Ammonia is an extremely toxic compound which in high enough quantities can be fatal to any living being inside your aquarium. Its produced by fish urine, uneaten fish food, dead and decaying plants and insects. What APIs Ammo Lock does flawlessly is protect your fish from the dangerous ammonia by detoxifying it and allowing the biological filter within your aquarium to dispose of it efficiently. Easy.
Treatment: 5ml for every 10 U.S. gallons of water. Continue to add the Ammo Lock every 2 days until ammonia is no longer detected. If still present after 7 days, partially replace the water in the aquarium.
Note: Ammo Lock does not remove ammonia, it simply breaks it down to a non-toxic form which then gets eliminated by the biological filter. As a result, your ammonia tester may still test positive for ammonia until the biological filter has been to toss away of it all.
