Description

Improve water quality in your freshwater aquarium by removing ammonia with API Ammo-Carb Activated Filter Media for Carbon & Ammonia Removal. Dissolved organic material like waste, plant refuse and uneaten fish food can adversely affect water quality and increase ammonia levels. This can deteriorate fish gills, cause stress, illness and ultimately harm your fish. But this unique filter media from API combines Ammo-Chips, natural ammonia-removing minerals, and Activated Filter Carbon to help eliminate ammonia, organic waste, colors and odors. Suitable for any freshwater aquarium filter.

Key Benefits

  • Versatile system works with any aquarium filter, rather than a select few.
  • Helps to remove dissolved organic materials and deadly ammonia.
  • Mixes Ammo-Chips' natural ammonia-removing minerals with Activated Filter Carbon.
  • Promotes fish health and vitality.

Instructions

Use 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) of API AMMO-CARB for each 10 US gallon of aquarium or pond water.

Rinse thoroughly under cool tap water to remove any loose dust. NOTE: AMMO-CARB does not need to rinse clear. Place in filter inside the filter cartridge or in a filter media bag. Follow filter manufacture's instructions. Replace AMMO-CARB every 4 weeks, or sooner for heavily stocked aquariums or when ammonia, odors, or colors are detected.

Tip: Ammonia in an aquarium is produced by fish waste, uneaten food and organic debris as well as from chloramines in tap water. Even trace amounts of ammonia stress fish, suppressing their immune system and increasing the likelihood of disease. High levels of ammonia quickly lead to fish death. Test water weekly with an API Ammonia Test Kit or Test Strips, and replace API AMMO-CARB when testing indicates the presence of ammonia.

    Works great in any type of pump or any size aquarium.

    By Motheroffuzzies on Sep 30, 2020 top100Contributor

    I've used this product for many years and have always had excellent results. The water is clear, the levels are where they should be and the fish are happy. I've tried other brands, but this has always worked the best.

    No more ammonia blues!

    By Elaine on Mar 29, 2019

    After several days of trying to clear the ammonia from my tanks, I received the Ammo-Carb. Soon after adding it to my filter (I checked 24 hours later), the water tested almost negative! What a relief!
