Kordon Aquarium NovAqua Plus® Water Conditioner - 1gal Information

Treat your cloudy and dirty water quickly by simply using the Kordon Aquarium Nova Aqua Plus Water Conditioner from Pet Store. The formulation of this conditioner is superbly effective that it can detoxify your pond or aquarium tap water fast and eliminate every chlorine compound and heavy metal that it can find in your aquarium water. It destroys chloramines in the water. Its conditioning action results to a balanced alkalinity and a stable water pH level.

Besides keeping the pH and alkalinity in their right levels, this conditioner contains essential vitamins, electrolytes, slime coat enhancers and special anti-viral and anti-bacterial ingredients that are beneficial to your fish and other aquatic livestock. These ingredients strengthen their immune system and aid in the improvement of their health condition.

For aquatic fish that lost their skin slime due to illness, this formula helps them to temporarily replace the slime coat and thus protect them from further harm. It also provides them with added electrolytes to achieve osmotic balance.

  • NovAqua+ Is A Best Quality Water Conditioner For All Water Sources
  • NovAqua+ Removes Heavy Metals From Tap Water
  • NovAqua+ Dismantles Chloramines InTap Water
  • NovAqua+ Removes All Chlorine From Tap Water
  • NovAqua+ Provides Health Aids, Including Immunizers and Vitamins To Fishes
  • NovAqua+ Provides Protective Slime Coatings To Fishes
  • NovAqua+ Slime Coatings Repel Viruses and Bacteria From Fishes
  • NovAqua+ Is Compatible With All Of Kordon`s Water Conditioners and Fish Treatments
  • 1 Gallon jug - treats 7,693 gallons
Tap water may be safe for humans, but in almost all localities it is not safe for fishes and aquatic invertebrates. Tap water needs to be modified by using NovAqua+ when setting up aquariums and ponds, when making water changes, and when preparing salt water for marine aquariums.

NovAqua+ is the new generation of NovAquas, it is the latest stage of technological development in water conditioners for aquariums and ponds. NovAqua+ is the most effective of the tap water conditioners for benefiting aquatic life.  But   it goes far beyond that. NovAqua+ provides, in a single product, everything necessary to handle all of the needs when treating tap water for aquatic life (except for handling nitrogen compound removal).  For the removal of toxic nitrogen compounds ­ including ammonia/ammonium, nitrites, nitrates use Kordon`s AmQuel+ [hyperlink]. NovAqua+ is recommended to be used with AmQuel+, with which it is fully compatible. Also see NOTE ABOUT COMBINATION PRODUCTS below).

The NovAqua products for conditioning aquarium and pond water were first introduced decades ago and have been used world wide ever since, becoming a leader in water conditioners for fish and other aquatic life, both fresh and salt water.  The NovAqua products have been continually expanded and improved in performance as advances in the technology have been made and as public water conditions have changed over time.  NovAqua+ is the latest in technology and is appreciably more advanced than the original NovAqua product, being completely reformulated.

NovAqua+ provides multiple protective colloid coatings on the fish`s body to replace or reinforce the natural slime coating that is essential to counteract injury, infection, and adverse environmental exposure.

These organic polymers effectively shield wounds on fish, prevent the loss of internal fluids and electrolytes, and protect fish from external toxins and pathogens.

The skin of fishes and many aquatic invertebrates is naturally fragile. It is covered by a protective slime coating that helps keep harmful bacteria and viruses away and aids the animals in their swimming ability by reducing surface friction.  Any lessening of the slime coating, such as by abrasion and wounds can allow harmful pathogens to enter the skin. Fishes and invertebrates can sense when their slime coating is lessened or missing, and this can be very stressful to them. Fish being introduced to aquariums or ponds, or being transported, are particularly prone to losing natural slime and needing slime replacement.

NovAqua+ neutralizes chlorine and the full toxic effect of chloramines:
*   Chlorine is used in just about all municipal water supplies, for which the US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency recommends up to 4 ppm chlorine.

*   Chloramines in municipal water supplies are a very serious problem for aquarists and pond keepers. Chloramines are a combination of chlorine and ammonia that together make a chemical compound that is much more stable and highly toxic to viruses and bacteria than either is alone. Chloramines are also very toxic to fishes and aquatic invertebrates.

*   Over 50% of all municipalities in the U.S. now have chloramines added to the wate

Comments: Kordon's aquaplus water conditioner is an excellent water conditioner that does not produce suds. It is superior to similar products from API and Tetra, but also somewhat more expensive. For regular water changes it, may be overkill, but the water parameters will be excellent and crystal fish wil thank you! I use whenever I do a major water change and whenever I do re-scaping of my tanks or add a new fish. You will be able to a white cloudiness when you add it to tap water, but this is just the chlorine dissipating. I also have used it in combination with Seachem Flourish Excel and API Leafzone with no adverse effects Very go.od product which I recommend without reservation

Best There Is

Comments: I've used this for years in just about every aquarium I've dealt with including small betta tanks, amano style planted tanks, and reef systems when I couldn't get RO for one reason or another. I've liked it because it chelates heavy metals (something I haven't heard of anything else doing), and I think the vitamins, electrolytes and herbals really do help the fish live longer, healthier lives. But the one really great sucess I've had with it was that about a year ago I opened my big mouth at work one day and inherited the care and keeping of the 200 gallon reef tank. I use the term reef tank loosely. When I inherited it, the tank was a filthy disaster on the verge of total collapse, with water parameters that looked like the results from a dirty goldfish bowl, and as you can imagine, severely stressed and ill inhabitants barely hanging in there including a few fish and fewer hardy invertebrates. This tank needed a massive water change immediately, and given the size and the logistics involved there was no way I was going to manage to do that with RO water, much as I would have preferred that, so I used about 100 gallons of tap water dosed with NovAqua plus and AmQuel plus, before adding the kalkwasser and marine salt. While I'm sure just the huge water change was helpful, I credit the NovAqua plus with eliminating enough of the nasty stuff found in tap water, right down to the heavy metals that not one more of the invertebrates died after that day, and by the end of the week the fish were cruising around like nothing had happened and the remaining invertebrates were coming out, polyps started expanding again seeking the light and feeding normally.

Comments: I use this product to treat my tap water when doing regular water changes in my reef tank, as well as to provide nutrients (i.e. vitamins) to the inhabitants. While it's difficult to quantify, I would say that my livestock is doing much better due to the contents of this product. I started using it roughly a year ago -- a period when Ich would appear from time to time -- and I haven't seen Ich since then and haven't lost a fish in over a year. Overall, it's a great product.

Comments: I researched the product a great deal before I bought it, and knew it would work well. More at stake is that the Marine Depot carries it at a reasonable price. I'm also pleased that they ship quick. I had been out of the business (I worked in a fish store 30 years ago) for a long time, and am amazed by what is out there now. This makes life a lot easier. As for my experience level, I would judge myself as a returning expert, but I will select beginner because of the gap.

Comments: I've been using both the NovAqua Plus Water Conditioner and the AmQuel Plus Aditive for some time now. Both of them hold my confidence. My fish are brilliant, I've had no problems with my tank. I just recently moved my 100 gallon salt water tank from one room to another. After removing all I could and draining as much as I could. I quickly refilled mixing my salt water as I went. I feel that using the NovAqua Plus and the AmQuel Plus contributed significantly to my NOT losing a single fish. I think it helped de-stress them cause they ate normally within a couple of hours.
