avaquatix Algae Rid

IMPORTANT CAUTION: 

Do not exceed the treatment directions or dosage as indicated or it will harm fish and plants. 

AQUARIUM BASICS MEDICATED CARE: 

When adding any form of chemicals whether it is medicated or water treatment great care must be taken to insure that you do not harm any plants or fish. Make sure that you correctly diagnose the given problem and treat it with the correct product. Most aquarium treatments take time to take effect. Do not be tempted to exceed treatment instruction to speed up cure. It will have the opposite effect. Be patient and give it time.

WHAT CAUSES ALGAE IN FRESHWATER AQUARIUMS

Algae is caused by an imbalance of nutrients and lighting in your aquarium. Plants need just the right amount of lighting and nutrients for optimal growth. If you give them too much light and not enough nutrients as building blocks to grow, the algae will take advantage of the excess light and multiply. If you provide a lot of nutrients but not enough light (which regulates how fast plants can utilize the nutrients), then algae will take advantage of the extra nutrients. Balancing a tank is nearly impossible - plants grow and the amount of nutrients changes on a daily basis which in turn means that your light  has to increase or decrease.

BETTER BALANCE - 

Increased plant growth does not necessarily eliminate algae. To balance the aquarium, put your lighting on a timer, and then gradually increase or decrease your nutrient levels with fertilizer and water changes.

DO NOT MAKE DRASTIC CHANGES AND EXPECT QUICK RESULTS - 

The truth is making multiple or drastic changes all at once will result in a greater imbalance as it takes at least two to three weeks to see any difference in your plants and determine whether or not your actions helped balance the aquarium.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Add 1ml per 100 litres (one drop per 5 litres) of water per day for 10 consecutive days.  If algae dies before 10 days then treatment should be stopped or else an overdose will weaken or kill higher plants or ornamental fish.

Only use the product as specified. Handle with care. Keep out of reach of children and uninformed persons. Avoid skin and eye contact. Wash with running water. Eye contact wash with running water for 15 minutes. Harmful if swallowed. If swallowed, induce vomiting and seek medical help immediately.  Do not overdose since product overdose is toxic to fish.
