Microbe-Lift’s Aqua XTreme is a liquid, single-phase, full-function pond water conditioner formulated for use in koi ponds. It should be used when conditioning new water for ponds, adding (or prior to adding) water, new fish or plants to ponds and transporting koi and goldfish. It is important to use Aqua XTreme when adding water to a pond that contains chloramines as it will detoxify both the chlorine and the ammonia in chloramines.
Perform regular water changes to keep alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable.
Use as needed to help eliminate and control ammonia at the regular dosage rate for each 1mg/L, or fraction thereof, of measured total ammonia for each 0.85 mg/L of measured total ammonia-nitrogen.
Please Note: Do not use with a permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatment. Nessler’s total ammonia test kits will give a false high or off scale reading. Winkler’s dissolved oxygen test will give a false low or zero reading.
Microbe-Lift/Aqua Xtreme label states “Please Note- Do not use with a permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatment…” This is due to the permanganate- or chlorite-based chemicals having the capacity to break down part of the polymerization process necessary to remove chlorine-ammonia-nitrite and heavy metals from your pond water.
*Wait 48 hours between the use of Microbe-Lift/Aqua Xtreme and the use of any Pond Fish Treatments containing ingredients you have doubts about. (i.e. – potassium permanganate, hydrochloric acid, etc)
