NovAqua Pond - 1 gallon
Item # 214357 / Manufacturer Part # 31011
NovAqua is a unique combination of chemical compounds and inorganic salts that produce highly desirable effects in freshwater and marine systems.
It provides a protective colloid coating on the fish's body during injury. It utilizes a unique system for supplying fishes with a protective synthetic film "slime coating" which forms rapidly on damaged areas. The action of this coat provides a barrier against serious loss of internal fluids and electrolytes and protects damaged areas of the body against external toxins and disease causing organisms.
It neutralizes chlorine, iodine and chloramine, buffers freshwater, detoxifies heavy metals, increases available electrolytes and reduces toxicity of nitrite.
Treats 7,680 gallons of water.
The use of Pond NovAqua is suggested for the following conditions at the rate of 1 teaspoon per 10 gallons of water:
New Aquariums: Use at recommended dosage. Add to the water when setting up a new tank, before the fish are added. Add to new water each time a water change is made. If water is suspected of containing chloramines (a complex of chlorine and ammonia) or ammonia, the following procedure should be used to protect your fish and invertebrates:(1) Add NovAqua to protect the fish from stress, add a protective slime coat and prevent shock; (2) Add Kordon's AmQuel® to remove ammonia and chloramines from the water.
Fish and invertebrate shipping/receiving: Pond NovAqua can be added to the shipping water before fish or invertebrates are shipped and after receiving. The use of Pond NovAqua will reduce stress, osmotic shock and possible chemical poisoning. The use of Pond NovAqua also reduces the probability of infection and increases the chances of recovery. It is recommended that Kordon's AmQuel also be added to shipping water to reduce toxic effects of free ammonia during shipping.
Fish transport from shops: The use of Pond NovAqua will reduce stress and osmotic shock. Use at the recommended dosage (10 drops will treat 1 gallon). Add to the water in plastic bags containing the fish before transporting from shop to home aquaria.
Transportation of Aquarium plants: Mix a solution of Pond NovAqua as directed under "Suggested Usage". Dip each plant into the solution. Wrap for shipment. Pond NovAqua acts as a humectant, holding moisture in the plants over extended periods of shipment.
Field collections: Fewer losses will be incurred due to stress, osmotic shock and chemical poisoning if newly captured specimens are transferred immediately to water pretreated at the normal dose with NovAqua.
Contains a buffering system, synthetic polymers, reducing agents (dechlorinators), electrolytes, product stabilizers, Edetates for heavy metals removal. Note: None of the NovAqua products, now or in the past, contain any phosphates.
