Use Directions Add 1 teaspoon (5 mL) per 60 gallons. Use for new aquariums or ponds, after or during water additions/changes, or before adding new fish, amphibians, invertebrates or plants. Excellent for use when shipping fish in bags.
Recommendations Perform regular water changes to keep alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable. Use Ultimate® as needed to eliminate and control ammonia. Use a salicylate (indolphenol) type total ammonia test kit. For dissolved oxygen testing, use either a DO meter or an indigocarmine test.
Contraindications Do not with permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatments. Nessler's total ammonia test will give false, high (or off-scale) readings. Winkler dissolved oxygen test will give false, low (or zero) readings.
Caution For aquarium use only. Keep out of reach of children. See safety data sheet for complete safety and precaution information.
