API Aqua Essential removes Chlorine, Chloramine and heavy metals from your tap water instantly and also detoxifies Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate.
This product can be used in the same way as your usual dechlorinator for making tap water safe when changing water.
If Ammonia or Nitrite are detected, this product can be added to make the water safe for a period of 24 hours which will normally be enough time for your bacteria to catch up.
If using to detoxify Ammonia, Nitrite or Nitrate, add 5ml per 38 litres of aquarium water.
If using as a dechlorinator for water changes, add 5ml per 189 litres of aquarium water.
If using a bucket to add fresh water then add enough to treat the contents of the bucket.
If using a hose then add enough for the whole volume of your aquarium.
237ml Bottle treats up to 9,006L when treating tap water
473ml Bottle treats up to 17,974L when treating tap water

Tried this previously with a free sample. I like it, don't have to use loads so lasts well. VM Aquatics were the best price I have seen it. All items received well packaged and I highly recommend them. Thankyou
