AmGuard™ safely, rapidly and efﬁciently removes toxic free ammonia. It is safe to use during tank cycling and is ideal for treating emergency situations. AmGuard™ is the strongest liquid ammonia binder on the market. It works within minutes to detoxify free ammonia, and it doesn’t degrade for nearly forty-eight hours. That’s nearly twice as long as our competitors’ products. Unlike competing products, AmGuard™converts it into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily removed by the tank’s biofilter. It does not alter pH. Ammonia can exist in two 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. For long term ammonia control, use Seachem Stability® and Matrix™. Use Ammonia Alert® or MultiTest™: Free & Total Ammonia to directly monitor levels of free ammonia. AmGuard™ also removes chlorine and chloramines.
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 200 L (50 US gallons) daily or as needed to reduce ammonia.
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.
CaribSea AmmoBuster Extreme Water Conditioner 8oz.
AmmoBuster™ Extreme is the one step water conditioner that does it all! AmmoBuster™ Extreme will not only eliminate ammonia, chlorine and chloramine, but detoxify heavy metals, even copper, as well. At the same time, AmmoBuster™ Extreme will replace a fishes protective “slime coat”, add essential electrolytes, boost alkalinity, and reduce fish stress.
AmmoBuster™ Extreme even neutralizes nitrite!
AmmoBuster™ Extreme is ideal for handling high ammonia levels in newer aquariums where the waste reducing bacteria populations are not yet adequate.
Works instantly to help remove deadly chlorine and chloramine from tap water.
Locks up toxic ammonia produced by decomposing plants, algae, fish waste, dead fish, and uneaten food.
Eliminates fish stress and promotes healthy gill function.
One teaspoon will instantly rid a 10 gallon aquarium of 5.0 ppm ammonia, 5.0 ppm chlorine, and 2.0 ppm chloramine.
Safe for all fish, invertebrates, and plants and can be used with all medications including methylene blue, malachite green, and acriflavine.
Will not alter pH or deplete the oxygen levels. Does not contain any copper or formaldehyde.
