Zeolite Ammonia Remover is a natural ammonia-removing mineral for use in freshwater aquariums. It works well in both newly set-up aquariums to help prevent "new tank syndrome" and in established aquariums to prevent sudden "surges" in ammonia. Zeolite Ammonia Remover is fully rechargeable and works in all types of freshwater aquariums.Ammonia in the Aquarium:
Ammonia is a common and very toxic waste product in aquariums. Aquarium fish continuously release ammonia. Urine, solid waste and uneaten fish food also release ammonia as they decompose. Nitrifying bacteria in the biological filter convert toxic ammonia to nitrite (also toxic) and then to relatively harmless nitrate. This process is called the nitrogen cycle. Newly set-up aquariums do not have enough nitrifying bacteria to keep ammonia at safe levels. It can take 4 to 6 weeks for the nitrifying bacteria to become established and form an efficient biological filter. It is during these first weeks that most aquarists experience fish loss due to high ammonia levels. Elevated ammonia levels damage the gills of fish, preventing oxygen uptake. Even very low levels of ammonia can cause detrimental metabolic changes, leading to a greater susceptibility to disease. Even in established aquariums, ammonia can be a problem. Each time a new fish is added to an aquarium, the biological filter must adjust to the higher level of waste being produced. When medications and remedies are used, the biological filter is often disrupted. Under these conditions, ammonia can reach harmful levels. Zeolite Ammonia Remover is a very efficient medium for completely removing ammonia waste and greatly improving water quality for freshwater aquarium fish.Directions for use in RENA® FilStar Filters:
- Remove Zeolite Ammonia Remover pouch from plastic bag.
- DO NOT open Zeolite Ammonia Remover pouch. One 350 g pouch should be used for every 55 U.S. gallons (208 L) of aquarium water.
- It is important to rinse Zeolite Ammonia Remover pouch under tap water to remove any dust.
- Place filter pouch directly in FilStar filtration basket after (above) filter foams.
- Recharge filter pouch every 5 days until safe levels are reached. Then, recharge every 2 weeks to maintain best performance.
- Replace pouch every 1 to 3 months, depending on stocking density and water quality.
Use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Test Kits to monitor water quality weekly. Zeolite Ammonia Remover is designed for use with other Filstar filtration media.Recharging Zeolite Ammonia Remover:
Zeolite Ammonia Remover can be easily recharged in a warm salt solution. Dissolve 80 g (4 tablespoonfuls) of non-iodized salt in 240 ml (8 ounces) of warm tap water (approximately 48°C/120°F), soak the pouch for at least 2 hours and rinse lightly in tap water before re-use. Zeolite Ammonia Remover will gradually become fouled with organic matter, and therefore should be replaced when performance declines.
