is this safe to use in a turtle tank that also has fish?
Answer by • Feb 27, 2022
This treatment is suitable to be used on a tank with fish and other aquatic animals.
Can I used this with Stress Zyme and stress coat? Also, I'm doing partial water changes (like 5 gallon to 29 gallon tank) that I'm leaving the water out so to dechlorinate it. Do I dose based on the amount of water changed for each product (if able) or for the whole 29 gallon tank? Thank you!
Answer by • Jan 21, 2022
API Aqua Essential can be used in conjunction with any other API water conditioner or medication. Using the dosing cap on the bottle, add 5 milliliters per 50 gallons of aquarium water to treat tap water. Add 5 milliliters per 10 gallons of aquarium water to remove ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. We advise you to wait 24 hours after dosing then do a water change. If you dose within that 24 hour period there is no danger to the animals/plants in your aquarium. A follow-up water change is always beneficial to an aquatic system.
