AquaCleanse - Tapwater Detoxifier

Most tap water contains considerable amounts of chlorine, chloramines and/or ammonia. These chemicals make the water safe to drink by preventing micro-organisms from growing in the drinking water. But these chemicals are toxic to fish, corals and other invertebrates and must be removed before placing animals in your aquarium.

Unlike some products that only mask these chemicals AquaCleanse destroys them completely removing these harmful chemicals from the water with no unpleasant odor!

One and Only - Nitrifying Bacteria

The key to setting up a successful aquarium is to quickly convert the fish waste to a non-toxic form. This is done by nitrifying bacteria. Under normal conditions it can take 30 to 45 days for these bacteria to become naturally established in a newly set-up aquarium. Unfortunately, during this time period, ammonia and nitrite can increase to levels toxic to fish; a condition called New Tank Syndrome. One & Only Nitrifying Bacteria accelerates the process so that you can set up a tank immediately.

Use One & Only when setting up a new tank, after a water change, cleaning your filter, when adding new fish and after a disease treatment to control ammonia and nitrite. Use as directed.
