Good water quality is the key to a healthy, beautiful aquarium, but the tap water you use often contains disinfectants, such as chlorine and chloramines, to make water safe for drinking. These same disinfectants are highly toxic to aquarium life, and may destroy fish gill tissue and prevent the uptake of oxygen, leading to fish loss. Even low levels of chlorine and chloramines irritate delicate fish tissue.
API water treatments and conditioners work instantly to make water conditions safe and livable for your fish, so you can get the most out of fish keeping and easily start or maintain your aquarium. Whether its detoxifying ammonia in your tank with AMMO LOCK, or removing harmful chlorine and chloramines with STRESS COAT, API has the right treatment for your fish keeping needs.
