Hikari® Ultimate® is a full-function water conditioner for freshwater and marine aquariums. Everything you need to maintain a superior environment for your fish is here in one bottle! For new setups, Ultimate® instantly "ages" water, allowing your pets to acclimate more quickly and eliminating the danger of toxic chloramine, ammonia, chlorine, heavy metals or nitrite.
Add 1 teaspoon (5 mL) per 10 gallons. Use for (1) new aquariums or ponds, (2) after or during water additions/changes, or (3) before adding new fishse, amphibians, invertebrates or plants. For larger applications, use 1 ounces per 60 gallons.
Perform regular water changes to keep alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable. Use as needed to eliminate and control ammonia. Use a salicylate (indolphenol) type total ammonia test kit. For dissolved oxygen testing, use either a DO meter or an indigocarmine test.
Do not with permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatments. Nessler's total ammonia test will give false, high (or off-scale) readings. Winkler dissolved oxygen test will give false, low (or zero) readings.
ClorAm-X™, electrolytes, buffers and a proprietary polymer formula in aqueous solution.
