This product is safe for use in aquariums and ponds and will not interfere with biological filtration or its bacteria. When AmQuel Plus detoxifies ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and other organic compounds, it breaks the molecules apart. Consequently, the nitrifying bacteria do not know the difference and eat the parts, just as they would the whole original compounds.
Important things not affected by Amquel plus
AmQuel Plus is harmless to
- invertebrates (including corals and sea anemones), and
- other aquatic life forms.
Particularly, AmQuel Plus is very useful is in its detoxification of all nitrates in the water. The natural populations of bacteria in the aquarium (fresh or salt water) and pond water are usually insufficient for this job. In the past the only way to get rid of nitrates from aquariums and ponds was by water changes. Now this can be done in a few minutes with AmQuel Plus. This leaves the main reason for making water changes (now needed less frequently) to replacing trace elements in the water.
AmQuel Plus is recommended to be used in concurrence with Kordon’s NovAqua Plus. This is because they mainly do different functions. Consequently, they collectively are needed in aquarium and pond keeping. NovAqua Plus is most important for treating tap water that comes from public water utilities. Such water has accumulated toxic metals from water pipes. Hence, this product provides health aids to the fishes and aquatic invertebrates.
conclusively, AmQuel Plus is compatible with all Kordon water conditioners, organic preventatives and treatments, and water clarifiers.
