Instructions

Add 1/5 teaspoon for each 10 U.S. gallons or 1 teaspoon for each 50 U.S. gallons of aquarium water. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled.

FAQ

Should API ALGAEFIX and ECOFIX be used at the same time, or should sludge remover be added after all the API ALGAEFIX treatments are completed?

It is best to use API ALGAEFIX on its own until algae is under control.

How much API ALGAEFIX is needed per gallon?

To ensure accurate dosing of API ALGAEFIX, determine pond volume before use. Add 1 teaspoon for each 50 U.S. gallons of pond/fountain water, or ¼ cup for each 600 gallons. Thoroughly mix into pond water by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. API POND ALGAEFIX may be mixed in a bucket of the pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead algae. Once algae growth has subsided, add one dose of API POND ALGAEFIX per week, as weekly treatments will control algal growth and reduce pond maintenance.

Can API® ALGAEFIX be used in concrete fountains?

API ALGAEFIX is designed for use in synthetic-lined ponds and fountains only.

Can API ALGAEFIX be used around aquatic turtles?

API ALGAEFIX can be used in a turtle habitat. Do not use in aquariums that house crustaceans such as shrimp, crabs, or lobsters.

Is API ALGAEFIX OK to use with a Plecostomus and a Catfish in the tank?

Your fish can remain in the aquarium when you treat using API ALGAEFIX. Do not use with crustaceans.

My aquarium has been affected by a major algae bloom. Do you carry a product that kills algae, but does not kill snails?

We’d recommend API ALGAEFIX MARINE aquarium algaecide, which will not harm marine fish, corals, or invertebrates (snails).

Can this API ALGAEFIX be used with aquarium plants?

API ALGAEFIX is safe for use with aquarium plants.

Can API ALGAEFIX be used in freshwater tanks?

Their proven treatments include water conditioners and clarifiers, fish medications, pH adjusters, algaecides and quick-start solutions—all designed to keep your aquarium crystal clear and your fish happy and healthy.

Testing Is Key

Once you've started a new aquarium, the only way to keep it in perfect balance is with routine water testing. API gives you all the tools you need to create a nurturing environment for both fish and live plants. Their comprehensive Master Test Kits are tailored to freshwater, saltwater or reef environments, and individual tests for things like pH, ammonia or nitrites leave nothing up to chance.

Clearing the Water

Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water. For your turtle friends, premium floating pellets and stick treats provide multiple vitamins for a stronger, healthier shell.
