Seachem Aquavitro Alpha 350ml

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

A paramount factor in the proper maintenance of an aquarium is the dilution of accumulated waste by scheduled water changes. This requires the removal of chlorine or chloramine or both from the new water. With the advent of chloramine, thiosulfate has proven inadequate, causing the release of ammonia. At acid or neutral pH, this is not of serious consequence. However, at alkaline pH it can be devastating, particularly if the tap water is heavily treated with chloramines.

A paramount factor in the proper maintenance of an aquarium is the dilution of accumulated waste by scheduled water changes. This requires the removal of chlorine or chloramine or both from the new water. With the advent of chloramine, thiosulfate has proven inadequate, causing the release of ammonia. At acid or neutral pH, this is not of serious consequence. However, at alkaline pH it can be devastating, particularly if the tap water is heavily treated with chloramines.

Alpha™ is a concentrated conditioner for saltwater. It is 50% more active than our Prime™ and 375% more active than the next closest competitor. alpha™ removes chlorine, chloramine and ammonia. It converts ammonia into a safe, non-toxic form that is readily utilized by beneficial bacteria and reef inhabitants such as clams. alpha™ may be used during tank cycling to alleviate ammonia/nitrite toxicity. alpha™ detoxifies nitrite and nitrate, allowing the biofilter to more efficiently remove them. alpha™ also promotes the production and regeneration of the natural slime coat on fish. alpha™ is non-acidic and will not impact pH, nor will it over activate skimmers. Use at start-up and whenever adding or replacing water.

Directions

Use the included pipette for dosing. Filled to the base of the bulb, the pipette holds 1 mL. 1 mL treats 60 L (15 gallons*)This dose removes approximately 0.8 mg/L ammonia, 1.2 mg/L chloramine, or 3.3 mg/L chlorine. alpha™ may be added to the aquarium directly, but it is best if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume.

Sulfur odor is normal.

For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used.

To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 4 times a normal dose may be used.

If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.

Note: The aquavitro cap offers multiple dosing solutions depending on the size of your system.

Each inner cap thread is approximately 2 mL. The inner cap contains 7 mL, while the outer ring contains 28 mL (35 mL when both are filled to the level of the inner cap.) When filled to the top, the cap contains 49 mL.

Please be aware that this product is only available for collection in store.

Orders over £30 are Delivered FREE!

Providing none of the items in your order require pallet delivery or are excluded from delivery promotions, we will give you free standard delivery. You can still upgrade this service if you wish, and will only pay the difference.

 

Pallet Deliveries are different.

For items that have to be sent by insured pallet or other special delivery, these are excluded from the standard delivery offer and instead follow a different system. Pallet deliveries are split into 2 tiers: tier 1 and tier 2. Pallet deliveries take 2-4 working days and cannot be tracked.

 

For pallet deliveries we will contact you to confirm the delivery address and delivery day before releasing the order.

 

Please note that the pallet delivery service is a drop at kerb only service, the drivers are not insured to handle goods into homes and you are required to dispose of the pallet.

 

Pallet Tier 1

This tier is for solo tanks and cabinets, or other solo high weight products that we can't send by a normal courier. We subsidies the majority of the true delivery cost for these items to offer the best value we can. The shipping cost for these is calculated at checkout.

 

Pallet Tier 2

New for 2020! We are proud to announce we now offer FREE mainland UK pallet deliveries for Pallet Tier 2. Pallet Tier 2 is for the larger full tank and cabinet sets, such as the beautiful Juwel Rio, Lido, Trigon and Vision ranges.
