Monitors pH to maintain healthy freshwater conditions
Follow API Easy Care Guide and use the pH TEST KIT:
Taking a few minutes each week to maintain and monitor aquarium conditions is the key to a healthy aquarium. pH control is imperative to prevent the harmful effects of overly alkaline or acidic aquarium water on fish and plant life. Fish require a specific pH level to thrive. However, pH in an aquarium can fluctuate due to fish waste, addition of tap water and the build-up of natural acids. Use this kit to easily and accurately measure the pH level and maintain a healthy freshwater community aquarium. For use in freshwater aquariums.
Diagnosing fish diseases and dosing medications can be tricky and stressful for you and your fish. Aquarium Pharmaceutical's powdered medications help to take the guesswork out of treatment and make medicating your fish easier and more effective. Each medication is premeasured in multiple layer foil packets and is formulated to be quick dissolving. A full range of medications mean most ornamental fish diseases are easy to treat so you can spend more time enjoying your fish, not medicating them.
Kill highly contagious ich parasites while safely treating bite wound sites in freshwater and saltwater aquariums. Not for use with ornamental invertebrates.
Directions for Use: For best results, remove activated carbon or filter cartridge from filter and continue aeration. For each 10 gallons of water, empty one packet directly into the aquarium. Repeat dose after 48 hours. Wait another 48 hours then chance 25% of the aquarium water and add fresh carbon or replace filter cartridge. Caution: Some scaleless fish are sensitive to this medication; therefore, treat at half the normal dose. Some saltwater inverts, such as corals, may be sensitive to this product, so it is not recommended for reef aquariums. Note: This medication will cause a slight discoloration of water which can be removed with API Bio-Chem Zorb or activated carbon. This package treats up to 100 gallons. Two doses are required for full course of treatment.
In a new aquarium, harmful ammonia and nitrite build up from fish waste, often resulting in fish loss or “new tank syndrome”.The unique, patented nitrifying bacteria in QUICK START are scientifically proven to quickly consume ammonia and nitrite to help prevent “new tank syndrome.”

GH and KH in the Aquarium
Aquarists seek to provide a healthy aquarium environment by duplicating the water conditions of the natural habitats of their fish. Tap water rarely provides the water conditions necessary to maintain an optimal aquarium. Some tap water supplies have a very low KH level (below 3 °dKH). This type of water has very little pH buffering capacity and can contribute to wide pH swings in the aquarium. When water evaporates from the aquarium, it leaves behind hardness ions. Topping off with tap water simply adds more minerals to the aquarium, resulting in a steady increase in GH. It is therefore necessary to test the GH and KH frequently to monitor water quality and prevent stressful conditions from occurring. Use the table below to create the ideal water hardness levels for your aquarium fish. When keeping a community aquarium with a variety of tropical fish, adjust the GH and KH to 3° - 6° (50 - 100 ppm).
