Is the effectiveness of API CO2 BOOSTER diminished by aeration and/or water circulation like CO2 gas?
No, API CO2 BOOSTER is an organic compound, not a gas.
Will API CO2 BOOSTER help control black beard/brush algae?
Yes, the active ingredient in API CO2 BOOSTER will help to control black beard algae.
Why can API CO2 BOOSTER be dosed daily, but API LEAF ZONE is only dosed weekly?
API CO2 Booster breaks down chemically to supply carbon to plants within 24 hours, thus the reason for re-dosing every 24 hours. The organic compound slowly breaks down over the 24 hour period, allowing the plants to absorb what they need. Meanwhile, API LEAF ZONE is stable in the water until the nutrients are utilized by the plants, allowing for a weekly dose.
Can API CO2 BOOSTER be used with shrimp?
Yes, API CO2 BOOSTER is safe for use with shrimp. Dosing directions should be followed.
Does the effectiveness of API CO2 BOOSTER change with the different levels of KH or any other water parameters?
No, it does not. There is not enough chemical change in the water to effect water parameters.
Will API CO2 BOOSTER change or affect any other water parameters, such as pH?
No, it will not. There is not enough chemical change in the water to affect water parameters. It would take a big alkaline or acidic change to alter the pH.
Will the required amount of API CO2 BOOSTER vary based upon the number of plants in an aquarium?
No – simply dose according to the instructions, and you’ll get great results.
