How Does Boyd’s Chemi-Clean Red Algae Remover Work?

Aquarium oxygen levels MUST be increased using heavy aeration or large air stones. Turn off UV sterilizer, ozonizer, and remove Chemi-pure, or carbon during treatment. Continue using protein skimmer, although skimmer may require adjustment to prevent excessive overflow. Maintain normal water flow using pumps and powerheads. For every 10 gallons of aquarium water, dissolve one level scoop of ChemiClean into one cup of water removed from the aquarium. Pour the solution with dissolved ChemiClean back into the aquarium, dispersing evenly. Successful treatment may take up to 48 hours. After the 48 hour treatment period, perform a 20% water change. Turn on UV sterilizer, ozonizer, and replace Chemi-pure or carbon. Repeat as necessary. ChemiClean can be used monthly as a regular component of aquarium maintenance.

Cyanobacteria commonly flourish in the presence of nitrate and ammonia, which are both fixed forms of nitrogen. Chemi-clean helps clean and remove these problematic algae through its own unique process. Most other red algae removers use purely antibiotics, namely erythromycin to take care of the algae. The use of such substances with in your aquarium can have disastrous effects on your nitrifying bacteria and cause your tank to crash, killing the inhabitants of your aquarium. The use of Chemi-Clean not only as a problem solver, when red slime is present but as a regular maintenance procedure will help keep your water crystal clear and your tank free of unwanted cyanobacteria. Boyd’s ChemiClean removes disease-causing red cyanobacteria from live coral. Contains no phosphates, algaecides, or erythromycin succinate.
