This product safely, rapidly and efficiently removes toxic free ammonia. It is safe to use during tank cycle and is ideal for treating unexpected emergency situations. It reacts with free ammonia within minutes and does not alter pH. Ammonia can exist in 2 forms: free and ionized. It is only the free form that is toxic. Traditional ammonia test kits convert all ammonia to free ammonia by raising ph to 12-14; at this ph AmGuard cannot function and thus a false positive reading will result. Also removes chlorine and chloramines. For freshwater or saltwater aquariums. Treats up to 5,000 gallons.

Directions: BEGINNER: Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 200 L (50 gallons*) daily or as needed to reduce ammonia. (Note: The 2 & 4 L container’s cap is 10 mL). ADVANCED: If you have an Ammonia Alert that is reading alert, then use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 400 L (100 gallons*) daily. If it reads alarm, then use 1 capful for every 200 L (50 gallons*) daily. If it reads toxic, then use 1 capful for every 80 L (20 gallons*) daily. EXPERT: If using our MultiTest: Free & Total Ammonia test kit, use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 gallons*) to remove 1 mg/L (ppm) of free ammonia. Alternatively you may employ the following formula for a variety of ammonia and water levels: 0.125AV=m (for volume in liters) or 0.5AV=m (for volume in gallons*). A=ammonia concentration in mg/L, V=the volume of water being treated and m=the volume of AmGuard™ to use in mL. For example, to remove 1 mg/L of ammonia in 100 gallons* you would use 0.5*1*100=50 mL. If water temperature is above 30 °C (86 °F) do not use.
