Continuum Fraction water conditioner 500ml, One of the best on the market!
The Continuum advantage.
Fraction is a technologically advanced, premium
quality, maximum strength water conditioner that makes tap water
immediately safe for freshwater or marine aquarium use. It is also the
premium product for use directly in a freshwater or marine aquarium to
remove toxic ammonia, nitrites or nitrates. It will immediately remove
over dosages of iodine or potassium permanganate based products in the
aquarium as well as over dosages of medicinal dyes. It is safe for all
marine or freshwater species including sensitive fish, live corals and
other invertebrates and live plants. Fraction contains no slime coat
enhancers as these could pollute the aquarium.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Proper control of toxic ammonia is imperative for
the health of your aquarium inhabitants. Fraction is not meant to be
used continuously to control ammonia in the aquarium, or to make up for
poor maintenance, but as an emergency measure to get the ammonia under
control until a properly working biological filter can be established.
In cases where overcrowding has occurred, Fraction will control ammonia
levels until the bacterial filter can catch up. To help restore a
non-functioning bacterial filter, use Continuum BacterGen•M or
BacterGen•F depending on type of aquarium.
Directions and protocol.
Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US gallons (200 L) of
tap water to remove up to 1 ppm of ammonia, 4 ppm of choramines, or 6
ppm of chlorine.
To treat tap water for new aquariums or water changes:
1) Test the ammonia level with an ammonia salicylate test kit. Add
Fraction as noted above, one capful per 50 US gallons per 1 ppm ammonia
tested, stir and wait for ten minutes.
2) Adjust temperature, add salt (for marine systems) following the
manufacturer's recommendations, test for proper pH and any other
parameters required for the type of animals you are keeping.
3) When all parameters are within limits, add water to the aquarium.
To treat live aquarium water:
1) First measure the ammonia level in the aquarium with an ammonia
salicylate test kit (do not use a test kit based on Nessler's reagent
because it will give a false positive reading).
2) Add 1 capful Fraction per 50 US gallons per 1 ppm ammonia level
tested. Keep pumps running and wait 10 to 15 minutes to make sure all
ammonia has reacted with the Fraction.
3) Re-test Ammonia level and repeat if necessary

human consumption. Contains hydrosulfite salts, if ingested drink
