AlgaeFix is a liquid algae-control product for use in ornamental fishponds, water gardens, fountains, and freshwater aquariums. Approved for use in ponds and aquariums containing live plants and fish. Controls many types of algae including "green water" blooms and filamentous algae and is colorless and non-corrosive. Algae grows when there is an excessive amount of nutrients in the water.
Directions for Use: 8 fl oz treats 2,400 gallons. 16 fl oz treats 4,800 gallons. 64 fl oz treats 19,200 gallons.
*Do not shut off pond pumps and aeration devices at night.
Add 1 teaspoonful for every 50 gallons of pond/fountain water or 1/2 cup for every 1,200 gallons. Thoroughly mix into pond/fountain by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. Can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond/fountain. Repeat application every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae.
Once algal growth is under control, add one application per week. Weekly treatments will control algal growth and reduce pond/fountain maintenance.
Before using, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration; e.g., a fountain, waterfall, or aeration device to avoid fish loss due to low oxygen levels. When algae is removed by the filter or settles to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to a harmful level if adequate aeration is not provided. Therefore, when using during warm summer months, adequate aeration is required.
