review before trying this product. Having a mixed tank of sps, lps, and softies, I was really worried about using any product after reading negetive reviews. I introduced this product to my tank on Sunday night. I saw results within 2 hrs. Next day my tank was almost completely rid of red slime. I waited 2 days before doing water change. I followed directions to a T. Also, I have a 125 gal and went ahead and put in a couple of airstones although Ive read it dosnt work on tank this big. Remove skimmer cup as Ive read. All my corals are still alive and kikin! Noticed a little stress on fish, but left off lights and they seemed fine next day. I would leave lights off when using. All and all, my tank looks great! No more red slime and all is well. Would for sure recommend. Hope this helps!
