Ultimate® is the world’s first full-function water conditioner. With everything you need in one bottle to maintain a superior environment for your aquatic pets.
For new setups Ultimate® instantly “ages” water allowing you to enjoy your pets in action quicker without fear of the negative impact of toxic chloramine, ammonia, chlorine, heavy metals or nitrite.
To fully condition water for (1) new larger aquariums or new pond applications, (2) before, after or during water additions, or (3) before adding new fishes, amphibians, invertebrates or plants, add 1 oz. (~30 mL) of Ultimate® per 60 gallons (~227L) of water. Refer to the Product Data Sheet linked below for more information. Excellent for use when shipping fish in bags.
Recommendations: Perform regular water changes to keep the alkalinity (acid-neutralizing capacity) and pH stable. Use Ultimate® as needed to eliminate and control ammonia at the dosage rate for each 1 mg/L, or fraction thereof, of measured total ammonia or for each 0.85 mg/L of measured total ammonia-nitrogen. Use a salicylate (indolphenol) type total ammonia test kit. For dissolved-oxygen (DO) testing use either a DO meter or an indigocarmine test.
May be used at the regular dosage to stop or destroy permanganate treatments.
Complications: Do not use with permanganate-based or chlorite-based treatments. Nessler’s total ammonia test will give false, high (or off scale) readings. Winkler dissolved oxygen tests will give false, low (or zero) readings.
