Aquariums and Fish Ponds Treatment
Water quality management is crucial for keeping aquariums healthy and clean. In that fish droppings and residual foods also pollute the water, it is important to mix the AEM in the water at a ratio of 1:1000 every month to help remediate the water. This would be ¾ of a teaspoon per gallon of water or 1 ounce for a ten gallon fish tank. It is recommended that this dosage be applied in weekly increments, rather than all at once.
When changing the water, it may be best to change approximately half of the water on a regular basis. If your tap water is chlorinated, let it set overnight in a large container in order to allow the chlorine to offgas – and be sure to include the K-Type Ceramics, which promote the micro-structuring of the water. Before adding the replacement water, be sure to include the AEM at the 1:1000 ratio.
Additionally, N-Type Ceramics (one bag for every 10 gallons) are effective in adsorbing nitrogen, which produces algae growth. S-Type Pipes, K-Type Pipes, and the Yugo Ceramic Balls all work well for aquarium bedding applications.
