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?

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.

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.

    This stuff works 110%!!!!!

    By on

    I changed the water in my 40 gallon tank that houses my 2 kissing fish. Within 3 days the water was so green that I could barely see the fish. I ordered this from Chewy and received it in 2 days. I added the correct dose at 2:45pm, and by 8:00pm that same day the water was crystal clear!!!!! I swear this product works better than any product I have used before!! HIGHLY RECOMEND!!

    Good for small ponds too

    By on

    we used this in our small (250 gal) outdoor pond and it worked very well. You only need a small amount, so we ordered this instead of the large-size for pond since it's the same chemical. Chewy's price was less than the local "boutique" pet store, even though we had to pay for delivery.

    Amazing how fast it works!

    By on

    I had over cleaned my filter and killed off all of the beneficial bacteria. Without it, algae consumed my tank. Despite multiple water changes, the water was still green. One dose of this product and the next morning the tank water was crystal clear!

    Clearer Days Ahead

    By on

    I am new to the world of fish keeping, so when my fish tank turned green I wasn’t sure what to do. I tried doing a water exchange/cleaning the tank, only to find that made it worse. I found this product and decided to give it a try. Within two days my water is clear and my fish are alive and well. I am satisfied.

    Tank Saver

    By on

    I have a 1 gal Betta fish tank and is kept growing algae. I looked online and found this. I seems to help. I do weekly water changes and change the filters every 3 weeks in addition to adding a tiny bit of this to the tank after a change of water or filter. Thank you again for another great product!

    cloudy water

    By on

    It ALWAYS turns the water cloudy and doesn’t really control the algae. Every time I use it I have to drain the water and fill it up again because the water gets super cloudy to the point where I can barely see inside!

    API Algaefix

    By on

    API trusted brand. Works good, have not had an issue myself. My only thoughts are the external measuring device. If your tank is high sometimes it's hard not to spill as cap is smaller.
