**CUSTOMER NOTICE** Due to unforeseen circumstances caused by ill health, with much sadness we have decided to close Reef Lounge Aquatics. We would like to thank all our loyal customers, suppliers, family and friends who have been instrumental in growing the business and supporting us through our journey over the past 2 years. This was a very difficult decision for us to make and we would like to invite you all to a closing down sale which will begin this coming weekend. We look forward to seeing you all in the next few weeks. Best wishes The Reef Lounge team.

FRITZPRO AMM CHLOR 500GM JAR/0 (treats 0)

Regular price £19.99

In most aquariums, the biological cycle is started by introducing fish into the aquarium. The fish excrete ammonia, which acts as a food source for nitrifying bacteria.

  • Promotes fish health and reduces stress
  • Provides essential electrolytes
  • Promotes disease recovery
  • Facilitates osmoregulation

Nitrifying bacteria convert ammonia into nitrite and then nitrite into nitrate. Fritz Ammonium Chloride (NH4Cl) can be used as a source of ammonia to initiate the growth of nitrifying bacteria without the presence of animal life. Fish should not be present while using ammonium chloride.

Treats:
Aquarium ammonia concentration should be raised to 3-4 ppm before adding a source of nitrifying bacteria such as FritzZyme® or FritzZyme® TurboStart.

Be careful not to use too much ammonium chloride. Raising ammonia levels above 5.0ppm may actually slow the cycle time. One level teaspoon of ammonium chloride is approximately 4.5 grams; 4.5 grams per 100 gallons of aquarium water will create an ammonia concentration of approximately 4 ppm. Continue to monitor both ammonia and nitrite levels. Do not reapply ammonium chloride or add fish until both ammonia and nitrite levels are at or near zero concentration. Once ammonia and nitrite concentrations are at zero, you should either add a second dosage of ammonium chloride or add fish so as not to interrupt the food source of your biological filter for more than 72 hours (3 days). Safety Data: Keep out of reach of children!
