Full instructions on the label.
Water authorities add chlorine and chloramines as disinfectant in the tap water supplies to the consumer. Chlorine and chloramines are harmful for fish even in concentration as low as 0.05 mg/L. These common additives found in tap water may cause gill damage in the fish, leading to gill lesions. The lesions thicken the gill filaments which result in the fish’s inability to use oxygen and release carbon dioxide. The condition eventually leads to fish death.
Hydra Aqua Dechlorinator is an effective pond water dechlorinator, which safely eliminates chloramines and chlorines from the tap water before adding in the ponds with aquatic life.
