Removes ammonia, chlorine and chlorines rapidly and completely when used as directed.
MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia Remover is buffered to help prevent a drop in both alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH when used to remove very high levels of total ammonia.
Works immediately and will not delay or interrupt biological filtration.
To remove and detoxify ammonia, chlorine and chloramines for water in aquariums or ponds add 1 teaspoonful of MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia Remover per 10 gallons (38 L) of water. To remove ammonia in existing aquariums or ponds add 1 teaspoonful of MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia Remover per 10 gallons (38 L) for each 1.0 mg/L, or fraction thereof, of measured total ammonia (= 0.85 mg/L total ammonia-nitrogen). To control ammonia in shipping fishes or invertebrates use MICROBE-LIFT/ Ammonia Remover at the standard dosage rate or increase (up to 10 times) if total ammonia levels are expected to be higher than 1.0 mg/L. It is recommended for routine shipping of fishes and invertebrates that trial, static, shipping tests are preformed to determine the typical levels of total ammonia that will occur in untreated water.
For complete water conditioning we recommend the use of MICROBE-LIFT/XTreme.
Do not use with permanganate- or chlorite-based treatments. Nessler's total ammonia test kits will give false, high (or off-scale) readings. Winkler dissolved oxygen tests will give false, low or zero readings; use indigo-carmine dissolved oxygen tests or DO meters. For total ammonia testing use only salicylate-based (indole-phenol) tests. MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia Test Strips will function properly. The MICROBE-LIFT/Ammonia Test Strips are salicylate based and work well with this product.
