Description

API Pond Algaefix is a powerful water treatment that helps keep algae growth under control for your underwater sidekicks. It's specially designed for areas where the water is contained without any outflow like synthetically lined ponds, water gardens and fountains. This fast-acting algicide is effective for many types of algae including green or green water algae, string or hair algae and blanketweed in ornamental ponds. So, help keep your water clean and clear for your favorite finned friends with API's solutions.

Key Benefits
  • Effectively controls green water algae, string or hair algae and blanketweed in ornamental ponds.
  • Helps keep ponds, water gardens and ponds clean and clear.
  • Algaecide controls existing algae and helps resolve additional algae blooms.
  • This algae solution is safe for live plants and pond fish.
  • Do not use with freshwater crustaceans, including shrimp, crabs and lobsters.
Precautions

For synthetically lined pond and fountain use only, where all water is contained without any outflow. Before using, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, i.e. a fountain or aeration device to avoid fish loss due to low oxygen levels. When algae is controlled and removed by the filter or settles to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided. In warm weather, pond water carries much less oxygen. Therefore, when using during warm weather and high water temperatures, vigorous, 24 hour aeration is required for the duration of the treatment. Do not shut off pond pumps and aeration devices at night. Caution: Do not use with freshwater crustaceans, including: shrimp, crabs, and lobsters. HAZARDS TO HUMANS & ANIMALS: Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling.

Instructions

To ensure accurate dosing, determine pond volume before use. Add 1 teaspoon for each 50 US gallons of pond/fountain water or 1/4 cup for each 600 gallons of pond or fountain water. Thoroughly mix into pond water by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. It can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae. Once algae growth is under control, add one dose per week. Weekly treatments will control algal growth and reduce pond maintenance.

    Very Effective

    By Tubwater on Jul 30, 2021

    I bought a house with a 3000 gal koi pond/fountain not long ago. The pond is equipped with 2 stages of filtration. The previous owner fought murky green water for years with limited success. The very large, brightly colored Koi were barely visible. I started looking for an algaecide and settled on API Algae Fix. Within a few weeks the pond was crystal clear and remains so with regular treatments. I read several comments about the danger to fish. I have several large, valuable Koi so I was very careful to follow instruction about dosing. I measured the pond carefully to get an accurate water volume including the volume in the filtration and circulating system to determine the proper dosing I bought a house with a 3000 gal koi pond/fountain not long ago.

    Horrible packaging

    By Linda on Aug 22, 2021

    Ordered this along with 5 litter pan deodorizer sprays. They packed them all together and I’m assuming because the algaecide was a gallon and the cat spray was small it caused the algaecide to leak along with the cat sprays. What a mess. I called and questioned why they would pack them together and she said she would ship out a replacement but packed in separate boxes. NOT. They all came together again and this one leaked. Ridiculous

    Outstanding purchase

    By cdavis5534 on Jul 11, 2021

    I was amazed at the purchase I made for some very expensive pond algae preventer. Algaefix is the best product I have found to prevent algae growth in our pond. We have a 10,000 gallon pond so we go thru a lot of this stuff. When I found it online at Chewy the price was not to be believed! I saved a bundle and they shipped it in a day! I will always check Chewy's prices now before I purchase anything for my pond!!!

    Algaefix works!

    By Ellen on Sep 1, 2021

    We have a new small pond and waterfall. It developed a bit of algae since we don't have any fish in it. The Algaefix worked after 2 doses. Very happy with the product.

    Nothing at All

    By Rosa on Jul 16, 2021

    It literally did nothing. I mean absolutely nothing, not even when double dosed and give more time the directions state to work. Kind of feel it made it worse.

    Didn’t do the job

    By Katiej on Jun 11, 2021

    I’ve been applying this to my pond as directed for a few weeks now and have not noticed any difference in algae growth. The only reason I gave two stars is because it didn’t kill my koi fish.
