About API Water Conditioners

It’s Smart To Be Proactive!

The best way to keep your aquarium clean is to maintain good water quality. This will help keep your fish strong and vibrant and prevent disease. Water conditioners and test kits from API can help you keep your aquarium water safe and healthy.

How Do I Maintain a Healthy Environment?

It is important to test your aquarium water weekly to ensure it stays healthy for your fish.  In addition, a bi-weekly partial water change of no more than 25% will help reduce toxic buildup, remove debris the filter missed, and replenish the oxygen available to your fish.

Feed Twice Daily and Test Water Weekly

Feed your fish twice a day, check their water temperature, and observe them to make sure they are active. You should also test water quality weekly for optimal safety. For fish to thrive, their water must closely match that of their natural environment—poor water quality can cause stress, illness and even fish loss. The 6 important parameters for healthy aquarium water are ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and water hardness (GH & KH). All of these can vary over time and are invisible to the eye.

Change Water and Restore the Ecosystem

In a closed aquarium environment, there are no natural rivers or streams to carry away debris and other waste materials. That is why you should replace 25% of your aquarium water every two weeks, making sure to add water conditioner to your tap water to make it safe for your fish. You should also change your filter media and clean your gravel monthly. Adding beneficial nitrifying bacteria with API Quick Start when you do will help restore your aquarium’s fragile ecosystem and avoid disruption.

What Do API Products Do and When Do I Use Them?

Is API Accu-clear freshwater aquarium clarifier safe for cherry shrimp?
Answer by ChewyFeb 13, 2022
The Accu-Clear can be used in tanks containing cherry shrimp.

Will this product clear up cloudy water caused by bacterial bloom?
Answer by ChewyDec 03, 2020
API ACCU-CLEAR will help to clear the cloudiness caused by bacterial blooms, but does not address the underlying cause. As a result, the cloudiness will come back quickly unless the main cause of bacterial blooms is treated.

Should the fish be removed when using this or can I use it while they are in their home?
Answer by ChewyMar 08, 2021
API Accu-Clear Freshwater Aquarium Clarifier is specifically formulated for use in freshwater ponds. You can put it directly into the pond without removing the fish.

Is this good for goldfish tank ?
Answer by ChewyJul 30, 2019
This solution is safe for all freshwater fish and plants.

It works(after a couple of days)

Being that a have absolutely not patience for metric math it was annoying to figure out how much to put in my tank. After consulting Siri I put in the recommended amount. It took two days to clear, only after a night of horribly cloudy water which may or may not have killed one of my mollies.Other than that little tragedy it did clear up after I changed the filter pad. twice.

rating accu-clear water cleaner

This did not do a thing. I am having trouble getting my water clear again. I think it may be my filters. I changed my whole house filter system, hoping that will clear it up. It has been so clear for several years then it just got cloudy. I have been using the API goldfish aquarium cleaner for years and it worked.

DO NOT by this as it will not only make your water even more cloudy but it'll turn blue and you won't be able to see through your aquarium.

This too was larger than I have ordered in the past and didn't realize it. I am so pleased that I did. It is well worth it.
