Aqua One ChemiZee (Zeolite)
This product is unavailable
Aqua One ChemZee can be used in all types of filtration for freshwater or saltwater aquariums.
Zeolite is a natural mineral formed when volcanic ash settles on water beds such as oceans or lakes, where a chemical reaction with saltwater forms a glass stone like substance. Zeolite is highly porous, allowing water to pass through the stone where a chemical exchange takes place. Highly charged Ions from the Zeolite, exchanged with Ammonia (NH4) in the water, resulting in the removal of the Ammonia in the water.
The biological cycle of your aquarium creates a process where excess food, fecal matter and urea results in the natural generation of Ammonia. Ammonia high concentrations becomes lethal to aquatic animals and therefore it is necessary to monitor Ammonia concentrations by using a NH4 test kit. Aqua One ChemiZee greatly reduces the risk of Ammonia toxicity to the aquatic animals when introduced into your filtration.
The chemical exchange properties of Zeolite using charged Ions means Zeolite has a use-by life. The life of your Zeolite can vary depending on the Ammonia concentration in your aquarium. When high Ammonia concentrations are present, the Zeolite should be replaced every few days.
Zeolite can be used all the time. It should be used in your filter and disposed / replaced when the Zeolite's life has expired.
Zeolite should be used as a preventative or treatment not as a cure for prolonged Ammonia concentrations on your aquarium.
